The Fund provides the resources to explore ideas, emerging technologies and new approaches with the potential to dramatically improve project design, execution, quality, and safety.

To-date, Bechtel employees around the world have submitted more than 2,500 ideas.

The list of implemented ideas includes varied efforts: from use of drones, to robotics, augmented and virtual reality, new mobile applications, and new physical piping components.

The BIG Innovation Awards recognize companies and people who bring new ideas to life, and change the way we experience the world.
