Black & Veatch Expands Construction Presence in Texas with New Office, Recruitment Plans

Energy transition, company growth fueling the addition of more than 800 craft positions

Black & Veatch, a global leader in critical infrastructure solutions, today announced the opening of a new recruitment office in Deer Park, Texas (Houston). The office will serve to accelerate the company’s goal to add more than 800 new craft positions in Texas within the next nine months.

Black & Veatch’s increased footprint in the Houston area follows the company’s recent acquisition of Texas-based Bird Electric, bringing enhanced construction capabilities to a wider client base and building upon Black & Veatch’s world-class capabilities and integrated solutions offerings. In addition, clean energy mandates and the Inflation Reduction Act are expected to drive job growth in Texas and throughout the nation.

“The Deer Park office strengthens Black & Veatch’s commitment to the local economy while continuing to provide craft employees with comprehensive skills training for successful careers,” said Shelby Barbier, Senior Vice President and Global Construction Leader for Black & Veatch. “Expanding our construction capabilities is critical to position the company for future engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) growth.”

As an all-in-one training and recruitment center designed to accelerate hiring, the Deer Park office can accommodate walk-in prospects, hire for multiple job sites, assist candidates with applications and provide onboarding. The office will also offer training services in line with the company’s participation as a Registered Apprenticeship Program.

Editor’s Notes

Black & Veatch is enabling social progress with its diversity, equity and inclusion efforts. The company was recently named by Newsweek as one of “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity” in 2023.

For the first time in Black & Veatch’s 108-year history, in 2022, construction hours of exposure exceeded office hours of exposure. The company met its safety goals despite greater risks associated with construction.
