Balfour’s USA spy HQ
UK CONTRACTOR Balfour Beatty has bagged a £750million contract to build one of the world's biggest spy bases.
A consortium led by the firm will build a data centre for the secretive US National Security Agency - in a huge boost for the UK.
The one million square foot site - larger than 13 football pitches - will house super-computers to "eavesdrop" on terrorists around the globe.
Staff will pass intelligence to Homeland Security - and monitor cyber warfare threats.
American authorities have slapped a "mission critical" tag on the espionage site - at Camp William near Salt Lake City in Utah.
Balfour is best known in the UK for building schools and widening the M25.
A spokesman was unavailable for comment last night.
