Black & Veatch leverages innovative sustainability technologies and upgrades existing infrastructure to transition to a next generation facility.

Modernization and Sustainability

Black & Veatch offers the capability, scalability, and global resources to select sites that will meet future capacity and sustainability needs. We also leverage existing infrastructure to transition your facilities into the next generation. We’re able to design and implement existing facility improvements without compromising operations or risking shutdowns.

We create sustainability models and solutions for every phase of the infrastructure lifecycle. Black & Veatch collaborates with visionary business leaders who are mindful of their environmental impact, seeing water usage as an opportunity for financial and sustainable optimizations. Our solutions include cooling technology, water quality and treatment, source redundancy, water system retrofits, and sustainability consulting. As the technology industry sharpens its focus on net zero emissions, we bring the expertise needed to ensure every facility decision considers sustainable applications and technologies.


We collaborate with our clients to understand the current state of your business-critical facilities and your modernization goals. These conversations shape our assessment of your facility’s ability to support future capacity and performance needs. We also ensure water availability through integrated resources planning.

Properly aligning your power and cooling systems is key to optimizing energy efficiency and ensuring resilience. Our industry-accredited mechanical and electrical engineers begin with a review of the electrical topology to understand if it will support future growth requirements. Black & Veatch takes critical steps in extending the life and capabilities of your new and existing facilities and identifies additional ways to reduce your carbon footprint. 

Finding the right balance between physical space, required infrastructure, and virtual capacity is a continuous challenge. We make sure your physical space and mechanical and electrical systems are appropriately sized to your current and future capacity needs. Modular systems are an effective strategy for maximizing space because additional container units can quickly be added or removed to support changing technology needs. Our comprehensive approach emphasizes pre-engineering and standardization for deployment in any location to ensure quick speed-to-market.

It’s important to continue monitoring your operation and measuring key performance metrics post-deployment. Black & Veatch helps our clients establish standard operating procedures (SOPs) and offers a series of additional services to track and manage your assets. Our experience working across the full infrastructure lifecycle uniquely positions our team to optimize your facility with leading edge, sustainable solutions.
