CP&Y provided multi-discipline planning, engineering, and construction phase services for the AFW. Funded by the FAA and TxDOT, the projects were designed in accordance with FAA and TxDOT standards. CP&Y’s project experience at AFW includes:

Wildlife Hazard Assessment: Fieldwork and data collection to quantify potential wildlife hazards to the AFW’s operations and recommend actions for reducing these hazards going forward.

RTR Duct Bank & Taxiway H Repairs: Engineering design and construction support services for the construction of 6,000 LF concrete-encased communications and electrical duct bank, including 26 manholes, to serve the FAA’s new remote transmitter/receiver antenna array. The project also included concrete pavement replacement on Taxiway H.

Taxiway A Centerline Light Improvement: Engineering design and construction support services for the replacement of all Taxiway A centerline lights and cabling with new LED lights and cables.

High Mast Light Assessment: Preparation of a report summarizing the impact of replacing the ramp high mast lights with LED fixtures including existing and proposed light levels throughout the ramp and life-cycle cost analysis.

Rehabilitate Airfield Shoulders: Engineering design and construction support services for crack seal and surface treatment to rehabilitate and rejuvenate all the asphalt shoulder pavements at AFW.

Taxiway Papa Extension: Engineering design for a 2,100’ extension of Taxiway Papa to provide access to West Side development.  Multiple bid schedules and sequencing alternatives were developed and evaluated to maximize potential funding opportunities.

RIM Hot Spot Mitigation: Provided fast-track design services to take advantage of TxDOT Routine Airport Maintenance Program (RAMP) funding to add a “No Taxi” island to prevent direct access from the parking apron to Runway 16L-34R.

14 CFR Part 150 Noise Compatibility Study Update: Provided project management and coordination for a Noise Exposure Map (NEM) update to determine whether updated NEMs resulting from changes in operational characteristics at AFW require updates to the approved Noise Control Plan (NCP).
