Program Management

Black & Veatch relieves pressures from clients undertaking massive projects by delivering global capital programs, regardless of location. 

Program management is the process of managing multiple ongoing projects requiring hundreds to thousands of separate activities. Black & Veatch’s experts have the knowledge and resources to plan, implement and integrate every aspect of a client's comprehensive program. 

Our approach to program management reflects our ability to coordinate and prioritize our vast resources. We also manage programs across numerous markets and in multiple countries. This ensures that resources are directed at the needs of our clients. 

Programs can take on many forms and include multiple types of installations. Some include many single projects of a similar type, such as retrofitting the same type of air quality equipment to many generating units at multiple sites. A program can also include managing different types of technology additions to a group of units at one site. Other programs may involve delivering a series of units to a single client over a period of time. We coordinate of all the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), including cost and schedule.
