Jacobs Engineering awarded contract to work at Tyndall Air Force Base
Jacobs was awarded a contract to develop the program requirements and standards that will transform Tyndall Air Force Base, or AFB, into a visionary Installation of the Future, or IotF. Jacobs is contracted as a subconsultant to KBR to support and advance the redevelopment of Tyndall Air Force Base. The objectives of reconstruction are to restore the full operational capability of the installation to serve as the prototype for future IotF's. Tyndall AFB located 12 miles east of Panama City, Florida, sustained a direct hit from Category 5 Hurricane Michael, one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the U.S. in more than 25 years. The devastating storm inflicted immeasurable, lasting damage across the region and resulted in significant damage and destruction across the installation. At Tyndall AFB, Jacobs has transitioned the master planning effort into zone development plans and completed 42 program requirements packages which comprise the $2.8B Military Construction Program funding request to the U.S. Congress. Additionally, Jacobs is tasked with updating the installation's facility standards to be consistent with IotF requirements, developing a master program schedule, conducting analysis for delivery methods and preparing reoccurring risk and opportunity planning in support of the Project Management Office's efforts.
