Helping Deliver One of the Largest Capital Improvement Programs
The original Capital Development Program was completed in 1999 at a program budget of USD 2 billion. In 2000, the Authority commenced a new USD 4.2 billion capital construction program, commonly known as d2 Dulles Development Program, which grew to USD 7.1 billion with approximately USD 3.1 billion completed. The development works at these airports are one of the largest ongoing capital improvement programs in the world. A total of USD 4.9 billion has been expended so far at the two airports on 165 design and 484 construction contracts from 1988 through 2008.
In total, PMC has served as an effective asset to MWAA, helping to set up more than 400 projects at the two airports since 1988, with a total value of construction work in place of over USD 9 billion.
The success of this program has resulted in on-time performance and scheduled delivery of projects under construction that was being performed while full operations continued at both airports. This provided a challenge to the joint venture team to minimize inconvenience to the traveling public.
At some time during the program, we provided five departmental managers for the program to lead the design management, construction management, project controls, quality assurance and safety management efforts.
