Tetra Tech’s engineering and architecture experts deliver sustainable designs that address infrastructure challenges in developing countries around the world.
Tetra Tech delivers safe and sustainable infrastructure using our Leading with Science® approach to help improve access to clean drinking water, sanitation, roads and bridges, health clinics, schools, government buildings, and reliable energy. We are a leading implementing partner for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). Leveraging our Tetra Tech Delta suite of proprietary technologies and analytical tools, we help governments and communities reemerge from instability and conflict and achieve their goals in health, education, economic growth, food security, and climate change.
We engage with stakeholders to provide capacity building and work closely with local governments and institutions to build their financial and managerial capacity for operations and maintenance to ensure long-term sustainability of donor-funded infrastructure projects.
Tetra Tech’s inclusive, data-based approach helps keep planning activities focused on developing infrastructure that has long-term viability after donor organization financing has concluded. We recognize the critical importance of supporting gender inclusion to achieve economic growth and seek to involve women—as members of local engineering teams, community stakeholders, or local government representatives—in all aspects of infrastructure project planning activities.
- Data-based project prioritization, pre-requisite determination, and phasing
- Gender equity and social inclusion
- Community and stakeholder engagement
Tetra Tech develops context-appropriate designs that meet international standards, as well as local government and donor agency standards. We incorporate locally available materials, match local labor capabilities, and require minimal operations and maintenance. Our ability to capture local, social, environmental, and economic factors in our designs helps ensure they are robust, can be implemented in each circumstance, and appropriately address the infrastructure’s impact on vulnerable populations.
