DENVER, CO, Jan. 31, 2014 -- On Wednesday, Jan. 29, CH2M HILL, a consulting, design, construction, and operations firm, announced that it will align its business to five key markets, including water and wastewater, and six core regions in order to more effectively serve the infrastructure needs of its clients around the world. 

CH2M HILL's President and CEO Jacqueline Hinman commented that this particular endeavor is focused on "accelerated growth and delivery excellence" -- a goal to be reflected in the water and wastewater sector. Further, the firm's water market, a top-5 global leader as ranked by Engineering News –Record (ENR) in government and industrial water supply, water treatment and desalination, sewer, and wastewater treatment, is led by Greg McIntyre.

Along with an emphasis on water and wastewater infrastructure, the program will also spotlight energy, environment & nuclear, facilities & urban environments, and transportation.

The energy market, led by Mike Szomjassy, combines the firm's Energy & Chemicals and Power business groups to span the energy value chain. Further, the environment & nuclear market, led by Chris Shea, combines the firm's No.1 ENR-ranked environmental practice with its global nuclear decommissioning and decontamination business.

The facilities & urban environments market, led by Bob Bailey, combines the firm's industrial & advanced technology, government facilities & infrastructure, and urban programs groups to more holistically serve public and private clients. Further, the top-5 ENR globally-ranked transportation market, led by Terry Ruhl, spans the aviation, bridges, highways, marine and port facilities, and mass transit and rail sectors.
