US engineer Jacobs has won a five-year contract with a $300m price ceiling for Nasa. The “indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity” deal involves architectural and engineering work in the southeast of the US.

Jacobs will provide services such as modernisation, rehabilitation, system implementation and ground support systems at Nasa sites including Kennedy Space Centre in Florida and the Johnson Space Centre in Texas. The work will be carried out as part of Nasa’s Southeast Region Architect and Engineering programme.

In 2016, Jacobs won a $250m Nasa contract to operate and maintain the Ames Research Centre in California, testing equipment, IT systems and offering administration services.

Tim Byers, Jacobs Federal & Environmental Solution’s general manager, said : “This opportunity draws upon Jacobs’ multidisciplinary experience to deliver sustainable, resilient and innovative solutions supporting critical requirements to Nasa’s mission worldwide.

“With our 60-plus-year relationship with Nasa, we continue to provide a single source of credentialed professionals and comprehensive architecture and engineering services to support numerous ongoing projects.”
