Highlights of 2018



As 2018 comes to an end, BHC look back on our success on sites across the United Kingdom. 

This past year we have been involved in projects as far south as Drake Circus Leisure Development in Plymouth, to projects located as north as the Inverurie Community Campus.

We’ve worked on projects as small as the 20 tonne Dundee RCPP for MVV environment and as large as the 15,000 tonne redevelopment of the Edinburgh St James centre.


We would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing what 2019 brings.
