Advanced Manufacturing

Captures the supercycle in electronics in response to the global supply chain disruption affecting the full range of specialized manufacturing sectors.


Our differentiating capabilities in the advanced manufacturing market include Jacobs’ highly advanced design and engineering in the electrification ecosystem, data centers and semiconductor manufacturing – deployed through a global integrated delivery platform.

For more than 70 years, we’ve rallied the best teams on the planet to challenge today and reimagine tomorrow. Now, our consultants, architects, engineers and technologists are continuing the story, constantly adding innovations alongside best practice to solve our clients’ most complex problems.

We plan, select sites, design, engineer, oversee construction and complete operations for clients around the world. We’re committed to building a better world for humanity. This simple shared purpose aligns our people, plans and projects.

We dream big. We innovate at speed. We remain accountable for end-to-end delivery. And we always find a way, however ‘impossible’ the challenge. Yet it’s pragmatism and expertise that keeps us on track, guided by the highest standards and united by a laser-like dedication to solve our clients’ problems.

As our clients keep pace with global trends – from climate change to tightening regulation to accelerated construction schedules – our integrated project delivery model ensures they are always one step ahead. We are turnkey project-delivery partners for the world’s advanced facilities – offering full-service engineering, procurement and construction management solutions that give our clients greater control, reduce risk and increase value for money.

We are ‘trusted to transform’ for advanced technology industries, universities and governments, across data centers, electronics, semiconductors, life sciences and specialized manufacturing.

We’re dreaming big and tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

Our history is long when it comes to delivering sustainable, resilient data centers.

We understand the need for a global network of expertise and knowledge to design for scalability, adapt for market demand and innovate to remain several steps ahead. We create impactful solutions so you can succeed – not just today but into tomorrow.

For over 30 years, high-technology, mission critical design has been at the core of our practice. Jacobs is the global leader in providing integrated planning, architecture, engineering, project and construction management and commissioning for data center facilities. 

Explore our data center solutions



Electronics is changing the world at breakneck speed, but without the most impressive factory sites, potential is limited. Our team designs, models, analyses and enables data centers and facilities which make the electronics revolution spin faster.

Four in five of the world’s computers are built in facilities designed by our team. We’ve served the top ten semiconductor manufacturers for 30 years. As the leader in our field, we’re proud to set the standard for facility modelling, industrial engineering, cleanroom architecture and process – plus associated electrical and mechanical systems.

Life sciences

Specialized manufacturing


Whenever manufacturers look to incorporate new technologies or expand into unfamiliar markets, they call us. Why?

Partly, because of our embedded, hard-won knowledge: Our team elevates our clients by delivering cost-effective and transformative projects to the consumer goods and products, metals, pulp and paper and specialty chemical and industrial fermentation markets. We understand that the success of our clients is about more than well-designed facilities; it’s about well-designed strategies tailored for every market and every location.

Add to this our automated tools and simulated integration processes, which minimize costs and maximize value: Our technology-driven services span from virtual simulation tools for process optimization during front-end design, to custom machine solutions that convert designs into working manufacturing systems.

From process design consulting to seamlessly integrated engineering, procurement and construction management services, our people deliver innovative solutions for the world’s most challenging manufacturing projects.
