Jacobs Health Architect in Melbourne, Australia

Health Architect


Jacobs is a global provider of technical, professional and scientific services including engineering, architecture, construction, operations and project management. Our portfolio spans industrial, commercial, and government clients across multiple markets and geographies.

Our approach to design unifies architecture and engineering. We design by working directly through our multi-disciplinary approach, our clients and their stakeholders to understand user demands, technology and objectives.

When we design a transit centre, we bring an understanding of the entire transport network. When we design a research facility, we seek to understand the science. When we design a hospital, we develop facilities that respond to its specific model of care. We investigate technologies and operational trends, celebrating in our responses the union of architecture and engineering.
