At Jacobs, we start with “what if” to push the limits of what’s possible, using our technical expertise to turn ideas into reality.

In the U.K., Jacobs has developed a reputation for excellence in quality, performance, innovation, value for money and safety on large and technically challenging projects.

Explore some of the projects we're working on:

  • Tunnel Boring Machine at Carnwath Road, Fulham
    Thames Tideway Tunnel

    Jacobs has been the program manager for the Thames Tideway Tunnel since 2008, building on our record of delivering major urban wastewater treatment projects globally. The Thames Tideway Tunnel is the kind of highly complex program that Jacobs enjoys tackling; with multi-site delivery and significant challenges demanding innovation and better ways of working to achieve the best outcomes.

    The Elizabeth Line

    Over two decades, we’ve supported Crossrail to deliver the Elizabeth line, a complex and significant transport solution in London, U.K., that paves the way for social, environmental and economic opportunities of national significance that will last generations. The program delivery also creates an immense learning legacy that will benefit future major infrastructure development and their communities globally.

  • Construction work at Hinkley Point C
    Hinkley Point C

    The first new nuclear power station to be built in the U.K. in over 20 years, EDF’s Hinkley Point C in Somerset is expected to meet approximately 7% of the U.K.’s electricity needs and make a major contribution to the U.K.’s ambition to reduce carbon emissions. Jacobs is supporting EDF with wide-ranging professional technical and project management services. Our UKAS-accredited Inspection Validation Center is the project’s sole supplier for independent verification of ultrasound inspections on safety critical components.

  • London Olympic Games stadium
    London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games

    CLM, a consortium of CH2M (now Jacobs), Laing O’Rourke and Mace, was appointed by the Olympic Delivery Authority to deliver the Olympic Park and associated infrastructure for London 2012. We helped to deliver a six-year, $15 billion program to design and build 30 sustainable venues and scalable infrastructure. To top it off, the project was completed a year ahead of schedule and 10% below budget. Key to its long-term success is the impact of wider regeneration of the area and the creation of new opportunities for communities.
