Bechtel, a global project management, engineering, procurement, and construction leader, announced today it will consolidate its global headquarters in the Washington, D.C. area. The company will move corporate positions from Houston and San Francisco to Reston, Va. by the end of 2018.
“For more than a decade, Bechtel’s corporate leadership has been distributed across Houston, Reston, and San Francisco,” said Jack Futcher, Bechtel’s chief operating officer. “Consolidating the corporate leadership and operations in Reston will enable the company to thrive in the current fast-paced business environment – one that demands faster and seamless decision-making, integration, and collaboration.”
Bechtel remains committed to the markets in California and Texas. The company is executing and pursuing critical infrastructure and energy projects in both states, and will maintain an office in San Francisco. Bechtel’s Oil, Gas and Chemicals business unit will continue to be headquartered in Houston and the Infrastructure business unit has recently opened an office in southern California.
