LOS ANGELES (Sept. 7, 2021) – HNTB Corporation will host a virtual outreach networking event for all interested Los Angeles area companies with the goal of helping small- and mid-size firms access new business opportunities and build partnerships with HNTB.

The “Working with HNTB” webinar will connect firms, many of whom are owned by women, minorities, veterans and others, with HNTB’s transportation experts to learn about current and future opportunities that address transportation and infrastructure challenges in Los Angeles County. The event aims to expand the resource pool of talented professionals to help meet these challenges.

Attendees will learn about HNTB’s focus in Southern California and have a forum to exchange ideas and thoughts about upcoming projects with agencies including the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Los Angeles World Airports, City of Los Angeles, Southern California Regional Rail Authority, the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and the State of California.

HNTB plays an active role in helping small, disadvantaged, minority-owned and women-owned businesses shape transportation and infrastructure projects. More than a decade ago, HNTB formed its Partners Program to build connections and strengthen partnerships between these firms and transportation and infrastructure agencies. HNTB’s program has been successfully deployed throughout the U.S.

HNTB has partnered with nearly all agencies in Southern California over the years. The firm is currently serving as the lead architectural designer for the Automated People Mover stations and maintenance facility at Los Angeles International Airport; delivering final design and construction support for the Sixth Street Viaduct Replacement project for the City of Los Angeles; and is the principal engineer and architect for Crenshaw/LA Transit Corridor. Each of these landmark projects have resulted in small and emerging business partnerships with HNTB and project owners.
