McMillen Jacobs Associates is the combination of two rich histories creating one great future. In December 2014, Jacobs Associates, Inc. and McMillen, LLC merged to bring together the combination of over 75 years of technical engineering design and construction expertise in the conveyance (water, wastewater, stormwater), dispute resolution, energy and power, transportation, underground, and water resources industries. We offer a full range of design, design-build, self-performing construction and construction management services. We work closely with our clients at every stage of a project, assisting them with planning, design expertise, project management, construction, and start-up.

Year Founded:

Our combination of technical expertise and field experience puts us ahead of our competitors. Our founder believed in the importance of engineers “getting their hands dirty,” and we do too. We have specialized education and practical hands-on field knowledge in the disciplines required for underground projects, including engineering geology, geotechnical engineering, rock mechanics, structural engineering, construction contracting, and dispute resolution.

We provide a full array of design services, including tunnel design, shaft design, excavation support, rail clearance improvements, deep foundations, dewatering, slope stabilization, foundation design, and geotechnical characterization. We also understand the construction process at every level. We regularly lead multidisciplinary construction management teams and provide monitoring and inspection services.

Jacobs Associates also is a formidable ally in claims resolution and dispute cases. We have acted on behalf of clients in more than 650 contract disputes of all types and magnitudes.

We have a staff of more than 150 engineers and operate in 13 offices in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.

Jacobs Associates is in business to provide solutions that result in the success of our clients’ complex construction projects. We always approach our work with leading-edge talent and an in-depth understanding of the construction process, and we value individual initiative and teamwork. We also strive to make meaningful contributions to the advancement of the engineering profession.

Our values provide the bedrock for this mission. The Jacobs Associates leadership team exemplifies the firm’s commitment to high-quality and ethical client service standards. Our staff embodies these values and actively supports the firm’s mission. Both engineering and non-engineering staff are creative and innovative, taking the initiative to become experts in their fields. We thrive in the culture of individualism and personal accountability, but we also are able to collaborate effectively and learn from one another.
