Bechtel has set up an Africa regional office in Kenya to facilitate the development of projects throughout the continent.
Although the company has worked for more than 70 years on hundreds of projects across Africa, the Kenyan office is the company’s first permanent presence in the continent.
“Our new office in Nairobi presents an opportunity to focus on building stronger relationships with our customers and their communities,” said Bechtel’s region president for Africa, Andrew Patterson. “We are excited about creating a permanent presence in Africa to support our customers in delivering large infrastructure, oil and gas and mining projects,” he added. Patterson will be based in Nairobi.
