THe managing director of Heery International, the construction management arm of Balfour Beatty, is to leave the company following a restructuring of the firm.
Balfour Beatty Management was set up two years ago by Balfour Beatty to take on programme management roles in the infrastructure sector. It is headed by ex-Atkins employee David James.
A Balfour Beatty source confirmed Rice’s imminent departure. The source said: “There have been a number of changes since the merger including personnel switch and office moves.”
The Balfour source added that the Heery brand may well be dropped following the merger. He said: “It’s quite conceivable that could happen. It will be simpler to operate with a single brand. ”
