Calgary International Airport (YYC) announced that PCL Construction has been selected as the construction manager for the airport’s West Runway Rehabilitation project.
The rehabilitation will include removal and replacement of the existing pavement structure. Upgrades to the runway’s aging electrical and drainage systems and supporting infrastructure will also be included in the design scope. The project will also include improvements to existing taxiways and aircraft movement surfaces.
“Our team of industry-leading construction experts will ensure the airport’s world-class guest experience is maintained while we strategically rebuild one of three critical runways,” says Alistair McKnight, PCL’s district manager for Calgary and Southern Alberta. “We are grateful for The Authority’s continued trust and partnership with PCL as we embark on this important project with them.”
“The West Runway Rehabilitation project is a keystone project for YYC and will play a pivotal role in the long-term success of our airport and the greater Calgary region,” said Chris Miles, COO for The Calgary Airport Authority. “Given PCL’s depth of experience, The Authority is confident in their ability to help contribute to this historic project in a safe and efficient manner.”
With sustainability as a priority, the Authority is proud to be working with PCL as well as contractors and consultants to deliver Canada’s first airport project to be certified under the Envision framework for sustainable infrastructure. Envision is a comprehensive framework for incorporating sustainability into the design, construction and operation of infrastructure systems and projects.
