Today’s era of seamless economic and social engagement that ignores nationalities, political boundaries and geographical distance, MWH is truly one global community. We are a 24-hour-per-day enterprise. Distances are collapsing. Globalization is going forward. We are better, stronger and more capable because of the blending of cultures, work ethic, intellect and education – and together we accept our solemn responsibility. Our goal is to remain the gold standard of the wet infrastructure sector – where engineering and construction are only part of what we do. As a fully integrated worldwide company, our organization and our people are aligned with the critical needs of a fast-changing planet. Our global platform allows us to move the best technologies around the world to the point of need for our clients, no matter where they are. Our position and service offerings in countries around the world are broad, deep and respected by both our peers and our clients. At MWH, Building a Better World is more than a feel-good statement. It is our commitment to more sustainable and efficient use of resources in our own communities and throughout the world. It’s about doing our work better to help ensure that we keep our planet blue for future generations. A rich and diverse history, our heritage stems from three companies that joined to form MWH as it is known today: James M. Montgomery Consulting Engineers (JMM), Watson Hawksley and Harza Engineering Company. These mergers – JMM and Watson Hawksley in 1992 and Montgomery Watson and Harza in 2001 – galvanized the company’s rise to prominence on the world platform where we are now a true leader and a formidable competitor in the water infrastructure industry. JMM was founded in 1945 in southern California. In the early 1990s, JMM merged with English firm Watson Hawksley, Ltd. Of High Wycombe, England, which originated in London in the 1850s. This created a company of global scope with similar corporate cultures that honored individual expertise and encouraged teamwork, innovation and initiative; and a common view of the industry’s future. The name was eventually changed to Montgomery Watson Harza then to MWH Global in 2001. In 2010, MWH acquired United Kingdom (UK) based Biwater Services Ltd, a leading UK water construction and engineering firm. The acquisition afforded MWH a broader range of skills to address the creation, management and optimization of existing water infrastructure assets and enhanced our ability to service the full asset life cycle of our clients from feasibility through commissioning and operation. The companies have a shared heritage in the UK market that dates back to 1820. Today, MWH is comprised of more than 180 global offices in 35 countries, operating on six continents bringing highly trained engineers, managers, consultants, policy and project advocates, informational technologists, economists, statisticians, public relations professionals and financial experts together. We continue to be dedicated to innovation and committed to mastering and applying emerging technologies to create client-focused results. We have engaged in the engineering, construction, financing and management of some of the world’s largest and most technically significant water and natural resources projects in the world. We continue to build on our strong foundation and are constantly improving our services by delivering projects faster and more efficiently through our global resources, aggressively sharing knowledge at an accelerated pace and demonstrating our willingness to change and adapt.

Construction & Construction Management
MWH Global Sustainable ConstructionSustainable Construction – Building Confidence Based on a Foundation of Trust

MWH offers a full range of high-value, “start-to-finish� preconstruction, construction and construction management services. We provide engineering, design, construction, commissioning, and start up for projects ranging from water treatment and conveyance to environmental remediation and renewable energy. We have the necessary capabilities, professional talent, universal reach and capital to offer our clients fully-integrated project delivery services that set new standards in quality, value, timeliness and cost efficiency.

We consistently rank among the top contractors and construction management service providers in project excellence and construction safety, as demonstrated by the numerous awards we win every year from the most prestigious organizations in the world. On every project, we use cost-effective, sustainable construction methods and innovative thinking to meet our clients’ needs while preserving and protecting resources and causing less pollution and waste for future generations.

On the Austin WTP4 Project, for example, we are grinding the cleared trees into mulch we can use for dust control on the 92-acre site. And, prior to clearing the trees, we had two native plant relocation days where the public was invited to the site to remove and transplant as many plants and trees as they wished. This process saved money, eliminated waste and reused materials already on the site.

MWH is a proven leader in developing comprehensive, cost-effective and adaptive solutions for projects and programs ranging in size from $500, 000 to more than $3.3 billion. Examples include:

An $873 million utility and facility expansion project in Florida.
$11 billion of environmental restoration and construction for the United States Air Force around the world.
A $3.3 billion water and wastewater capital asset improvement program serving 20 percent of England’s population.

Drawing from our global presence, our construction management experts share the best of our international experience, innovative technology and repeatable solutions. For our clients, this means:

A single point of responsibility to consolidate liability and avoid engineering/contractor conflicts.
Proven budgeting, scheduling and cost-control systems to effectively manage complex design and construction programs or large construction management-at-risk programs
Integrated project management control systems to help our clients consistently meet regulatory deadlines and strict budgetary requirements on PM/CM programs.
Cost savings through streamlined procurement processes and national or global purchasing agreements.
Local and regional expertise to tackle permitting requirements, regulatory concerns and challenging local political and economic issues.
Proactive community outreach measures to build trust and provide jobs to local firms, leaving a lasting, positive legacy long after the project is complete.

We offer a full range of alternative delivery methods and pricing options tailored to fit client and project needs, including construction management-at-risk, design-build, design/construction management-at-risk, construction management-as-agent and flexible pricing approaches.
