Accelerating the pace of innovation
SInce 1898, Bechtel has been a pioneer of innovation in the industry. In addition to completing thousands of one-of-a-kind projects, we led advances that changed the industry forever, such as requiring hardhats be worn at large construction projects; an industry practice that started with Bechtel at the Hoover Dam.
Bechtel’s unique expertise in engineering, procurement and construction in conjunction with a global reach help us anticipate, create, pilot, and quickly implement new ways of doing things. Our huge global supply chain exposes us to the best and most innovative partners.
We believe the key to innovation is to fail safe, fail fast, and fail forward. We follow a six-step internal process to test assumptions, integrate solutions in the business, and ensure a steady stream of diverse ideas. Our goal is rapidly to deliver mature innovation to our projects for the benefit of our customers.
