Bechtel Recognized As One of the World's Top Contractors

RESTON, Virginia - September 24, 2012

Company Ranks Highest among U.S.-Based Contractors on ENR’s 2012 Lists

Bechtel has once again been named one of the world’s top contractors by Engineering News-Record (ENR), a leading publication for the engineering and construction industry. 

The company ranked 5th  on the magazine’s Top 225 International Contractors list, which is determined by the revenue a company generates outside of its home country.  Bechtel ranked 10th on the Top 225 Global Contractors list, which is based on a company’s revenue worldwide.   On both lists, Bechtel was the highest ranked company headquartered in the United States. 

“Each year customers count on us to deliver some of the most challenging projects in the world and we continue to do that through the knowledge and dedication of the people who work at Bechtel,” said Bechtel President and Chief Operating Officer Bill Dudley.  “These rankings are made possible because of our customers and our colleagues and we thank them both.”

In addition to being ranked among the top international and global contractors, Bechtel has been named ENR’s top U.S. contractor for the last 14 years.
