Jacobs recently participated as a conference partner of the London Infrastructure Summit 2017, an event that brought together key industry players to explore the main issues that infrastructure policy and delivery are facing in London. As well as being an exhibitor, Jacobs actively contributed to the discussions and debates, showcasing our approach of establishing long-term relationships with our clients to help them reach their goals, while being innovative, environmentally sensitive and community considerate when delivering crucial infrastructure projects.
Stephen Rutherford, Jacobs Head of Strategic Consultancy Buildings and Infrastructure for the UK, was one of the speakers at the session dedicated to the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy, which sets out policies and proposals to reshape the transport in London over the next 25 years. Rutherford explained: “With our presence here at the London Infrastructure Summit, we want to provide the city with our expertise and value through cost-effective solutions and services ranging from transportation planning, to design and engineering, supported with innovative financing strategies.”
