LaGuardia Airport in New York is a good example of the challenges faced by existing installations. Built in 1964, Terminal B was designed for 8 million people; today, it serves more than 13 million people. New facilities were badly needed and authorities agreed to a $4 billion project, in one of the most important public-private partnerships in the US.
Asset Management Tailored to Aviation Needs
As airport owners and operators worldwide face unprecedented challenges with capacity constraints, financial challenges, and aging aviation infrastructure, the ability to think out-of-the box and to create new forward-looking solutions is needed. Airports must also meet constantly changing standards for levels of service, passenger preferences, technology, safety and sustainability.
Drawing on the latest technologies and innovations, we offer support to our clients ranging from strategic consulting, private financing initiatives, alternative energy solutions and planning/environmental services to design and construction-phase services to operations and maintenance, as well as provide program and construction management skills to oversee entire projects or capital programs.
In addition to airside and landside aviation facilities, WSP also provides the full range of services for the facilities upon which airports depend, such as central utility plants and parking garages, in-line explosive detection systems, passenger security screening checkpoints, as well as highway and transit systems to and within airports.
