Three ACEC National Excellence Awards for Jacobs

Jacobs Engineering Group won three awards at the 2014 American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Engineering Excellence Awards.
ACEC’s annual Engineering Excellence Awards recognise preeminent engineering achievements from throughout the world, using criteria such as uniqueness and originality, complexity, and technical, economic and social value. Jacobs received Honor Awards for its work on two projects: The Chicago Department of Aviation’s Runway 10C-28C and Associated Taxiways project at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois; and Texas A&M University’s superior-efficiency power plant upgrade at its campus in College Station, Texas. Jacobs also won a National Recognition award for the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Hwy 169/I-494 Interchange Reconstruction Project in Hennepin County, Minn.
For the project at O’Hare International Airport, Jacobs was part of a joint venture team that included AECOM, Milhouse Engineering & Construction, and Delta Engineering Group. At Texas A&M University, Jacobs provided full-service design of the campus’ cogeneration plant, including combined heat and power (CHP) and electrical system design, construction administration, and commissioning. The Hwy 169/I-494 Interchange Reconstruction Project in Hennepin County, Minnesota included a new interchange, freeway and local road system to replace one of the most congested interchanges in the region. The project was also selected for the ACEC Minnesota Chapter’s Grand Conceptor Award, the chapter’s highest honour.
