Detroit Metro Runway 4L-22R Rehabilitation
C&S was part of a large design team for the complete rehabilitation of Runway 4L-22R and associated taxiways. C&S helped review and investigate pavement rehabilitation options and alternatives and led the development of construction phasing alternatives. The $84 million project was divided into three separate bid packages to accommodate complex phasing and construction seasonal requirements. To facilitate construction activities, maintain safety and security, and reduce delays, C&S designed a new active airport operations area (AOA) security perimeter fence that included the majority of the project area. The runway and taxiway pavement reconstruction were completed outside the AOA. C&S also led the integration of sustainability, facilitating a charrette at the onset of design to identify opportunities. We applied the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure’s Envision guidance and pursued an award. The project received the Envision Silver award, becoming only the second airfield project to be certified. C&S was responsible for daily construction inspection.
