OVERLAND PARK, Kan., May 3, 2022 /CSRwire/ – Underscoring its leadership in helping clients achieve advanced decarbonization, sustainability and resilience solutions, Black & Veatch announces that the Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) latest “Top 500 Design Firms” Sourcebook ranks it among the world’s leaders in power, telecommunications and water.
ENR’s rankings are based on revenue from the company’s global operations. The Top 500 Design Firms Sourcebook ranked Black & Veatch’s power business No. 2 for the seventh consecutive year. Black & Veatch remained in the top 10 for telecommunications and water, cementing the company’s standing as an expert in solving humanity’s critical human infrastructure challenges.
“As the megatrends shaping the world rely on engineering and construction solutions, we are working with our clients to embrace innovation and deliver the integrated sustainability, reliability and resilience outcomes that help them achieve their goals,” said Steve Edwards, Black & Veatch’s CEO.
The latest ENR rankings come on the heels of Black & Veatch’s recent transformation of its key management and operational structures, intent on meeting the more integrated infrastructure needs of its expanding client base. The transformation was designed with sustainability-driven global megatrends such as electrification, decarbonization, digitization and resilience in mind, serving an increasingly diverse client base ranging from Fortune 1000 companies to utilities, developers and local, state and national governments.
The company said the past year has shown that the definition of -- and demand for -- critical infrastructure services and solutions has continued to evolve.
“Our strong showing in this year’s rankings reflects how our organizational transformation allows us to deliver more comprehensive solutions and value to our clients as they face complex issues such as the energy transition, repowering of the power industry, water scarcity, and connecting and securing society,” Edwards said.
Black & Veatch continues to drive innovation across critical infrastructure markets:
