Balfour Beatty



Balfour Beatty is a leading international infrastructure group and a FTSE listed company. Balfour Beatty offer a range of services including civil engineering, construction, highways, ground engineering and railway engineering.

The request that came from London Tunnels Division of Balfour Beatty was one of our more unusual enquiries and certainly not a standard document scanning request.

Balfour Beatty had a number of large lever arch files and the problem they faced was getting these replicated. Sounds easy but each folder was different, contained towards 1000 pages each and also contained media on USB sticks and CDs. Exact copies of each folder were required and a digital version too. No easy task – documents to scan, print, re populate the folders, build a digital archive and quality check.

ORS devised the most efficient way to replicate these folders in order to keep costs realistic and time frames tight. Trying to complete this task in house would have occupied a member of staff for many days. Without a high quality high speed scanner and production quality laser printer the task would have been most peoples worst nightmare. Outsourcing the task took the pain away for Balfour Beatty and allowed their staff to continue with their core tasks.

ORS Group have an excellent reputation for quality scanning services, with an enviable client list. As proven in this case study we also have the capability to complete complicated and unusual paper based tasks that normally would occupy valuable staff members or expensive temp staff for days on end.
