Sensing an opportunity in the U.S. energy transition to zero-carbon resources, global testing and inspection provider Bureau Veritas is acquiring a renewable energy project construction management firm based in state capital of utility-scale wind.
The acquisition of Dallas-based Bradley Construction Management puts Bureau Veritas at the forefront of the renewable energy sector, the company said. Bradley provides on-site construction management for independent power producers in the utility-scale clean energy sector including wind, solar and storage.

“This partnership enables us to further position Bureau Veritas as a leading provider of independent services to developers and owners in the renewable energy sector,” Natalia Shurman, CEO of Bureau Veritas North America, said in a statement. “We look forward to realizing the full benefits of our shared vision to advance a sustainable future and shape the world of trust.”
Bradley Construction Management was established in 2013. It has overseen wind, solar and storage projects in about one dozen states, including a host of utility-scale wind farms in west Texas.
The firm has managed and consulted on construction of more than 10 GW of clean energy capacity since its founding.
“Today marks an exciting new chapter for Bradley Construction Management,” Mark Bradley, company president, said. “Bureau Veritas’ global footprint and market leadership in the (testing, inspection and certification) industry will allow us to deliver a broader array of services to our existing customers and accelerate our diversification into new services and segments, including the burgeoning offshore wind market. This is an ideal fit for Bradley Construction Management, our employees and our clients.”
Bradley started the company after a 29-year career in general construction.
Bureau Veritas is a 93-year-old company with 75,000 employees globally.
