For more than a century, URS has been at the forefront of efforts to build, expand, and modernize infrastructure. We provide life-cycle services to local municipalities and government agencies, as well as commercial clients and public-private partnerships.
URS has planned, designed and built every type of highway, bridge, tunnel, and interchange. We have assisted in the development and improvement of some of the world’s largest and most technologically advanced airports, and we have helped port authorities and marine terminal operators expand their facilities to handle the demands of increased ship traffic and to meet new security requirements. Our services for major rail transportation programs include light rail and high-speed systems around the world.
URS modernizes aging buildings and designs state-of-the-art facilities. For healthcare clients, we design hospitals that enable medical efficiencies, while meeting the needs of patients and their families, and our work on educational facilities includes multimillion-dollar capital improvement projects. In addition, our expertise encompasses government, recreational, and industrial facilities.
With more than 400 architects and engineers with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accreditation, we are a leader in green buildings and the design of LEED-certified facilities. In the United Kingdom, we specialize in designs that meet Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) certification standards.
In the water resources market, we provide a full range of services for programs to modernize and expand water supply and treatment facilities, and combined sewer overflow systems. Using advanced modeling and data analysis, our watershed management capabilities provide solutions to erosion, nonpoint source pollution, and other environmental concerns. We also design and build dams, levees and reservoirs throughout the world to curtail flooding, provide irrigation and drinking water, and generate hydroelectric power.
