Our story We believe that the way we work can add meaning and value to the world. That ideas inspire positive change. That coloring outside the lines can illuminate fresh perspectives. And that small details yield important realizations. Above all, we believe that collaboration is the best way forward. We specialize in engineering, architecture, environmental and construction services. While we are most well-known for adding beauty and structure to communities through high-performance buildings and smart infrastructure, we provide much more than that. We create an unshakable foundation for progress because our multidisciplinary teams also include scientists, economists, builders, analysts and artists. Our employees, working in 225 locations around the world, push open the doors to what’s possible each and every day.
We listen first to understand the complexity of our clients’ needs and the context of their aspirations. We recognize that the smallest of details can yield the biggest realizations, and that sometimes the most brilliant solutions begin with the utmost simplicity. So we ask—and answer—the straightforward questions that uncover brave new possibilities.
We think global and act local, assembling the right mix of talent and experience for every project. Our dynamic and integrated teams live the tenets of collaboration, adding value every step of the way to solve tough challenges and inspire positive change. We work side-by-side with our client partnersâ€”wherever they are in the worldâ€”to improve lives, grow communities and accelerate progress.
We push boundaries to transcend the status quo in all that we do. We are motivated by the excitement that comes with navigating uncharted territory and imagining what could be. First we dream it, then we do it, and remarkable realities come to life.
We do the right things for the right reasons, whether we are working on our clientsâ€™ projects or making decisions about our own internal practices. We believe in an approach that is relevant, responsible and accountable, and solutions that leave the world a better place by providing meaning and value.
We deliver our best work by designing smart, whether we are creating something tangible or devising a new way of thinking or doing. We welcome the awareness that comes with curiosity and compelling dialogue. By taking a fresh perspective to the way we approach our work, we are able to bridge the gap between art and science, natural and man-made, and ideas and achievement. And every day we embrace the prospect that each new project represents the opportunity to deliver our best work yet.
