Infrastructure management specialist Jacobs has been selected by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority to provide facilities condition assessment (FCA) and enterprise asset management (EAM) services.
The company’s role will be to help the authority plan for airport enhancements to improve the overall airline and passenger experience at both Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD).
The five-year contract includes a base year with multiple one-year options and includes work to assess how buildings and infrastructure are managed, analyze capital investment needs, discover areas for improvement and prioritize critical maintenance and repair projects.
“Our long-standing relationship with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is even more important now as air travel begins to increase, and this project will prioritize keeping airports safe, efficient and reliable for travelers,” said Jacobs’ people and places solutions EVP, Ken Gilmartin. “Working collectively, we have the opportunity to improve the passenger experience and make travel easier for individuals using Washington DC’s airports.”
Jacobs says its consulting team will integrate physical asset inventories with EAM technology to save costs, improve quality and efficiency of resources, extend facility life and enhance safety, health and environment initiatives at both airports.
