PASADENA, Calif., Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today that its joint venture with AMEC, Assystem and Mott MacDonald has been awarded one of two contracts that establishes a design services alliance (DSA) with Sellafield Limited for its operation in West Cumbria, United Kingdom.

The DSA framework, awarded to the AXIOM joint venture, provides Sellafield with access to the full range of multi-disciplined engineering services - civil and structural, mechanical, control and instrumentation and process - for the development and refurbishment of new and existing facilities and decommissioning at the Sellafield site.

This work is being delivered in collaboration with Sellafield's own staff and local suppliers with all parties working as part of an integrated team.
