This project consisted of the reconstruction of a Portland Concrete Cement Paving taxiway directly in front of Concourse A at the Salt Lake City International Airport. Throughout the project, close coordination between the Airport Operations group and construction crews was required to ensure construction traffic and taxiing airplanes did not have any conflicts.
What makes it interesting?
This project was interesting because workspace and staging areas were extremely limited, requiring crews and equipment to work in close proximity to taxiing airplanes. Work was often disrupted while crews waited for planes to taxi in and out of Concourse A. Most of the airplanes were good about following the temporary detour striping to route them around the project, but a few planes did not. The wing of a particular airplane shown in the photo extended well into the workspace, barely missing a loader and passing over one of the pick-ups and an employee. This was not the first time on this project that this happened, just the one caught on camera.
How HCSS Software assisted with this project
This project was bid with HCSS HeavyBid and managed with HCSS HeavyJob. On bid day, using the HeavyBid quote folder system to manage material prices and subcontractors was essential. The HCSS HeavyJob Field Mobile App was used on this job and allowed field personnel to quickly and accurately report and track vital job data.
