Airport Runway

(Apr 2013 – July 2013)

Merimbula Airport – Aircraft pavement strengthening

ACG was the Project Quality Representative and Construction Airfield Technical Adviser

Specific tasks for this project included:

  • Runway pavement demolition and reinstatement.
  • Construction Quality Control

ACG undertook the role of on-site construction quality representative. We reviewed, the construction works to ensure they met industry standards for airport construction as well as meeting the requirements of the construction documentation.

Project Challenges and Outcomes

As the client wished to maintain aircraft operations during construction, the construction works were required to be staged to enable agreed aircraft movement times. The final stage of work for the central portion of the runway was undertaken in 24 hour work shifts during a brief airport shut down. ACG was onsite during construction to assist with construction planning and ensure construction quality met the design documentation.
