In addition to sharing many of the same customers, these businesses share their approach of early and continuous involvement to deliver the most optimal solution to meet the customer's objectives through early planning and scope definition, advanced technologies and project lifetime support. This focus allows early customer engagement and continuity through to full project delivery. Engineering & Construction (E&C) is KBR's project delivery business.
