We turn business and technology insights into strategic solutions for critical infrastructure industries.
Our consultants blend business, financial and technical know-how with industry experience to deliver solutions that work.
We’re proud of the fact that we’ve grown our careers in the industry. This gives us a deep understanding of our clients’ challenges — and opportunities. You face evolving regulatory demands and operational complexities at every turn. We will help you navigate those with pragmatism and tenacity.
We’re defined by our people — tenacious problem-solvers who understand the complexity of our clients’ businesses, the trends impacting their industries and the need to ground big ideas in operational realities.
We believe solutions need to work in the real world, not just exist on the drawing board. That’s why our approach is practical, human-centered, and rooted in real-world experience.
Our multidiscipline project teams are purpose-built to meet you where you are and create sustainable growth during a time of rapid change. With deep experience across physical and digital infrastructure, we turn data into action that drives smarter decision-making and maximizes value.
Our name is inspired by our legacy, when two visionaries launched Burns & McDonnell in 1898 to build stronger communities by improving infrastructure. Rooted in that legacy, we’re uniquely positioned to deliver transformative business insights coupled with leading technology capabilities.
1898 & Co. is possibilities powered by experience.
For years, multidisciplinary teams inside Burns & McDonnell have come together to support clients and engineering and construction teams with strategic insight, technological know-how and financial experience.
We provided analysis and insight. We made projects more efficient and cost-effective. We balanced innovation with pragmatism. We delivered stunning results. And our clients wanted more of it.
As our capabilities expanded, we formalized our efforts and, in 2019, we launched 1898 & Co. as a business and technology consultancy for the asset-intensive industries that Burns & McDonnell serves. Since then, we’ve built a global team of consultants that bring diverse experience and unique perspectives to solve our clients’ most complex problems. We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to show up every day and make a difference for our clients and communities.
At 1898 & Co., we come from a wide range of backgrounds, each bringing our unique perspectives and experiences to the table. But we share certain traits as well.
