Comprehensive Airport Engineering and Planning Services
The continuing growth and complexity of aviation related activity has increased airport sponsor demand for comprehensive environmental assessment, physical planning and management support services. Armstrong Consultants is proud to provide a full range of aviation services for a diverse assortment of clients, including commercial service airports, general aviation airports, corporate aviation organizations and local communities. Our previous clients have benefited from a vast amount of services provided through one distinct consulting company. Our aviation services include the following:
Airport Construction and Design
We have extensive experience in airport construction and design under diverse conditions. Several of our past projects were developed under unique design requirements because of poor soil conditions, topography and other constraints. Such projects require innovative design and construction management techniques at which our engineers excel. We pay strict attention to design and closely monitor construction activities to ensure FAA specification compliance.
The construction phase of a project requires on-site control of scheduling, costs and quality to ensure progress and successful completion. We offer a full-time resident inspector on all construction projects to serve as a liaison for the client, contractor and our office.
Airport Master Planning
Our staff members are highly qualified professionals with expertise in airport management, physical planning, engineering, environmental science and socioeconomics. Our firm provides comprehensive airport master and aviation planning emphasizing existing deficiencies and recommending feasible, practical short-term solutions. Short-term and long-term airport development needs are identified and prioritized in the capital improvement planning process.
Airspace Compatibility Analysis
Comprehensive airspace compatibility analyses are an integral component of any aeronautical study. Recommendations developed in conjunction with airport master and aviation system plans, compatible land use plans and environmental assessments usually have a direct impact on the terminal airspace and occasionally impact the airspace on a regional scale. Armstrong Consultants provides the aviation skills necessary to evaluate airspace impacts resulting from new or expanded airfield systems, noise abatement procedures, preferential flight track utilization and changes in Air Traffic Control and pilot operating procedures.
Professional Integrity and Client Satisfaction
Successful consulting service depends not only on technical qualifications but also on professional integrity and a sincere dedication to client goals. Our firm’s philosophy has evolved and is nurtured by our extensive airport experience and the recognition that each client is as unique as the project.
We maintain close working relationships with federal and state jurisdictional agencies and keep an up-to-date library of applicable regulations and advisory documentation. Every new project we undertake is a unique challenge to not only accomplish the project and client goals, but also to increase our base of “hands-on” experience and library of information for future assignments.
Experience in Public Participation
As part of the comprehensive permitting and planning services, Armstrong Consultants offers assistance with the planning, organization and implementation of public participation programs and the presentation of expert testimony at hearings. Armstrong Consultants’ personnel have developed agency interface and public participation programs which have achieved excellent results.
Use of Local Qualified Subconsultants
We make every effort to use qualified local subconsultants. Because of the logistical efficiency, we typically use local subconsultants for aerial photography and mapping, environmental inventories, surveying, soils drilling and construction testing. This approach provides an efficient balance between our specialized airport planning and engineering services and the insight of locally familiar subconsultants.
