Bechtel in the UK

1952-2012: Celebrating 60 years in the U.K.

Bechtel has provided service to customers in the United Kingdom for 60 years, designing and building projects including power plants, refineries, rail systems, and communication networks.

Our London office has taken a lead role in some of the UK's most important projects, including the West Coast Main Line, and  Channel Tunnel and High Speed 1, the nation's first high-speed rail line.

Today we are working on the renovation of three lines of the London Underground. A Bechtel-led team is also overseeing construction of a 21-kilometer tunnel that will be the centerpiece of Crossrail, a new railway connecting London to commuter areas east and west of the city.

Ongoing work also includes gas development, refinery, and liquefied natural gas projects in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Current and recent projects include the Reliance Jamnagar Export project, partly engineered in London, which has taken the capacity of this Indian located refinery to 1.2 million barrels per day. Other projects include major gas processing facilities in Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia, as well as the new Doha International Airport in Qatar.
