Critical infrastructure keeps our nation’s economy strong and our communities safe.
Critical infrastructure refers to the systems, assets, and facilities that are essential for the functioning and well-being of our nation, like mass transit and rail, military infrastructure, energy infrastructure, and transportation. This infrastructure is vital for maintaining national security, public health and safety, and economic stability. Disruptions or failures in critical infrastructure can have significant consequences and impact the functioning of society.
In addition to water, we build, retrofit, expand, rehabilitate, operate, and maintain this critical infrastructure. Our solutions help enable smooth and efficient movement of people and goods, foster trade, address environmental sustainability, and improve the quality of life for individuals and communities.
Shimmick also possesses specialty expertise to meet the specific needs of our infrastructure customers. For example, Shimmick offers expertise, through its specialty contracting division Legacy Foundations, in deep foundation drilling, slope stabilization and shoring systems, ground improvement services, and shaft anomaly repair that is often required for large bridges, elevated transit systems, and buildings.
