Building a Century

An updated version of the definitive history of Bechtel

On the occasion of its centennial in 1998, Bechtel published "Building a Century," which chronicled the people and projects that had combined to make the the company a global leader in engineering and construction.

Now we've put the book online, along with a new chapter updating our work since 1998. 

This online version includes profiles of four generations of family leadership, links to project profiles, and more than 200 photos in easy-to-view galleries.

We hope you enjoy it.
