Integrated Engineering and Construction Solutions

We're experts in design-build, one of the most popular and rapidly growing delivery methods for construction projects in the United States. As our clients’ single point of accountability, we work as a collaborative design-build team to maximize your return on investment, manage risk, and deliver high-value projects within your schedule and budget. Rather than hiring separate engineering and construction entities, it’s advantageous for owners to choose one partner to do it all. Offering a full spectrum of engineering, procurement, and construction services, Black & Veatch is one of the most diversified contractors in the industry.

Design and Preconstruction

As an integrated design-builder, Black & Veatch’s design and construction teams operate as a single unit. While the design team consists of experts with specialized focus areas, one cannot function independently. We understand that to achieve success, we must work together cohesively and collaboratively to make design decisions in the best interest of the project.
