Balfour Beatty Acquires RT Dooley

September 28, 2010

Balfour Beatty Construction U.S., a division of U.K.-based Balfour Beatty plc, has announced its intent to acquire RT Dooley Construction Co., adding significant new capabilities and moving the company closer to its goal of becoming a single source offering multiple commercial construction solutions to an international client base.

Charlotte, NC-based RT Dooley, specializes in corporate headquarters, corporate interiors and mission-critical infrastructure and is currently operating in five states. With the acquisition, RT Dooley joins Balfour Beatty’s Charlotte-based Southeast Division blending its own expertise with Balfour Beatty’s experience in exterior core and shell construction.

In addition to Charlotte, Balfour Beatty has offices in Atlanta, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Fort Worth, Miami, Nashville, Orlando, Raleigh, Tampa, Washington, D.C., and West Palm Beach.

Because of the complementary nature of the companies’ businesses, no staff cuts are planned as a result of the acquisition. RT Dooley, which will be known as RT Dooley – A Balfour Beatty Company, will remain at its current location, operating under its current leadership team with a similar degree of autonomy as other companies that have joined the Balfour Beatty family of businesses in the U.S.
