We've been perfecting our construction expertise for over 100 years

Black & Veatch has been leading the construction industry since our earliest days of building America’s heartlands and infrastructure around the world. We deliver the highest standards of safety, quality and efficiency and adapt our diverse construction solutions to mitigate risk and suit your budget. Working with Black & Veatch means your project will result in the most value possible over its lifecycle.


Our expansive view of safety and prevention together with detailed and efficient planning are at the heart of successful projects. 


Contracting flexibility matches your risk appetite and enables tailored delivery solutions that overcome challenging geographical, environmental or technical requirements. 


Single-source in-house construction results in greater schedule control and resource allocation throughout the project lifecycle, raising quality and lowering costs. 

We provide a unique professional experience for our clients

As a 100% employee-owned company, our professionals are all-in on your success. We rely on our foundational engineering history to ensure efficient and cost-effective constructability, but we're also agile in our adaptation to your unique needs. Our technical expertise and relationships with OEM providers means that the solutions we develop are actually the solutions you need.


We meet you where you are with what you need

Our approach equips your business with everything you need to succeed, supporting good decision-making and better outcomes. The entire construction project or program is led by a single point of contact, with an integrated team. By focusing on you and connecting our business, technical, construction and data-driven capabilities, we help you achieve faster, more profitable, reliable and sustainable results. Our infrastructure lifecycle model combined with our in-house construction capabilities gives you greater delivery flexibility and risk options as well as increased cost and schedule certainty. 

Our construction experience extends across all industries we serve, benefiting from our holistic view of infrastructure lifecycles. We have experience with multiple contracting approaches as a prime contractor, design-builder, construction manager at-risk (CMAR), major subcontractor, joint venture partner or consortium member. Black & Veatch also self-performs construction trades as a direct hire, as a construction manager of multiple subcontractors, or a combination of both.
