OVERLAND PARK, Kan., April 30, 2020 /3BL Media/ – At its heart the world’s digital transformation relies on clean energy and the rapid, resilient transmission of data and information. Securing top four finishes in three key Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) rankings puts Black & Veatch at the center of enabling the digital society.
This marks the fifth year in a row that Black & Veatch has ranked #2 in Power in the ENR’s Top 500 Design Firms report. In industries being reshaped by digital transformation, Black & Veatch continues to be a strong presence, securing a #3 ranking for Telecommunications and #4 for Water. The company is successfully fulfilling clients’ drive for greater sustainability – be it through more energy-efficient water services, greater use of renewable power generation, or widescale distributed infrastructure deployment to advance power utilities, commercial and industrial customers.
“One of the things that sets us apart is our highly innovative culture that gives us the ability to add value for our clients at every point of the infrastructure life cycle. As digital transformation cuts across traditional boundaries, we are also increasingly able to foster new ways of working by sharing the deep institutional knowledge within our business across new elements of our client base,” said Steve Edwards, CEO of Black & Veatch. “The engineering and construction sectors in which we operate are evolving rapidly. Our continued success in the ENR rankings demonstrates how well we are able to help clients stay ahead of these changes.”
In today’s digital era success requires proven expertise in the design, construction and management of critical infrastructure; underpinned by leading-edge capabilities in data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning. Utilities, commercial enterprises and governments need partners able to plan and deliver a physical asset base fully augmented with sensors, wireless connectivity and data analytics to create cyber-physical systems which enhance planning, operation and management.
