U.S. Gulf Coast workforce development

Building on our experience with the Business Roundtable’s Gulf Coast Workforce Development Initiative, we are implementing a comprehensive program to recruit and develop an estimated 8,000 construction workers to support the energy boom along the U.S. Gulf Coast.

In partnership with the National Center for Construction Education and Research and local community colleges, Bechtel is developing certification programs in critical crafts. We are also working with the U.S. Navy and the Department of Labor to provide veterans productive careers in construction.
