We make it easier to start the journey

That’s why the infrastructure surrounding an airport – the roadways, parking lots and garages, walkways, and hangars – and the infrastructure underneath the airport (utilities and drainage) are so important. They’re often the first thing your passengers experience, and we want that first impression to be positive and lasting. Read More

Iqaluit Air Terminal Building

The Government of Nunavut wanted an iconic piece of infrastructure that would reflect their culture and history and be designed with their particular climate in mind. It came down to one simple question: How do you design an airport P3 project that's unlike any other? Read More

Lynden Pindling International Airport

Complex infrastructure projects often have one major challenge in common: they have to keep running while you work on them. During the Lynden Pindling International Airport project, we worked to design and construct updates while simultaneously decommissioning existing (and aging) portions of the airport. Read More
