Our Response to COVID-19

COVID-19 is impacting communities around the world that are home to our people and the people we serve. Our thoughts and support are with everyone who is working to overcome this historic challenge, and especially those whose lives have been touched directly. 

Stopping the spread of COVID-19 is a responsibility we all share. Bechtel is taking whatever actions are necessary to care for the well-being of everyone who works at our company, their families, and those whom we work alongside.

We are also here for our customers. Many of our government and commercial partners provide essential services. Throughout this crisis we will deliver for them wherever and however we are able to do so safely. The same goes for our communities. Bechtel is donating critical supplies to local hospitals and first responders in several areas near our active projects. We will look for additional ways to help those who are on the front lines in this fight.

Because circumstances can change quickly, we are monitoring developments around the world in real time, and making decisions as needed. We are updating our people and our customers daily to ensure they have the latest information.

We are also reminding colleagues of the resources available through our company to care for the stress and mental health impacts that so many experience in times of crisis. This is a major challenge in our industry. It’s critical that we support each other.

We look forward to returning to normal operations as soon as we can. In the meantime, we will continue to update you on our efforts as we move forward. Stay safe.
