Jacobs to Provide Engineering Support at USAF Bases in Japan; Tim Byers Quoted

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Jacobs (NYSE: J) a prime spot on an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to perform architecture and engineering services at three military bases in Japan.

The company said Tuesday it will support the Yokota and Misawa air bases and Camp Zama for the project, which is under a potential $99 million multi-award contract.

Jacobs will provide design, construction, programming, facility planning, inspection and other professional support over a five-year base period. Its work could extend via an option period of two years. 

It intends to team up with Japanese subconsultants to ensure compliance with local regulations on topographical surveying, sub-surface investigations and hazardous materials testing and handling.
