New York-listed engineering giant Jacobs has been selected by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority to provide expert oversight on its airports’ facilities and asset management.
This will help the authority plan airport enhancements at Ronald Reagan Washington National and Washington Dulles International airports.
The five-year contract includes a base year with multiple one-year options and includes work to assess how buildings and infrastructure are managed, analyse capital investment needs, discover areas for improvement and prioritise 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 executive vice president, Ken Gilmartin. "Working collectively, we have the opportunity to improve the passenger experience and make travel easier for individuals using Washington, DC’s airports."
