Black & Veatch, a company that offers engineering and construction services with smart technology and data analytics expertise, to help selected US cities develop and deploy Smart City programmes.
It will collaborate with Envision America, which is a programme announced by the White House to advance Smart City programme planning and implementation.
“US cities are reimagining the way their energy, water, telecom and transportation systems fit together,” said Fred Ellermeier, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Black & Veatch’s Smart Integrated Infrastructure practice.
“Black & Veatch will apply expertise as cities, and the utilities that serve them, create plans to build and operate these critical infrastructure systems in a more intelligent way.”
Black & Veatch is the only Envision America partner to combine engineering and construction services with smart technology and data analytics expertise.
This unique perspective allows the company to look at individual technologies and programmes and see how they connect.
The company then acts as an integrator; working with diverse sets of partner organisations and companies to drive holistic programmes that meet Smart City goals.
