Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today that it was honored by the Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) with an Award of Excellence in Institutional Architecture for the design of the Mission Training Complex at the U.S. Army’s Fort Bragg located in North Carolina.
Jacobs provided full-service architecture and engineering, including construction administration, for the new 148,000-square foot Mission Training Complex. The $28 million facility received LEED® Gold certification.

It is a privilege to have designed this award-winning facility in support of our client’s goals to continue providing excellent training to members of the U.S. Army.”Jacobs is one of the world's largest and most diverse providers of technical, professional, and construction services.
