Design/Build Taxiway Whiskey - Andrews AFB, Maryland

This project consisted of the removal and replacement of approximately 125,000 square feet of 14” thick poured-in-place concrete pavement for the southern portion of Taxiway Whiskey and the adjacent apron normally used by Air Force One and support aircraft as a temporary parking area while loading and off-loading high-profile passengers. This project also included the installation of a storm water management system at the infield to filter surface storm water from the air field, reducing the flow of surface water containing sediments from being discharged directly into the existing storm water system. Safety was a high point of interest on the project, which resulted in no lost time because of safety issues or restraints.. Due to the strict concrete specifications and the high security checks to enter the base, Global set up a temporary batch plant on base located a half mile from the project site.
