Jacobs Engineering wins contract for major LAX developments

Jacobs Engineering Group has been awarded a seven-year contract for project and construction management services to support the multi-billion dollar Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) and other key upgrades at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

In addition to LAMP, the contract specifically covers the Airline/Tenant Improvement Program and Capital Improvement Program at LAX being carried out by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).

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.

In anticipation of this growth, and with the intent of improving the overall guest experience, LAWA has initiated the planning and development of more than $14 billion in capital improvements at LAX.

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 at LAX 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 for buildings and ifrastructure and industrial. 

"Around the world, we’ve worked in collaborative roles for several major terminal and runway expansion projects and we look forward to contributing our proven expertise to help implement this program and solidify LAX as one of the great airports of the world."

Jacobs’ services worldwide range from strategic planning and financial consulting to planning, design, programme, construction and asset management.
