The project is located at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport near Baltimore, Maryland. The 20-month, $80 million project will bring Runway 15R-33L into compliance with the new Federal Aviation Administration-mandated safety standards. The work included moving all in-pavement lights, construction of new shoulders, reconstruction of Taxiway P, reconstruction of Taxiway D, reconstruction of Taxiway R and modifications on numerous other adjacent taxiways along the 2-mile runway. Some notable quantities for the project included more than 150,000 tons of asphalt, 300,000 cubic yards of earthwork, 100,000 ton of P-209 stone base, 50,000 cubic yards of concrete pavement, 1000 new pavement lights and over 94 miles of 5 Kv cable. The pace of construction included one seven-month runway shutdown which was responsible for approximately $60 million of the work.
What makes it interesting?
The BWI Runway Project rehabilitated the entire runway 15R-33L, as well as relocating the runway centerline by 3 feet horizontally.
How HCSS Software assisted with this project
We have come to value HeavyBid as a critical tool in our company’s estimating process. In the estimate creation stage, the manner in which HeavyBid organizes and standardizes the input of information has saved us a lot of time and confusion. Especially with estimates of this size, the project demanded that we have over 200 bid items, 3000 individual construction activities and at times, up to six estimators in this particular estimate at a time. Performance was never a problem. Then once it came time to review, HeavyBid’s infrastructure construction software review tools made it easy to find missing items, errors and quickly fix what was inconsistent or incorrect.
