Jacobs has been selected by National Industrial Corridor Development Corporation Limited (NICDC) to deliver master planning and preliminary engineering design services for three greenfield industrial developments in South India. The projects, under the third phase of the NICDC's National Industrial Corridor Development Program, aim to reimagine industrial cities in India and create new global manufacturing and investment destinations with world-class road, rail, water, power and social infrastructure.

Jacobs will provide innovative, evidence-based master planning and engineering design solutions to bring NICDC's vision for a global manufacturing hub transformed for the 21st century to life using cutting-edge technology. By combining information and communication technologies with the latest digital delivery and modelling tools, Jacobs will deliver data-driven generative designs, advanced visualization techniques and smarter integration of city infrastructure.

"We've been working with NICDC in India for the past 12 years," said Jacobs People & Places Solutions Executive Vice President Patrick Hill. "These latest appointments give us the opportunity to combine that experience with the recent advances in digital and technology to set the new standard of excellence for industrial developments, to help diversify India's economy and to deliver long-term economic growth."

The clusters, located at Palakkad in Kerala, and Ponneri and Dharmapuri-Salem in Tamil Nadu, will extend the Chennai-Bengaluru Industrial Corridor to Kochi. Jacobs will also deliver the economic feasibility assessment to help shape environmentally and economically resilient developments long into the future. When complete, the new smart cities are expected to attract businesses manufacturing high-value products with excellent export potential and help fuel economic and socio-economic development in the region.
