Jacobs lands key role for LA airport expansion

Jacobs Engineering has secures a seven-year contract supporting a multi-billion-dollar construction programme at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

The professional services prime contract is for project and construction management to support Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) in its its Landside Access Modernization Program, Airline/Tenant Improvement Program and Capital Improvement Program at LAX.

The city of Los Angeles anticipates an increase in travel into the Southern California region resulting from the addition of new entertainment facilities, a sports stadium and a potential bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics. LAWA has therefore initiated the planning and development of more than CA$14bn (£10.8bn) in capital improvements at LAX.

Jacobs’ role includes a broad range of project and construction support services to deliver programs from definition to construction and final closeout. Services include planning; project, construction and design management; construction logistics and impact analysis; staff training and development; change management; and environmental reporting. Jacobs is supporting LAWA as the operator guides and approves major improvement plans by its airline tenants including Delta, United and Southwest Airlines.

"Jacobs has partnered with Los Angeles World Airports for the past 15 years, delivering both airside and landside projects," said Bob Pragada, Jacobs president buildings and infrastructure and industrial.
