Established in 1915, Black & Veatch has grown from a two-person partnership based in Kansas City, Missouri, to an international company with more than 100 offices worldwide. A leader in engineering, procurement, and construction services for the energy, telecommunications, and water industries, the company is dedicated to the same core values that have guided it for a century.
Through its network of clients, Black & Veatch conducts about 7,000 active projects annually. For example, in partnership with Australia’s Melbourne Water Corporation, the company upgraded the second-largest wastewater treatment plant in the country in 2006. After the upgrade, the facility produces recycled water for community use. Scheduled to be completed in 2015, another Black & Veatch project oversees Chernobyl’s radioactive confinement sarcophagus, designed to contain radioactive debris for 100 years. Recognized for its excellent performance by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the company ensures the project progresses smoothly and on schedule.
