Jacobs Associates News Release
- Jacobs Associates announces formation of a business division dedicated to its construction management (CM) practice - Jacobs Associates Construction Managers (JACM). The change will allow the firm to deliver CM services more efficiently and optimize client access to its best resources.
- Through the new division Jacobs Associates will continue to focus on providing specialized design engineering and consulting services for heavy civil and underground construction projects.

- This is a natural extension of our firm's mission to provide a complete solution to all phases of a project, from planning through design and construction," said the director of JACM, Rafael Castro, a Principal with Jacobs Associates, and currently serving as project manager for DC Water's Clean Rivers Project in Washington DC.
- Since making announcement of the reorganization the new division has moved quickly to make the first in what it says will be a series of strategic hires to expand the CM leadership team. Judy Cochran has been brought in from King County Wastewater Treatment Division in Seattle as a Lead Associate, while John Kaplin joins the new team as a Senior Associate in the Boston office.
- "Our creation of a construction management division with visible leadership will help us respond much more effectively to what our clients in several markets seek," said Jacobs Associates President Dan Adams. "The structure of a dedicated division will allow streamlined communications with clients and will optimize our ability to staff CM assignments with specialized personnel," he added.
