Black & Veatch’s increased footprint in the Houston area follows the company’s recent acquisition of Texas-based Bird Electric, bringing enhanced construction capabilities to a wider client base and building upon Black & Veatch’s capabilities and integrated solutions offerings. In addition, clean energy mandates and the Inflation Reduction Act are expected to drive job growth in Texas and throughout the nation.
“The Deer Park office strengthens Black & Veatch’s commitment to the local economy while continuing to provide craft employees with comprehensive skills training for successful careers,” said Shelby Barbier, Senior Vice President and Global Construction Leader for Black & Veatch. “Expanding our construction capabilities is critical to position the company for future engineering, procurement, and construction growth.”
As an all-in-one training and recruitment center designed to accelerate hiring, the Deer Park office can accommodate walk-in prospects, hire for multiple job sites, assist candidates with applications, and provide onboarding. The office will also offer training services in line with the company’s participation as a Registered Apprenticeship Program.
