DFW has selected CH2M's aviation experts for a five-year civil design and design management services on-call contract as it bids to enhance its airside and landside infrastructure.
While Denver International Airport has awarded it a contract for its Gate Apron Rehabilitation and Drainage Improvements Program.
At DFW, CH2M is serving in the prime consultant role, with multi-disciplinary team members Alliance Geotechnical Group, A P Engineering Consultant, Eudacorp, Hayden Consultants, Iconic Consulting Group, Mead & Hunt, Milhouse Engineering & Construction, The Rios Group and TransSolutions.
The scope of work encompasses design and design management of airfield civil engineering projects for DFW's Capital Improvement Program.
"We are thrilled to support DFW's infrastructure improvements and to bring our design and management expertise to this game-changing program," says CH2M's aviation director, Bill Peduzzi.
"We look forward to helping the airport continue its mission of delivering a seamless travel experience for DFW passengers."
At DEN, the firm will provide design and construction administration services for several gate apron rehabilitation and drainage improvements at the airport.
The scope of the three-year project encompasses professional engineering support and technical services for enhancements adjacent to Concourses A, B and C.
The work includes providing pavement evaluations, recommendations and phasing for the programme; replacing deteriorating apron pavement, mitigating apron drainage issues and ponding, and preventing water infiltration into the concourse basements; and conducting utility and infrastructure work, such as the installation of a new drainage system, utility vault adjustments, demolition of baggage tunnels and dog houses, removal of de-icing tanks, replacement of sand-oil interceptors and replacement of grease traps.
A critical success factor for the project will be co-ordinating construction activities with the airlines, concessionaires, airport management and ground transportation, to support ongoing flight operations, says CH2M.
Program manager, Nick Rollo, says: "Delivering airport rehabilitation and expansion projects while minimising impacts to airport operations is what we do best.
"We have assembled an exceptionally talented team with a depth of technical knowledge around the gate apron program at DEN. We look forward to collaborating with the airport's stakeholders and construction partners to make this project a resounding success."
