SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- CH2M HILL, a global full-service engineering, construction and operations firm, announced today that it plans to add more than 1,000 jobs in California over the next five years, bringing its total California staff to more than 2,500 by 2012.

"Our investment in California will help equip us to deliver the infrastructure improvements the state and its growing communities approved in the November election," said Ralph Peterson, CH2M HILL Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. "We are proud to grow our business in California, which will not only help make a sustainable future, but will build a technology platform in California that can bring sustainable solutions to infrastructure needs around the world."

As California's marketplace is such a big factor in CH2M HILL's continued success, its Board of Directors meeting was held in Sacramento on August 9th and 10th. The Board represents the entire CH2M HILL global enterprise of 19,000 employees, with annual revenues of $4.5 billion.

In addition to a significant investment in people, CH2M HILL is also expanding its current offices in California's urban and rural areas. The firm will add a new office in the Fresno area within a year, bringing the total number of California offices to twelve. "California is a rapidly growing state, with projections that the population will exceed 45 million by 2020," Peterson said. "Much of the infrastructure needed to support this rise in population is inadequate and Governor Schwarzenegger's vision, determination, and leadership has created an atmosphere that supports an investment in people and new offices within the state."

CH2M HILL has been providing sustainable solutions to communities in California since 1946. Our full-service offices have been members of their business communities in California for over 60 years, who provide engineering and design services for water, transportation, energy, industrial facilities, and environmental projects throughout the state, from Northern California, through the Central Valley, to greater Southern California and all parts in between.

CH2M HILL is an employee-owned, global leader in engineering, construction and operations for public and private clients. With $4.5 billion in revenue, CH2M HILL is an industry-leading program management, construction management and design firm, as ranked by Engineering News-Record (2007). The firm has long been recognized as a most-admired company and leading employer by business media and professional associations worldwide. CH2M HILL has more than 19,000 employees in regional offices around the world.
