Ranked in the Top 30 by U.S. News & World Report both for places to live and to retire, Houston, Texas’ economy is strong, culture is diverse and quality of life is spectacular.
Houston is a major hub of the oil and gas industries, an aerospace and science innovator and a growing center for manufacturing and health care, with the largest medical complex in the world, Texas Medical Center. Attracting new visitors and residents from across the country and around the world, it’s also one of the top 25 major U.S. cities for convention, conference and seminar travelers and home to one of the nation's 10th largest convention centers.
With more than 6.7 million residents in the metro area and its economic growth potential topping the charts, life in Space City’s never been more prosperous – and Jacobs is partnering across the city to deliver even more for future generations.
