Branson West Airport
Emery Sapp and Sons received a project by the City of Branson for the construction of a new concrete apron at the Branson West Airport. This project was in the secure area of the airport movement area, which required an enhanced inspection of all personnel and equipment entering the worksite. To reduce significant slowdown ESS prepared a unique proposal that was accepted by Airport Security. This proposal allowed for a temporary security fence between the work area and the secure portion of the movement area. This allowed 90% of construction to be done outside of the security inspections, and only the final tie-ins and final subcontractor work required the enhanced inspection. This solution allowed the project to be completed quickly without a negative impact to the airport.
