Jacobs was selected to continue their 30-year partnership with the New York City Economic Development Corporation. The on-call maritime engineering consultant services contract, which includes inspection and engineering services for city-owned maritime infrastructure, was extended for an additional five years.
NYCEDC estimates the value of the contract at $20 million. The contract covers tasks which are critical to providing essential maintenance management services such as underwater inspection, rehabilitation and/or repair design, drone and GIS data collection, database and asset management services to support the Waterfront Facilities Maintenance Management System (WFMMS) database, and resident engineering services. Facilities include the Manhattan and Brooklyn Cruise Terminals, the Red Hook Container Terminal, city marinas, Fire Department of the City of New York and New York Police Department marine facilities, shorelines and beaches, coastal and resiliency structures, waterfront parks and the Greenway, and dredging and reclamation sites.
"We've accomplished a lot with NYCEDC. Together we developed and updated the agency's original Waterfront Facilities Inspection Guidelines, we've improved the city's maritime shipping structures, and supported NYCEDC's mission of exemplary management of their waterfront infrastructure," says Jacobs People & Places Solutions Executive Vice President, Ken Gilmartin. "We look forward to helping further improve the city's underwater and waterfront facilities and collaborating with NYCEDC to improve the quality of life for millions of city residents, workers and visitors."
