We may be a medium-sized company, but we’re #1 in the U.S. in constructing hydropower projects, according to a 2016 survey of the nation’s largest contractors. Our experience in constructing hydropower projects grew naturally out of our early work in dams, penstocks, and pipelines. Owners count on us to manage and construct power plants that are going to offer their customers and communities more clean power than ever before. We have worked in challenging environments, above and below ground, in all types of terrain and weather, under all types of contracts, including design-assist. Our teams are accustomed to the strict regulatory oversight and environmental constraints associated with hydropower production. These projects are always multi-faceted; we like that. Take a look at where we’ve been recently.
