THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- March 28, 2013

CB&I (NYSE: CBI) hosted an Investor Day in New York today. During the meeting,
CB&I's management team demonstrated the company's confidence in its end
markets as well as its ability to capture new business and help clients meet
the growing demand for energy infrastructure.

In his opening remarks, CB&I President and Chief Executive Officer Philip K.
Asherman stated, "We are excited to have this opportunity to introduce our
company’s newest management team members. Their strong leadership and proven
technical skills will greatly contribute to our continued focus of meeting and
exceeding our clients’ expectations and creating value for our shareholders.
You will hear from the collective talent of our four operating groups that
provide us the structure to scale our business model, which is unique in our
industry by combining like businesses while capitalizing on each group’s
unique resource capability and commercial characteristics."

Investors and analysts then heard from each of CB&I’s four operating groups,
which the company announced after completing its acquisition of Shaw in
February. CB&I’s operating groups are:

  *Technology, which provides licensed process technologies, catalysts,
    specialized equipment and engineered products for use in petrochemical
    facilities, oil refineries and gas processing plants. This group also
    offers process planning and project development services, as well as a
    comprehensive program of aftermarket support.
  *Engineering, Construction and Maintenance, which provides engineering,
    procurement, fabrication and construction of major energy infrastructure
    facilities, as well as comprehensive and integrated maintenance services.
  *Fabrication Services, which provides piping solutions and storage tanks
    and vessels for the oil and gas, water and wastewater, mining and power
    generation industries.
  *Government Solutions, which leads large, high-profile programs and
    projects, including design-build infrastructure projects, for federal,
    state and local governments. This group also provides full-scale
    environmental services for government and private sector clients,
    including remediation and restoration of contaminated sites, emergency
    response and disaster recovery.

During the Investor Day, CB&I also provided its 2013 combined guidance for the
first time since closing the Shaw acquisition.
