Jacobs to continue advising Metrolinx for next five years

Ontario Construction News staff writer

Jacobs has been awarded the Strategic Advisory and Commercial Management Services Contract (SACMS) with Metrolinx’s Capital Projects Group for another five years.

As a consultant with Metrolinx since 2010 – including providing owner’s engineer and program management services for three new light rail transit lines and maintenance facilities – this new contract establishes a framework of vendor firms that Metrolinx will use for future work on a range of services related to capital projects.

Jacobs will provide strategic advisory, commercial & claims management, project management and other delivery support.

“As we continue our work with Metrolinx, we’ll integrate and leverage our local and international resources to meet their evolving needs,” Jacobs vice-president and program director, major mrograms Neil Walker said in a statement. “With our global program management experience including delivering U.K.’s Crossrail and Grand Central Madison in New York City, we’re well-positioned to support Metrolinx transformative projects as they pioneer progressive contracting and delivery models and prepare for introducing reliable new rail services.

“Our support of Metrolinx will bring these vital projects into use and pioneer alternative forms of project delivery in the Canadian transportation market.”
