Highways Steel Services

BS Steels delivers complex and bespoke highways steel solutions. BS Steels is a Tier 2 recommended contractor with Connect Plus. We regularly partner framework and other contractors, including Osborne, Balfour Beatty and Atkins.

Highway management presents a multitude of engineering challenges. These, and demanding key performance targets from the Highways Agency, require contractors to deliver effective, timely solutions.

BS Steels applies a range of alternative resources and techniques. These enable strategically planned maintenance to meet targets. For more urgent needs we provide a rapid and effective response, with a proven record in assessment of a requirement, design, fabrication and delivery of a solution.
