Engineering/Airside Track: "Back in Time" - Revisiting the Known

Has anything changed in Construction Management? Remember the importance of NOTAMs and Construction Safety and Phasing Plans (CSPP)? Have we been virtual long enough to forget some of the most important aspects of construction on airports? Well, it’s time to revisit the known. Join us to discuss the importance of NOTAMs and Construction Safety and Phasing Plans (CSPP), as well as the applications and resources and available.

Planning Track - Integrating Equity into Planning

Airports often consider equity and/or environmental justice impacts to communities only after their preferred project alternative is selected during the NEPA process. These conversations need to happen earlier in the planning process. This session will explore best practices in community and stakeholder engagement at the project visioning and strategic planning stage.

PM/CM Track - Why Can't You Just Agree with Me? Defining Success in Terminal Projects

Success. A common definition is required in terminal projects with so many stakeholders involved. Key stakeholders with differing priorities will define a successful program from their perspective. Overarching principles may be common, but with differing importance placed upon them. How do successful programs unify these perspectives for the common good of "The Project"? The perspectives of the Airport, Airline, Architect and Construction Manager will be represented and will discuss challenges and influences while defining success.”

Terminal/Landside Track - Asset Management for All Sized Airports

Asset management is used by airports of all sizes to track the life-cycle management of assets in a cost-effective manner while assessing risks. With the limited resources that airports currently face, airport managers are looking for ways to better manage their existing infrastructure, reduce asset downtime, and save costs. This session will provide a high level overview of developing and implementing an asset management program at various sized airports and show the importance and long-term benefits of asset management.

Mini Track: YP Committee Hosted Session: How to Communicate Effectively and Develop Critical Soft Skills

This session will provide an overview of the importance of being able to effectively communicate in the 21st century and in a technology heavy industry. There is no denying the importance of strong and effective soft skills and the role they play in career development, growth, and career/life opportunities. As a young professional in the A/E/C industry, early training is primarily focused on the technical aspects of the industry, and rightfully so. Life is about AND, not OR, and young professionals need the opportunity to grow their communication and soft skills muscle as well. In the world today, knowing what to say, when and how to say it, or in many cases, what not to say, can be very impactful to your career and teammates. Being intentional and focusing on developing these skills early in your career will prepare YPs and your team on an expedited path to success.

Planning Track - How emerging forms of mobility and technologies are transforming airports

Our airports are in transition – both on the landside and airside. A growing parking paradox on the landside is taking place as new emerging forms of “always in motion” mobility continue to shift users from conventional modes and the on-airport facilitates that support them. Fully autonomous vehicles are coming to the frontage and on the aprons along with new emerging modes of aviation. Airports will face challenges of how best to adapt their facilities and operations to these changes which will include managing capacity, operating efficiently, ensuring resiliency and identifying new streams of revenue.

PM/CM Track - Look Up: The Making of the PDX Modular Roof

The showpiece for the Portland International Airport’s new main terminal is a modular mass timber roof that consolidates 80 years of expansion and renovation into one floorplate. Comprised of approximately 3.3 million board feet Douglas Fir, the 9-acre roof supports multiple goals: cost, constructability, sustainability, resiliency, and regional identity. Explore the ingenuity, testing and careful coordination that advanced an early design concept to onsite prefabrication, and eventual installation in 2022.”

Terminal/Landside Track - Keep the Change – The Evolution of Landside Access

The pandemic impacted how passengers travel to and from the airport, and the landside environment has seen an evolution in modal shift as travelers forgo shared rides to drive or be driven. Vaccination rates and new virus variants continue to affect confidence in air travel, and, thus, the passenger’s choice regarding access to the airport remains fluid. How has the airport and their ground transportation partners adapted their operations to accommodate the dynamic landside landscape? What new technological advancements were implemented or accelerated and how will they be used moving forward? The lasting impact of the pandemic may pave the way for a new set of disruptors to emerge for which airports need to be prepared.

Mini Track: General Aviation Airport Business Plans

The process of developing an airport business plan can be a detailed tactical plan to guide specific activities and financial performance over a 1-2-year timeframe, often toward a focused set of objectives. Or, a business plan can be a strategic plan with longer range initiatives that set or adjust the course of airport management, oversight, policy, and improvement or development from a higher-level perspective. There is a place for both strategic and tactical business planning, and this session will provide insights from several GA airport sponsors and management.

Planning Track - Digital Twins - The Future of IT/Data Analytics

What is data analytics and how they can be applied in airport planning? This session will provide a greater understanding of data analytics, identify the numerous data sources available to airports and how to best leverage the data to support business objectives. The session will also touch on data integration, data ownership, and data management strategies. The increased use and collection of data at airports will allow the proactive application of data intelligence to support the airport executives' strategic goals and business objectives and not just as a tool for a reactive analysis.

PM/CM Track - Customer Experience at the Core of What We Do

An exceptional guest experience that includes a culture that embraces service is not a “nice to have” but can impact an airport’s bottom line. Today’s successful airports embrace service in their culture. This must extend into both the design and construction of airport improvements. This session will explore the role of customer experience in airport planning, design and construction through data collection and analysis, journey mapping and service design. We will also address the guest experience during construction with how and why contractors can reduce disruption and contribute to a calm environment. Together, project teams can create a safe and healthy experience, so guests spend more time and money in airports.

Terminal/Landside Track - Pliability in Planning…Is Your Terminal Ready?

This session would bring dialogue and examples where the resurgence of passengers specifically in the leisure market is causing challenges to terminal planning requirements. Legacy airlines and new entrants have also become much more agile to respond to changes in demand and travel restrictions. This could include more non-daily service, equipment changes, as well as adding and removing service much quicker and with little notice. Will this trend continue, and what considerations are there in planning flexible/adaptable facilities and the importance of stakeholder coordination in the process?
