DALLAS, Oct. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (NYSE:JEC) was awarded a contract to develop the program requirements and standards that will transform Tyndall Air Force Base (AFB) into a visionary Installation of the Future (IotF). Jacobs is contracted as a subconsultant to KBR to support and advance the redevelopment of Tyndall Air Force Base. The objectives of reconstruction are to restore the full operational capability of the installation to serve as the prototype for future IotF's.
Tyndall AFB located 12 miles east of Panama City, Florida, sustained a direct hit from Category 5 Hurricane Michael, one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the U.S. in more than 25 years. The devastating storm inflicted immeasurable, lasting damage across the region and resulted in significant damage and destruction across the installation.
"We view the post-disaster environment not only as a catalyst to restoring operational capability for the base and its missions, but also to help create a prototypical and definitional future installation with a focus on resiliency and sustainability," said Jacobs Buildings, Infrastructure and Advanced Facilities Senior Vice President for U.S. Federal Solutions Pankaj Duggal. "The key definitional solutions include robust cybersecurity, SMART ownership systems, high performance buildings, resilient and redundant energy systems, high wind load structural solutions and resilient utility systems."
At Tyndall AFB, Jacobs has transitioned the master planning effort into zone development plans and completed 42 program requirements packages which comprise the $2.8 billion Military Construction Program funding request to the U.S. Congress. Additionally, Jacobs is tasked with updating the installation's facility standards to be consistent with IotF requirements, developing a master program schedule, conducting analysis for delivery methods and preparing reoccurring risk and opportunity planning in support of the Project Management Office's efforts.
Jacobs has been a long-term partner with the Department of Defense, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and local communities helping them recover from natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and flooding.
Jacobs rapidly established emergency program management offices and assembled teams to provide immediate disaster response and recovery assistance, deploying field teams as large as 300 people to assist FEMA last year with emergency protective measures, damage assessment, debris removal and restoration of public facilities, including roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, water treatment and individual homes.
Jacobs leads the global professional services sector providing solutions for a more connected, sustainable world. With approximately $12 billion in revenue and a talent force of more than 50,000, Jacobs provides a full spectrum of services including scientific, technical, professional and construction- and program-management for business, industrial, commercial, government and infrastructure sectors.
