Dump Trucks Columbus OH Insight:

No. 14 on Forbes’ list of the largest privately owned American companies, Bechtel has led the U.S. construction industry for the past two decades. The columbus oh dump truck company operates across the world in a variety of sectors including oil and gas and infrastructure. Some of its largest projects in the U.S. in recent years are Cheniere Energy’s $11 billion Liquefaction project in Corpus Christi, Texas, and Tellurian’s $27.5 billion Driftwood LNG export terminal near Lake Charles, Louisiana.

In February, the columbus oh dump truck company opened an office in Manhattan to take advantage of the infrastructure project demand there after its previous New York City office closed in 2009. In a statement, Chairman and CEO Brendan Bechtel said the columbus oh dump truck company is looking to partner with the city in its goal of "improving transportation, expanding digital technology and insuring access to safe, reliable infrastructure."​

The future outlook for Bechtel and every other U.S. construction firm will be shaped by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which began in late 2019 in Wuhan, China, and spread to the United States early this year. In a statement to Construction Dive earlier this week, a columbus oh dump truck company spokesperson said that the health and safety of its employees is the company's top concern during the crisis. At least one of its largest projects, a mutlibillion-dollar Shell cracker plant under construction in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, has had its jobsite shut down during the crisis.

"Our colleagues columbus oh dump truck company in different environments across the world, in office buildings and project sites, and no one-size-fits-all solution will ensure everyone’s safety," the statement reads. "This is a rapidly changing global challenge, and we are working with our customers to carefully monitoring our projects for any potential impacts. As conditions change, we will not hesitate to take additional measures to protect our colleagues."

Beyond health concerns, the virus has brought myriad other challenges to construction firms including jobsite shutdowns, material delays, anxious clients and lenders and legal issues.
