Architecture & interiors

The right balance in architecture and interior design.

Architecture and interior design is the combination of our clients’ needs and values, art and technology, community and place – all coming together creatively to build environments that enrich people’s lives and elevate the human spirit.  

To do this, Jacobs focuses on promoting architectural design excellence rather than a signature style, because our design response for each project arises out of the specifics of its site, program, and physical and cultural context. 

Our approach is thoughtful and collaborative; each design and construction stakeholder plays an important role in helping us derive the right the solution to delight our clients. 

In designing interiors Jacobs aims to inspire and reflect our clients’ identities. We familiarize ourselves with their needs, histories, brand identities, work styles, and management philosophies to balance artistic expression with functional, pragmatic considerations. 

Jacobs integrates all of our services to create facilities that meet clients' needs both now and in the future. We put all our talents, ideas and experiences toward striking the right balance between achieving unequaled building solutions and meeting our clients’ business needs, goals, and ultimate visions.

Construction with a capital C.

Jacobs is one of the largest construction companies in the world.

As a full service, fully integrated firm, Jacobs designs, engineers, and constructs our clients’ projects from beginning to end with our own expert and caring hands. As a major employer of field services personnel and skilled craft, we wear hardhats, operate cranes, and weld pipe. We do all this and more globally; touching numerous industries, geographies and end markets with the world-class facilities we build and maintain for our clients.

In addition to construction management and project management, Jacobs provides a complete range of field construction services, including modular construction and fabrication, for clients in both the public and private sectors.

Our integrated work processes and procedures allow us to identify unique opportunities to add value, driving innovation and efficiency. We prefer to integrate our construction expertise with our design planning as early as possible in the life of a project. That way, our construction plan is the context within which we design and procure; resulting in reduced schedule and costs.

Jacobs has experience meeting aggressive and complex schedules, and we offer a number of alternative delivery processes for public works and civil infrastructure projects.

In everything we build for our clients around the world, safety is our number one priority.

Information technology

We’ve got IT covered for you.

For most of our clients, information technology management and infrastructure are a key part of operations, supporting their core business.  So that they can focus on their business mission, Jacobs provides a full, life-cycle suite of business technology system design, engineering, procurement, installation, operations and maintenance services, both integrated with other project design services, or as standalone services.

Jacobs designs, builds, and operates large IT data centers, networks, and systems, as well as support our clients’ desktop operations, data transport, data storage, cloud solutions, and cybersecurity.  We offer comprehensive design visualization services, including GIS and BIM tools. We are a leading IT partner with the defense industry and armed services, including aircraft and weapons system research and testing, software development, data management, and defense program IT support.

We bring a unique advantage to our clients. Jacobs has partner agreements with top-tier IT companies, resellers and distributors.  With direct access to industry leaders, we are made aware of emerging technologies to provide the latest solutions to IT challenges.  Direct reseller agreements with our vendor partners enable us to offer extremely competitive pricing on hardware and software, as well as take advantage of their expertise in system design and implementation. View our IT partner, reseller, and distributor fact sheet.

Because the cost of an IT system over its useful lifetime is much more than just the initial acquisition of hardware and software, we recommend a lifecycle management approach, in which we provide a complete package with predicable costs under a managed services agreement.  With a technology lifecycle contract, Jacobs provides development and engineering, hardware, software, support services, maintenance, updates and upgrades through the full life cycle of the system. By taking responsibility for the effective and successful delivery of the IT system over the contract period, we allow our customers to focus on their core business.
