The orange square is what we call the HNTB Spark.
It’s infused every HNTB project since our founding in 1914. The Spark is inspiration, the fire of new ideas and a source of illumination. We know that the source of our Spark is our people. People who aspire to achieve extraordinary things every day. People who hold our values of integrity, technical excellence, and innovation and take personal responsibility for making success happen. We believe each person can draw strength from knowing they are a part of a culture that puts tremendous emphasis on the entire team yet highly values everyone as an individual.

What our interns had to say
“During my time with the Aviation group, I had the opportunity to learn about the innerworkings of O’Hare’s operations, future development projects, and the teamwork and collaboration between the many engineering and construction groups at O’Hare. The folks in the Aviation group were incredibly helpful in answering my questions and teaching more about the work they do and aviation industry. It has been a dream of mine to work at an airport since I was a little kid, and this internship opportunity with the Aviation group at HNTB has been nothing short of amazing.”
Anthony Phan (Aviation Intern, Chicago)
“My internship at HNTB working with the PMC Quality Team in Atlanta was truly a memorable experience, and continuously provided me with opportunities to both challenge myself and accomplish my goals. Part of what made this internship so unique was the program’s efforts to provide each intern with an ambassador, and to sponsor events that connected interns with office professionals. This focus on mentorship and networking really made me feel welcome at HNTB, and offered valuable guidance on what it’s like to work in the industry and the paths available.”
Julie Shorey (MMIP Quality Intern, ATL)
“My favorite part of my experiences from the Summer of 2019 and this summer were the summer intern Lunch and Learns. Even though I was virtual, these opportunities gave me the chance to learn about different technical disciplines throughout the company which have me a broader lens on how the company works. The company bends over backwards to ensure that interns have a strong understanding of what HNTB does in different departments and what HNTB stands for.”
Oyinlola Akinlosotu (Marketing Intern, Bellevue office)
"The opportunity to learn and grow at HNTB is an experience second to none. With a welcoming culture that values all voices and the highest standard of technical excellence in the industry, being an intern with HNTB helped me on my path to become the engineer I aspire to be."
Arik Liane (Transportation Planning Intern, San Antonio)
