Helping Communities Through Impact Infrastructure



We are committed to building sustainable projects that make a lasting impact in the communities that need it the most. This is how we are building a better world.

We created in 2019 because we believe that infrastructure is a force for social good. delivers sustainable, scalable infrastructure projects to address local challenges through what we call “impact infrastructure.”

Impact Infrastructure is infrastructure that is tied to the wellbeing of communities. It’s resilient and built at the community level. Importantly, it integrates long-term risks and vulnerability assessments into building flexible, sustainable solutions that reduce the adverse impacts of natural hazards and human-made catastrophes. addresses challenges such as electrification and digital connectivity, food security, land regeneration, and climate-resilient housing. This critical work involves proactively identifying issues, designing solutions, and deploying the know-how to engineer and build for the greater good.

Our Focus

Every project starts with a social need – for example, tackling life-threatening illnesses or establishing a safe haven for women to prosper. From there, we work closely with local communities, agencies, and experts, and draw upon Bechtel’s global engineering, construction and project management experience, to develop a framework for project delivery.

Our Approach

Applying our three pillars of impact, partners with communities and stakeholders to identify the social need; help design and deliver infrastructure solutions; and share the data and lessons learned to maximize the benefits.
