For the foreseeable future, airfield capacity projects will consume a large percentage of federal capital development funds spent at airports. The management of major airfield construction programs generally is administered under a construction management agreement. Due to the size, complexity and operational importance of airfield projects, the construction manager's role is significant.
The Airfield Construction Management Workshop, presented by the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) and Parsons Brinckerhoff, is coming home to AAAE's headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia from September 25-26, 2017! This workshop offers airport staff and other related groups an excellent opportunity to learn more about construction management from the leading professionals in the industry. The workshop's primary subject matter will address:
- Construction Management
- Project Controls
- Creative Project Development
- Airside Construction: Safe, Secure and Successful
- Risk Management
The workshop will provide specific case studies of numerous airfield projects across the country, including runway extensions and new runways at fully operational airports of all sizes. Each presentation will be designed to encourage dialogue between panel participants and attendees. Bring specific questions concerning local projects to the workshop!
All sessions will take place at the AAAE Conference Center, 601 Madison Street, Third Floor, Alexandria, VA 22314. The workshop begins with registration and a continental breakfast at 8 a.m. on Monday, September 25, 2017.
