Fast-track upgrades strengthens airport runway
Garver provided planning, environmental, design, and construction phase services for a runway rehabilitation project at Rogers Executive Airport. Rehabilitation of Runway 2-20, the airport’s lone runway, consisted of full reconstruction of the runway keel section and a mill and overlay of the remaining runway surface. The improvements make it so Runway 2-20 can support aircraft up to 100,000 pounds. To alleviate impact on airport operations, Garver’s Construction Services Team worked with the contractor around the clock on 12-hour shifts, with daily meetings to address project progress. The project was completed in eight days, 24 hours ahead of schedule.
We overcame the challenge of an aggressive timeline with communication via daily site meetings and constant presence by Garver personnel to make sure everything was going smoothly.Adam White Aviation Team Leader
