LAWA appoints Jacobs Engineering for seven-year project and construction management

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has awarded Jacobs Engineering Group a seven-year professional services contract for project and construction management.

Jacobs will support Los Angeles International’s Airport’s (LAX) landside access modernization program, airline and tenant improvement program, and capital improvement program. Its role will 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 Air Lines, United Airlines and Southwest Airlines.

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

“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.”

Los Angeles anticipates an increase in travel into the Southern California region due to new entertainment facilities, a new 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 US$14bn in capital improvements at LAX.
