Black & Veatch is a leading engineering, consulting and construction company. They are employee-owned and have more than 100 offices worldwide.
Black & Veatch was founded in 1915 as a two-person partnership between former University of Kansas School of Engineering graduates Ernest Bateman (E.B.) Black and Nathan Thomas (N.T.) Veatch. The company began with 12 employees and an office in Kansas City, Missouri. It landed two large contracts, one in power and one in water, in its first year. The company’s strong ties with government work began in 1917, as the United States Government War Department asked Black & Veatch to supervise construction of military training camps during World War I.
Today, the company continues to experience strong growth across its core markets. Black & Veatch currently has a global workforce of more than 10,000 working in over 100 offices worldwide with projects completed in more than 100 countries on six continents.
