At Beca Airports, we understand that every airport environment is different and requires a unique approach to the design and layout of airfield infrastructure.
Our airfield and airport specialists have a strong background in heavy duty pavement engineering and an in-depth knowledge of pavement materials and mechanistic methods of pavement design for heavy aircraft wheel loads.
This knowledge is based on our teams’ experience of global trends in airfield pavement design, research development in Australian and New Zealand and of numerous major civil and military airfield pavement construction projects.
Pavement solutions may include concrete, asphalt, interlocking concrete block surfacings, chip seal or even grass, depending on the location and intended use. ‘Whole of Life’ economic evaluations can be undertaken to assist in the decision-making and pavement selection process.
This pavement expertise is coupled with our general civil engineering design tools, including 3D grading, stormwater design, in-ground fuel systems design and apron flood lighting design.
Airfield design services that we offer include:
- field investigations and survey
- civil and stormwater design
- airfield geometry
- pavements, fuelling, floodlighting, jet blast
- CAD, civil, 3D, MX
- contract specifications and documentation.
