Founded in 1889 in Chicago, Illinois, USA, as Chicago Bridge & Iron Company, we were initially involved in bridge design and construction, then turned our focus to bulk liquid storage in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, coinciding with the western expansion of railroads across the United States and the discovery of oil in the U.S. Southwest. CB&I quickly became known for our excellent design engineering and field construction of elevated water storage tanks, aboveground tanks for storage of petroleum and refined products, refinery process vessels and other steel plate structures.


Today's CB&I

In late 2000, CB&I embarked on a series of acquisitions that have dramatically expanded our capabilities and services. With our most recent acquisition of The Shaw Group in February 2013, we have created one of the world’s largest engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies focused on the global energy industry.

The resultant company of approximately 54,000 employees can provide clients with a total solutions package across the entire energy spectrum, from proprietary technology and related catalysts to front end engineering and design (FEED), EPC and construction management services, commissioning and aftermarket support. In addition, CB&I provides environmental services for government and commercial clients worldwide. And we design and construct infrastructure and civil works projects for government and private-sector clients.

We have the global experience and local expertise to deliver superior results, even in the most challenging environments.

Consistent Growth

Founded in 1889, today’s CB&I is consistently ranked among the largest companies in the Engineering News-Record list of Top 400 Contractors, yet we are still small enough for our employees to make an impact on the organization.

Complete Supply Chain Solution

CB&I’s integrated business model offers a wide variety of solutions for all the markets in which the company operates. A diverse array of capabilities gives CB&I the flexibility to work on a project at any point – conceptual studies, technology selection, front-end engineering design (FEED), design, fabrication, construction, operations and maintenance, decommissioning – or for the entire life cycle of the project.

Because we have capabilities in all facets of project delivery, our employees have a wide range of career opportunities, not only in Operations and Engineering, but in support functions such as Sales, Human Resources, Accounting and IT.
