Ports & marine

Ports and Marine

Ports and harbors are essential elements of a regional economy. We work closely with our customers and stakeholders to ensure that every maritime terminal delivered—either reconstruction or new-build—meets or exceeds their expectations. Environmental, social, financial, and economic elements are also key factors in our planning to ensure that the end result is both sustainable and commercially viable. We also have in-depth knowledge of the macroeconomic trends that affect port operations. Expertise includes:

  • Feasibility studies
  • Master planning
  • Infrastructure planning
  • Terminal planning and design
  • Value-added activities and production cycle assessments
  • Coastal engineering
  • Environmental impact assessments and programs
  • Pollution control and waste management

Urban Development

For decades, we have helped customers bring ambitious concepts to life, including large-scale urban development projects ranging from free-trade zones to entire cities that include the design and development of roads and infrastructure, utilities, communications, and residential areas.

In order to deliver projects of such magnitude successfully, Bechtel combines smart planning, resilient design, technical know-how and an integrated approach to make visions become a reality.  As a lead partner of the Smart Cities Council, Bechtel is sharing the benefits of this experience and its knowledge of planning, financing and sustainable solutions, with cities around the world.  We are also working with the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and others to discuss the importance of resilient infrastructure for long-term prosperity.
