August 17, 2010

PASADENA, Calif., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE: JEC) announced today that it received an award from Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) to provide on-call professional construction support services for various airport and capital improvement projects at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), LA/Ontario International Airport (ONT) and Van Nuys Airport (VNY).

The contract has a maximum value of $25 million.

LAWA’s staff currently manages, programs, plans, designs and supervises the construction of a variety of projects at LAX, LA/ONT and VNY.

Assignments will be executed on a cost plus fixed fee task order basis.

The Capital Improvement Program for Fiscal Years running through 2013 includes approximately 30 projects and programs with estimated construction costs that range from $350,000 to $700 million, having construction commencement dates through December 2011.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Tom McDuffie stated, “We will help LAWA continue to provide best-in-class services and facilities for its passengers, tenants and airlines while we support the preservation of one of the region’s main economic engines.”

Jacobs is one of the world’s largest and most diverse providers of technical, professional, and construction services.
