Jacobs contracted for Taxiway Zulu, Terminal 2 aprons project in Australia

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE: JEC) said it received a contract to provide engineering services for a major airside design program at Melbourne Airport in Australia.

Company officials did not disclose the contract value.

Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is delivering the earthworks, civil infrastructure, pavement, master grading and drainage design for the schematic and detailed design phases of the Taxiway Zulu and Terminal 2 Aprons Project, which involves the provision of a series of new taxiway, taxi lane and apron infrastructure required to facilitate future Terminal 2 pier expansion and associated changes to aircraft configuration.

The Taxiway Zulu and Terminal 2 Apron scope was previously covered by two separate projects during the recently completed feasibility design phase, for which Jacobs completed the Taxiway Zulu program and another international design consultant the Terminal 2 Apron component. Melbourne Airport has now chosen to bring the two projects together under one contract for feasibility and detailed design and has selected Jacobs to undertake the consolidated scope.

Jacobs is one of the world´s largest and most diverse providers of technical professional and construction services.
