How do you expand Canada’s busiest single runway regional airport when the booming city is closing in from all directions? This is the road block that the Fort McMurray Airport Authority (Authority) experienced as the need for expansion became apparent with every additional passenger traveling though the undersized airport.
To overcome the challenge, the authority approved construction at a remaining greenfield site and hired us to join their team and move forward with their vision. The expansion and redevelopment will meet the needs of the City until 2030 and beyond. We are providing project management services from inception to completion and will take the expansion through its life cycle delivering timely, quality, creative, and cost-effective solutions. Upgrades will include a new 15,000 square meter air terminal building, parking for 1,800 additional vehicles, aircraft parking apron and taxiways, a new access road from Highway 69, and commercial development areas.
After completion scheduled for 2014, the Fort McMurray Airport will be known as the biggest single runway airport that is efficient and comfortable for the years to come.
