Program Management

Who We Are is What Sets Us Apart

In the world of infrastructure programs, today's potential vulnerabilities are often tomorrow's unavoidable realities; yesterday's "what-if" can become today's "to-do". Climate change, population growth and water and energy shortages, combined with the promise of automation and artificial intelligence, virtually guarantee that how we approach problems will determine the likelihood of our success in solving them.

Resilience and innovation are prerequisites for protecting our world and preparing us for what comes next. Large programmatic infrastructure efforts require a team of visionary leaders and strategic managers, and this is why our program management practice is exceptional: We are both. Together with our clients and teaming partners, we envision, execute, and forge new frontiers using a blend of traditional and emerging solutions. 

Our public and private sector clients provide all manner of infrastructure services across the globe. Despite the varied mission and methods, common goals remain. Our program management approach aims to help our clients:

  • Improve the human condition
  • Make timely, informed decisions
  • Provide reliable service as good stewards of their communities
  • Be accountable to stakeholders, executive leadership, and customers

Program Management at HDR is DIfferent. Here's Why.

Many of our clients need partners for life; others, just until the storm passes. Some have deep resources and need only specialized support, while others face unprecedented challenges requiring all manner of aid. We'll meet you wherever you are.
