BAA capital projects director Andrew Wolstenholme is to join Balfour Beatty in February.

Wolstenholme, one of the brains behind the construction of Heathrow Terminal 5, will become managing director of Balfour Beatty Management.

His is the latest in a long line of departures from the company since it was taken over by Spanish contractor Ferrovial in 2006. Among the others are Tony Douglas, the former chief executive of Heathrow, and Roger Bayliss, former construction director of the capital projects division.

A BAA spokesperson said Wolstenholme’s departure had triggered a review of existing roles. Rob Stewart, construction director, will hold the post until a permanent director is appointed.
