GEC professionals have provided airport facilities with designs of access roadways, facility perimeter roadways, drainage infrastructures, parking facilities, as well as specialized runway lighting systems.
Airports are an intricate part of the multi-modal transportation system. Airports are nationally known as an economic development engine for the communities they serve. Airports are required to strive for self-sufficiency from a financial standpoint thus eliminating the burden on local tax dollars to support airport operations. Airports possess unique tax incentives that run “in perpetuity” with improvements owned by the airport. There are also desirable financing abilities associated with long-term leasing arrangements that enhance developments for aeronautical and non-aeronautical uses.
GEC has vast experience with infrastructure development and has secured Engineering contracts for aviation infrastructure development for the New Orleans Lakefront Airport, Livingston, New Iberia, Dequincy, New Roads, and Stennis International.
