C&S is proud to announce that the Detroit Metro Airport Runway 3L-21R and associated taxiways project received an Envision Gold award from the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure.

C&S’s Carly Shannon, the Envision administrator, commends Wayne County Airport Authority for proactively and consistently pushing the boundaries. “It is rare to have clear commitment to embrace not only sustainability, but the Envision rating system at the very start of a project. This—combined with the Airport Authority’s intention to exceed accomplishments on the prior runway project—inspired the entire team to raise, implement, and track high-value measures that will contribute to the overall airport sustainability program at DTW.”

As part of a team, C&S managed the sustainability portion of the project and ensured it was in alignment with Envision criteria. we were also responsible for existing base mapping, demolition plans, grading, drainage, utility improvements, sustainability, and security fencing. The $180 million project includes 507,000 square yards of PCC pavement, 272,000 square yards of asphalt shoulder pavement, and 32,000 square yards of asphalt mill and overlay.
