Weitz participated in building two landmark, petrochemical projects in the United States – the first world-scale fertilizer plant built in the U.S. since the late 1980s and the largest methanol plant in North America.
Our team’s experience includes olefins projects such as Ethylene Oxide/Ethylene Glycol (EO/EG), PDH and Polyethylene, as well as the specialty gas market.

Weitz is involved in three significant design-build aviation projects in the U.S. – the new terminal at Kansas City International, PHX Sky Train guideway extension in Phoenix and SFO Superbay Group I Aircraft Hangar in San Francisco.
“The combined cycle, gas-fired New Capital Power Plant in Cairo, Egypt, has 8 gas turbines, 4 steam turbines and 12 generators. It required 235,431 cubic yards of concrete; 2,460,630 yards of cable; 150,000 tons of equipment; and 20,000 tons of steel.”
