Aviation

Overview

ADA’s diversified staff had the opportunity to enhance both airfields and major airports within the State of Florida. We’ ve been able to navigate through today’s aviation demands while enhancing and modernizing existing facilities.

Projects

Palm Beach International Airport Taxiway D & E Rehabilitation / Reconstruction Project – Palm Beach County Department of Airports

The purpose of the project is to address pavement condition and foreign object debris (FOD) generation of Taxiway D between Runway 10L-28R and Runway 32 End and the entire length of Taxiway E. The project will also address the FAA airfield “Hotspot” at the intersection of Taxiway E, Taxiway L, and Taxiway L3 through the construction of new taxiway connectors between the Southeast General Aviation Apron and Taxiway L to the east and west of Taxiway L3. The new taxiway connectors will be constructed in order to eliminate the existing direct access from the apron to Runway 10L-28R at the intersection of Taxiways E, L and L3, per the new requirements of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Advisory Circular (AC) 150/5300-13A. In addition, the project includes geometry revisions along the length of Taxiway E and the intersection with Taxiway K as well as drainage improvements consistent with the Stormwater Management Master Plan.

 

ADA provided basic services including preparation of construction documents for the supplemental drainage related features of the Taxiway D and E Rehabilitation / Reconstruction project. This supplemental analysis and plan preparation was done to develop a plan for abandoning a drainage pipe under Runway 10L-28R west of Taxiway D and reconnection to Basin 3 of the portion of the airfield bounded by Taxiway D to the east, Runway 10L-28R to the north and Runway 14-32 to the west.

 

In addition to the micro-tunneling design, ADA also designed the Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) for the entire project and was responsible for the permitting of the entire water main through the regulatory agencies including FDOT. Periodic site visits were performed during the micro-tunneling operation in order to certify the micro-tunneling portion of the water main.

Palm Beach County Park Airport (Lantana Airport) – Stormwater Management Master Plan / WPB

The Palm Beach County Department of Airports (DOA) is planning to increase airport operations at the Lantana Airport by developing more apron space and providing for additional FBO hangars on the west side of the airport. This development is expected to modify the existing grading and drainage patterns west of Runway 3-21 and increase the impervious area by approximately 26 acres. Other plans for additional improvements at Lantana Airport (LNA) include the commercial development of DOA owned parcels adjacent to Congress Avenue for use as medical or office space.

 

The Lantana Airport is adjacent to Lake Osborne which has been listed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection as an impaired water body that requires additional treatment of runoff with respect to nitrogen and phosphorus. By utilizing a combination of dry swales, exfiltration trenches and dry detention ponds ADA Engineering, Inc. developed a stormwater management system that will maximize developability of the property while maintaining adherence with all the requirements of applicable regulatory agencies. ADA procured a conceptual permit from the South Florida Water Management District for all the proposed improvements.


CM AND INSPECTIONS FOR BOCA RATON AIRPORT RUNWAY 5-23/ TAXIWAY ‘P’ REHABILITATION

 

ADA provided construction management and administration services and provided oversight of three (3) field inspectors and the QA laboratory during the milling and resurfacing of Runway 5-23, Taxiway ‘P’ and five (5) associated runway connectors, construction of a new Midfield Runway/Taxiway Connector and relocation and improvements of the ATCT/airfield perimeter service road including security enhancements (i.e., fencing, access gates, card reader, cameras and integration of new features into the existing security system).

 

ADA’s daily responsibilities included but were not limited to, disposition of bid alternates, processing of material submittals, shop drawings, change orders, resolution of contractors RFIs, and direction of quality assurance. The program was funded through seven (7) funding sources, including American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grants, to accommodate one (1) construction contract, therefore strict accounting, documentation and filing procedures were established to maintain clear distinction of work performed and personnel employed for each respective source. ADA supervised and coordinated contractor installation of burrowing owl protection measures and insured protection of active nests during construction and also facilitated the relocation of several burrowing owl nests in compliance with all applicable permit requirements defined in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Burrowing Owl Nest Removal Permit.
