Expertise around the world

CB&I’s engineering expertise extends around the world and across a variety of disciplines, adding value through every phase of a project. We assign specific types of project work in certain offices, allowing our engineers to develop specialized expertise. Then we connect the offices into a worldwide network of engineering centers—located in Europe, North America, the Middle East, Asia and Australia—to better serve the diverse geographic and technical needs of our clients while ensuring consistent standards. 

Cutting-edge thought leaders

Our engineering staff is composed of highly-experienced, dedicated professionals. More than a third of our engineers have advanced degrees, and many are considered leading experts in their fields. Our engineers are active in national and international committees responsible for the technical codes and standards used in our industry. 

Using the optimum tools to get the job done

Our engineers and designers use sophisticated proprietary and in-house software to monitor and manage every phase of our projects, from concept design through construction and startup. These tools allow us to efficiently and accurately develop schedules, allocate resources, monitor work progress, track costs and provide detailed reports for our customers. They enhance our ability to deliver projects on time, on budget and with superior results.
