Jacobs Wins Construction Management Association of America’s Project of the Year

Jacobs has been awarded Project of the Year by the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) at their National Conference & Trade Show in Washington, DC last month. The United States Courthouse in Los Angeles, CA, is the new LEED Platinum certified “glass cube” structure, replacing a notable but dated courthouse a few blocks away that had been used since 1940.

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) leveraged Jacobs’ extensive construction management experience in building federal courthouses to oversee the $343-million project. Jacobs was hands-on and fully involved from the creation of the design RFP documents through commissioning and made innovative contributions throughout the construction process. 

With 24 courtrooms, and chambers for 32 judges on 10 floors, this 633,000 square-foot facility is home to the U.S. District Court, Central District of California, U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Attorneys’ Office, Federal Public Defender and GSA.
