US engineer Jacobs has opened a research centre in Denmark to help meet demand for specialised construction skills in the life sciences, advanced manufacturing and infrastructure sectors.

Jacobs plans to recruit 100 people for this “innovation hub” over the next three years. The aim is to help clients plan, develop, finance, design, construct, maintain and operate advanced facilities and infrastructure.

Jacobs is working with international biopharma companies on the best way to build large-scale pharmaceutical plants. Other of the company’s clients who are likely to benefit from the hub clients include the Copenhagen Metro, the Ministry of Health and Danish airspace company Naviair.

Kate Kenny, Jacobs’ senior vice president, said: “We are committed to supporting industry and the broader economy in Denmark by collaborating with local engineering, architecture and consultancy firms to deliver large-scale projects with outcomes that benefit communities and drive growth for our clients in the region.”
