Explore our sampling of projects then let us know how we can help you.
With positions at every level, openings in multiple disciplines, expertise in a range of markets and offices around the globe, we create an environment where you can learn, grow and thrive.
...we told you that sea levels are rising at their fastest rate in 2,000 years and cyber-attacks are on the rise, rising by nearly 40 percent and doubling in cost? That by 2020, 40 billion objects will be connected to the Internet? That by 2050, 70 percent of the world's population will live in cities and along the U.S. coastline, the average risk of a 100-year flood will increase 40-fold?
It’s time to think differently about the future — about how we prepare for and respond to natural, societal and economic risks. Whatever uncertainties we face, we have greater opportunities today to rise up and emerge stronger — and reclaim the promise the future holds for all of us: to thrive in a more connected, sustainable world. Our resilient future begins here, thinking beyond one-dimensional solutions to improve social, environmental and economic resiliency of communities, organizations and nations around the world.
What if we showed you how the world’s largest resiliency program is protecting £275 billion worth of property and livelihoods of 1.3 million people along the Thames Estuary system in England? How a cooperative engagement program is improving biosafety, biosecurity and biosurveillance capabilities and reducing infectious disease threats in West Africa. And what if we showed you how the island of Kiribati is reclaiming 300 hectares, or the equivalent of about 300 American football fields, of swampy inhabitable land and transforming it into an urban development resilient to predicted 2200 ocean levels?
We’re providing comprehensive infrastructure, technology and intelligence solutions to help communities prepare, adapt, mitigate and recover when facing climate, cybersecurity and biosecurity-related risks – thinking differently about the future, planning beyond today to build resilience, and deliver the promise of more. With offices worldwide and the capability to mobilize our workforce around the globe, Jacobs is leading resiliency efforts in a diverse portfolio of projects and locations, including:
- Leading development of smart, sustainable infrastructure and commercial facilities in the world’s major cities – from Sydney to San Francisco – mitigating effects of population growth and climate extremes, and promoting diverse and efficient energy solutions to reduce carbon impacts.
- Offering highly integrated, enterprise-scale cyber solutions spanning the cybersecurity lifecycle.
- Helping manage, monitor and reduce threats from biological warfare materials and indigenous diseases; and providing human and animal health surveillance training and establishing cooperative biological research projects.
