As part of the Engineering On-call Services for H-JAIA, Pond provided full engineering design services for the runway 8R End Around Taxiway which is a signature $37,700,000 project that is the only one of its kind within the United States.
The new taxiway around the runway safety area and below the departure surfaces allows taxiing aircraft to cross Runway 8R/26L while other planes are taking off. The overall 120 acre project site includes both airside construction of the 2500’ long taxiway and extensive landside improvements include realigning the airport terminal roadways, parking areas, site lighting, reconstruction of the storm drainage system including a storm water pump station for 40 acres of the site, 1,200,000 CY of excavation, the relocation of major utilities, and retaining walls. Developing construction plans that presented detailed construction phasing including the coordination of utility relocations while minimizing operational impacts at the world’s busiest airport were paramount to this successful project.
For the Taxiway V project, Pond provided the design for the relocation of 1800′ of 16″ water main. Due to the grade changes in excess of 30 foot, 1500’ of 16” waterline was required to be re-installed. This design was required to maintain service during the staged construction and include the interface with temporary and permanent retaining walls. Project also includes the design and installation of an 1800’ sanitary force main from the new gate 1A to an existing facility.
This project was completed under the Aviation Consulting Team Joint Venture contract of which Pond is the lead firm.
