Bechtel is headquartered in San Francisco with 40 offices around the world and 50,000 employees. Bechtel has worked on more than 22,000 projects in 140 countries on all seven continents. Company revenue exceeded 30 billion in 2009. Also in 2010, Engineering News-Record (ENR), the leading U.S. trade publication for the engineering and construction industry, named Bechtel the top U.S. contractor for the 12th straight year. Bechtel participated in the building of Hoover Dam in the 1930s. It has also had involvement in several other high profile construction engineering projects, including the Channel Tunnel, numerous power projects, refineries, and nuclear power plants, BART, Jubail Industrial City and Kingdom Centre and Tower in Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong International Airport, the Big Dig, the rebuilding of the civil infrastructure of Iraq funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the hauling and installing of more than 35,000 trailers and mobile homes for Hurricane Katrina victims in Mississippi. The Bechtel family has owned Bechtel since incorporating the company in 1945. Bechtel's size, its political clout, and its penchant for privacy have made it a constant subject of scrutiny for journalists and politicians since the 1930s.
