Power for Today and Tomorrow
Bureau Veritas Power provides comprehensive construction management, project management and technical advisory services to the utility-scale renewable-energy markets, including the wind, solar, battery-energy storage and transmission sectors. Our subject matter experts are advocates for your project through its entire lifecycle, ensuring success through the owner’s engineering, preconstruction and on-site owner’s representation stages. 

Bureau Veritas (BV) began providing code compliance services to the California Energy Commission in 2011. The group played a pivotal role in shepherding more than 35 utility-scale renewable generation projects to successful completion. Additionally the group supported more than 10 transmission and distribution projects across the state.

Ten years later, in April 2021, Bureau Veritas significantly expanded its renewable-energy service capabilities with the acquisition of Dallas-based Bradley Construction Management. Bradley (now Bureau Veritas) founded in 2013, has managed and consulted on the construction of more than 18,000 MW of renewable-energy and transmission projects across the entire U.S. Bureau Veritas continues to grow its completed project portfolio and geographic reach, while strengthening its position as the market leader in the management of utility-scale projects. 

Bureau Veritas has successfully managed and consulted on the construction of more than 90 solar, battery storage, wind and transmission projects throughout the United States. The following map is a visual representation of our footprint across North America.
