Tailored solutions for critical industries

Innovative ways to build tomorrow’s infrastructure

Developing and delivering the world’s critical energy and infrastructure solutions requires a creative, collaborative approach. The Michels Family of Companies engages the right combination of diversified services to meet evolving needs of industries we serve.

Serving critical industries allows us to grow as individuals, companies and a collective team. We Do That … & More.

Building Projects and Partnerships

We are proud to provide government agencies with comprehensive services and alternative delivery options, including design-build, progressive design-build, and construction management at-risk. Whether rehabilitating a marsh or shoreline, working on or under a levee, or delivering a massive freeway interstate, we are guided by our core values and fueled by a desire to provide safe, creative ways to deliver critical projects.

Building the World’s Energy Backbone

The Michels Family of Companies is strategically assembled to ensure systems and networks are ready to serve future generations, whether you need a complete EPC or specialized solution. Our teams have built thousands of miles of transmission lines, added capacity to substations and facilities, installed utility lines under waterbodies and other sensitive areas, and connected offshore projects to the national grid. We have the experience to solve challenges, resources to work anywhere, and ingenuity to figure out how to do what seems impossible.

Prepared for Decarbonization

The Michels Family of Companies has decades of experience performing work for future-focused energy transition programs. Our expertise in overhead and underground transmission systems coupled with our ability to develop safe, effective trenchless and pipeline facility solutions allows our customers to meet the world’s evolving energy needs.

Delivering efficient, reliable solutions

Our design-build capabilities ensure cost-effective, engineered solutions for even the most complex deep foundations projects. As a deep foundations contractor, we work with customers and use sophisticated testing to meet a construction project’s necessary bearing capacity and settlement tolerances.

Working on, in and Around Water

Marine environment construction is necessary to support energy and infrastructure projects. Performing that work safely, with an environmental conscience, is a choice Michels makes again and again. We approach each project with sophisticated equipment, trained crews and dedication to our core value of environmental protection. Our marine services include dredging, diving and surveying as well as marine construction, shoreline restoration, and trenchless crossings beneath waterways.

Small Details Drive Big Results

One of the largest transportation contractors in the United States, we understand complex projects. Our teams deliver safe, efficient transportation-related projects, from bridge foundations and runway paving to custom aggregate crushing and mass transit tunnels.

Conveying Our Largest Resource

Every human, animal, and plant needs water to survive. We support our customers’ mission to deliver clean water and convey and treat wastewater. We build new and rehabilitate existing water systems using conventional and trenchless techniques. We use trenchless rehabilitation techniques for potable water and sewer lines. Our conventional and trenchless methods are effective for building water mains, ocean outfalls, and more.
