Bechtel’s Impact Report


Hamad airport

Building Gateways to the Future

Our customers see airports not just as gateways to their cities and cultures – but also to the future. The rapid acceleration of smart technologies is changing the way humanity evolves and is giving us the tools to take better care of our environment. Aviation doesn’t stand still, and the tools we deploy – digital twins, big data, holistic master-planning, innovative engineering solutions, AI – are all part of the solution to delivering these visionary mega-projects.

We have been on some extraordinary journeys with our long-term aviation partners. This has resulted in important breakthroughs in technology and sustainability. Especially now as the industry faces the dual challenge of a global health pandemic and decarbonization. Their airports and aviation hubs are setting the global standard for smart, modern, creative and highly efficient spaces for their guests to enjoy.

Above all, we understand and respect that no matter how big and complex the job, airports are a business, and business must continue with little to no disruption. Our team of top-calibre planners, designers, engineers and project managers, will work around you to support complex expansion, modernization and new-build aviation projects that will stand the test of time.
