Beginning with our role as part of the consortium that built the Hoover Dam in the 1930s, URS has a long history constructing some of the industry’s most challenging projects. Our global expertise includes working in remote, environmentally sensitive locations, under harsh weather conditions, and on large, multi-faceted projects for both private and public sector clients.
We build, expand, and modernize a wide range of transportation infrastructure, construct systems for water treatment, conveyance, and flood control, and build levees, ports and harbors, and facilities.
For the power industry, URS constructs, retrofits, and maintains virtually every type of power plant, as well as the systems that transmit and distribute electricity. We are specialists in the development and installation of clean air technologies that reduce emissions and help power generating facilities comply with air quality regulations. We also perform major component replacements, such as steam generators and reactor vessel heads for nuclear power plants.
To help industrial and commercial clients meet production requirements, we build grassroots facilities and expand or upgrade existing ones. We also design and construct upstream oil and gas facilities, transportation systems, refineries and petrochemical plants for major oil and gas clients around the world.
In all our projects, we maintain a keen focus on safety. We have been recognized by organizations including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents for our exceptional safety performance and culture.
