Margot Orr Jones

Director of Future Cities Development, Jacobs

Margot genuinely believes in the benefits that great cities offer, if we design them right – her job is to ensure that we do.

Working globally, Margot has cultivated a strong ability for bigger picture thinking that leads to exceptionally forward-looking developments. Working in the UK, she appreciates the immense opportunities associated with a well-curated development strategy and she knows how to capitalise on it.

Margot leads the Cities at Jacobs team which delivers complex, multidisciplinary, game-changing development projects.  Innovation, transit oriented development, density, job creation, renewable resources, infrastructure, and environmental rejuvenation are at the heart of her work. Margot balances these essential urban elements to create bankable, buildable, and long-lasting cities.
