Scope of Work
Like many of our aviation projects, this taxiway project will benefit from the precision and efficiency of our stringless concrete paver. The team will use trackhoes and over-the-road dump trucks to perform grading operations and pavement removal. The cement treated permeable base will be installed with a Vogele Paver and the 17” concrete pavement will be slipformed with a G&Z Paver. To maximize the team’s performance, a contract plant and pug mill will be set up on site throughout the duration of the project. Additional scopes of work managed by the team and includes the construction of taxiway lighting, signing, and pavement markings.
