Jacobs Receives Excellence Awards From U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today that two of its recent acquisitions were honored with 2012 Chief of Engineers Awards of Excellence from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).

In the environmental engineering category, Jacobs (formerly Damon S. Williams Associates [DSWA]) won for the Tres Rios Environmental Restoration Project in Salt River, Ariz., and in the design category, KlingStubbins (now Jacobs) was an award recipient for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Campus East Project in Springfield, Va.

The Tres Rios Environmental Restoration Project is a water reclamation and reuse project funded by USACE and the City of Phoenix Water Services Department. The project treats municipal wastewater while simultaneously enabling large scale habitat restoration and flood control, and in addition creates a space for public recreation and environmental education. DSWA (now Jacobs) served as design and construction engineer on the project, which entailed moving over three million cubic yards of material around the 580 acre site to create a wetland system providing over 450 acres of diverse aquatic and riparian habitat.

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Campus East Project consolidated six Washington area sites to one campus in the Fort Belvoir area in Springfield, Va.; and includes a main office building, technology center, and central utilities plant. KlingStubbins (now Jacobs) and RTKL Associates, Inc., its joint venture partner on the project, successfully designed the facility to meet a cultural transformation mandate and strict requirements for sustainability, reliability, flexibility and expandability – all constrained by stringent security criteria.

Jacobs President and Chief Executive Officer Craig Martin stated, “We are pleased that in each of these projects, the client’s needs were given priority and the results were outstanding. Having the projects receive recognition beyond that from the Army Corps of Engineers is a great honor.”
