Bechtel’s Impact Report

Lifting Up Communities

Muscat Airport Workers

Infrastructure that drives prosperity

Infrastructure is the architecture that connects communities and grows economies. We have seen first-hand how strategic roads and railways create economic corridors that create jobs, facilitate trade and boost prosperity.

While helping our customers bring these transformational projects to completion, we maximize local content – providing jobs and skills training that will equip people for new opportunities and career growth long after we leave. We also spend between $15 and $20 billion annually in contract awards for goods and services, and always look to the local supply chain first.
