Cargo Area Development New Apron at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP)
With increased freight service for international companies doing business in upstate South Carolina, Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) realized the need to develop a new cargo area to serve Boeing 747-800s that operate regularly at the airport. The complete build-out of the site will accommodate parking for up to nine (9) 747-800 aircraft.
Aulick Engineering provided full-time Resident Project Representative (RPR) and construction inspection services of the new cargo apron. Aulick’s scope of work consisted of inspection for earthwork/grading, storm drainage installation, multiple utility installations, base installation, asphalt and concrete paving, new apron lighting system, new airfield lighting and modifications, re-routing of existing FAA ILS cables, partial parallel taxiway closure, and pavement markings. The RPR was responsible for coordination with airport operations and the air traffic control tower, serving as the Owner’s representative, preparing all required FAA forms and documentation, and attending construction meetings.
One of our more recent projects was the Atlantic Aviation FBO Terminal Complex at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport. We hired Aulick Engineering to provide airport and civil site design services for the 25-acre development; their scope encompassed nearly 15 acres of new pavement for taxilanes, aprons, and parking lots on the 25-acre site. Aulick was responsible for airport design, civil site design, stormwater management design, erosion control design, and city and county permitting coordination. Additionally, Aulick was retained to provide construction administration and limited construction inspection services.Aulick Engineering impressed me through all phases of the project. As can be expected at a World War II-era site, several field issues were encountered during the construction phase of the project. Aulick staff members were extremely responsive when these issues arose and were able to be at the job site within minutes; their engineers were resourceful and quickly came up with innovative solutions to ensure that the construction schedule was not adversely impacted. I have witnessed the same behavior while working with Aulick on other projects and appreciate the professionalism and enthusiasm that they bring to our project teams.”
