We offer clients a seamless integrated and multidisciplinary service on projects of all sizes. 

Our expertise covers every aspect of developing aviation infrastructure:

  • Market evaluation and forecasting 
  • Location assessment and site selection
  • Master planning, strategic planning, and feasibility studies
  • Planning, design and supervision of construction work related to runways, taxiways and aprons
  • Planning and design of passenger and cargo terminals and land-side and access facilities
  • Environmental impact assessments

We provide qualified support throughout the project process from initial planning to design, construction supervision and asset maintenance.

Trusted and reliable partner

Our clients include concessionaires, airport authorities, architects, consultancies, contractors, and airlines.

We understand that each project is unique and therefore focus on understanding individual client needs to achieve the best solutions.

We are also adept at managing the complex stakeholder relations in aviation projects to ensure a smooth delivery process.

Advanced airfield expertise

We pride ourselves on producing innovative airfield designs that deliver long term performance and safety at a competitive cost.

We have developed our own airfield pavement management system, Airpave. This user-friendly, web-based system en-compasses airside and landside pavement monitoring, prediction of likely maintenance needs and enables long term financial planning.

Socio-economic assessment for a new mega airport in London

The London Airport system comprising the main airports Heathrow, Gatwich, and Stansted is running short of runways and terminal capacity which leads to congested airports with delays and long waiting times both for the passengers and for the airline operators. Furthermore, London is losing the lead position as one of the main transfer hubs between particularly North American and European destinations and as a gateway to Asia due to the capacity constraints.

Single European Sky in the Nordic and Baltic countries

Never before have governments been under such pressure to deliver such a high level of infrastructure at such low cost while at the same time reducing CO2 emissions. When it comes to aviation, rationalising flight patterns for greater efficiency is an obvious place to start. However, sensitivity about air sovereignty means the process of working toward a united European airspace is a highly delicate one.
