These projects may include rehabilitation, improvements, and enhancements to infrastructure such as runways, taxiways, utilities, security, signage, airfield support facilities, and airport transit systems.
“As one of the nation’s leading aviation program management consultants, we look forward to providing fine-tuned best practices from our successful work on major international airports combined with our global technical expertise,” said Jennifer Aument, chief executive of AECOM’s global Transportation business. “DFW is at the forefront of airport innovation and we are honoured to help deliver its next generation of airfield projects efficiently, safely, and with minimal impacts to active operations.”
