November 2014

The Apron A Reconstruction Project included the full depth removal and replacement of one of the airport’s asphalt aprons, as well as improvements to existing drainage and electrical systems. The project was completed in 3 distinct phases to limit the impacts that construction would cause on airport operations and on ground airplane traffic. Banicki excavated a total of 9,000 cubic yards of soil, placed 400 lineal feet of 24″ CMP storm drain, applied 25,000 square yards of lime subgrade stabilization, placed 5,150 cubic yards of aggregate base course and paved 5,737 tons of hot mix asphalt paving. Banicki discovered during construction that the single road leading into the airport was to be removed and replaced, a change beyond Banicki’s control that could have resulted in schedule delays of over a month and cost impacts exceeding $85,000. However, Banicki mitigated these costs and schedule impacts by collaborating with the County and the other contractor to develop a comprehensive and re-sequenced schedule for both projects.
