REPRESENTATIVE EXPERIENCE

Reconstruction of Runway 6-24, Shannon Airport, Ireland – This project, funded by the Shannon Airport Authority, involved the rehabilitation of approximately 2,500 meters of runway at the Shannon Airport, in Ireland. The proposed runway pavement section consists of existing concrete base overlayed with three layers of Marshall asphalt, including a base layer which incorporates Sealoflex. Existing expansion joints in the concrete base were also treated with Glassgrid PG-200 and Sealoflex. Numerous operational impacts and possession of the runway during night time only required close coordination with the IAA, Shannon Airport and the airlines. Project Owner: Shannon Airport Authority, Ireland Year: 2017

Construction of Taxiway “A” Extension, Turners Falls, MA, USA – This project, funded under a Federal Aviation Administration Airport Improvement Program grant, involved the design and construction of approximately 1,000 feet of a taxiway extension at the Turners Falls Airport, in the town of Montague, MA. The complexity of the design taxiway is the result of the location of the Airport in an extremely sensitive archeological area, with many physical constraints related to archeological site impacts. Operational impacts and minimum runway closure required close coordination with the FAA, MAssDOT and the Airport. Project Owner: Town of Montague, MA Year: 2015

Construction of Snow Removal Equipment (SRE) building, Chatham Municipal Airport, Chatham, MA, USA – This project, funded under an FAA AIP grant, involved the design and construction of a 2,700 square feet building to host the snow removal vehicles at the Chatham Municipal Airport in the town of Chatham, MA. Due to the environmentally sensitive location it required close coordination with the Cape Cod Commission, FAA, MassDOT and the Airport. Project Owner: Town of Chatham, MA Year: 2014

Reconstruction of Runway 6-24, George D. Harlow Field, Marshfield, MA, USA – This project, funded under an FAA AIP grant, involved the design and reconstruction of approximately 6,000 feet of runway at the George D. Harlow Field, in the town of Marshfield, MA. The complexity of the design for the proposed runway and taxiway is the result of the location of the Airport in an extremely sensitive environmental area, with many physical constraints related to wetland impacts and protected wildlife habitat. Numerous operational impacts and minimum runway closure required close coordination with the FAA, MAssDOT and the Airport. Project Owner: Town of Marshfield, MA Year: 2013

Taxilanes Reconstruction, Eastern Slope Regional Airport, Fryeburg, ME, USA – This project, funded under the FAA AIP, involved the reconstruction of approximately 15, 000 SF of taxilane serving multiple aircraft hangars. The design and construction efforts consisted of drainage improvements, new drainage structures, demolition of existing features and reconstruction of the pavement structure. Project Owner: Eastern Slope Airport Authority Year: 2013

Reconstruction of Runway 14-32, Boire Field, Nashua Airport Authority, Nashua, NH, USA – This project, funded under an FAA AIP grant, involved the reconstruction of approximately 6,000 feet of runway at the Boire Field, Nashua Airport. The construction efforts consisted of the shift of the existing runway and associated taxiways, and numerous drainage improvements. Project Owner: Nashua Airport Authority Year: 2012-2013

Rehabilitation of Runway 10L-28R, Niagara Falls International Airport, Niagara Falls, NY, USA – This project, funded under the FAA AIP, involved the rehabilitation of approximately 9,800 feet of the Runway 10L-28R at the Niagara Falls International Airport. The construction efforts consisted of rubblization of the existing Portland Cement Concrete runway, overlaying with Hot Mixed Asphalt Concrete and installation of new   centerline and touch down zone lights. Project Owner: Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority Year: 2012

Radiant Heating (Geothermal), Prototype for Airfield Pavements, Greater Binghamton Airport, Town of Maine, NY, USA – This project, funded under an FAA Research grant, involves design and construction of approximately 4,000 SF of a geo-thermally heated concrete apron and passenger ramp to connect the main terminal and the main apron at the Greater Binghamton Airport in the Town of Maine, NY. The new geothermal technology is used primarily to heat up the ramp and apron’s concrete surface during the winter months and cool off the terminal building during the summer months. Project Owner: City of Binghamton  Year: 2011

Terminal Apron Construction Administration, Greater Binghamton Airport, Town of Maine, NY, USA – This project, funded under the FAA AIP, involves design and construction of the Portland Cement Concrete apron for the main terminal apron at the Greater Binghamton Airport in the Town of Maine, NY. The new apron services three major airlines and it included numerous grading, drainage, and electrical improvements. This project required effective communication and countless coordination meetings with the commercial air-carriers for the project to be completed on-time and under budget. Project Owner: City of Binghamton Year: 2011

Tee Hangar Construction Administration, Tri-Cities Airport, Endicott, NY, USA – This project, funded under the New York State Transportation Bond Act Business Airport Development program, involves design and construction phase services for a 12-bay tee hangar at Tri-Cities Airport in Endicott, NY. The new tee hangar, constructed adjacent to the existing tee hangar and across the transient aircraft apron from the terminal building, accommodates single engine aircraft formerly housed in the bulk hangar. Project Owner: Village of Endicott Year: 2010

Airport Obstruction Removal Construction Administration, Tri-Cities Airport, Endicott, NY, USA – This project consisted of design, permitting, and bidding and award services, as well as construction administration for the removal of on-airport tree obstructions to the airspace surrounding Runway 3-21. Project Owner: Village of Endicott Year: 2009

8-Bay T-Hangar Construction Administration, Hamilton Municipal Airport, Hamilton, NY, USA – The project funded by the FAA involves construction administration services for single 8 bay tee hangar structure; an access taxilane and apron pavements immediately adjacent to the structure; and associated drainage, markings, and edge reflectors. Engineering design services for this project were also provided by MJ. Project Owner: Village of Hamilton Year: 2009

Jet A Fuel Construction Administration, Schuylkill County Airport, Pottsville, PA, USA – This project involved preparation of contract documents, assistance in bidding, grants administration and construction administration for the acquisition and installation of a 12,000 gallon Jet-A tank with associated fuel pumping, monitoring and control systems. Project Owner: Schuylkill County Airport Authority  Year: 2008

Bridge Construction Inspection, Court Street Bridge, Binghamton, NY, USA – This federally funded project involved the rehabilitation of the Court Street Bridge over the Chenango River in the City of Binghamton, including replacement of the existing concrete deck under staged construction and repair to the substructure units.
