For over 25 years we’ve been involved with Wellington Airport’s airfield maintenance. Having recently secured the contract for professional airfield engineering services, we’ll continue to be involved.
By 2030, passenger numbers at Wellington International Airport (WIAL) are expected to double to 10 million. So making sure the airport is well-equipped to safely handle this volume of expected passengers is critical. It starts with the maintenance of the essential pavement infrastructure.
As part of the professional airfield engineering services contract, we support the airport to function safely by inspecting and maintaining both their airside and landside pavements.
Airport pavements are unique in how they need to handle extremely heavy aircraft wheel loads as well as local weather extremes. Thanks to our skills and experience in heavy duty pavement engineering, plus an in-depth knowledge of pavement materials and design methods, we help the airport to maximise the life of their pavement assets.
These key airport assets will continue to operate effectively long-term thanks to helping the airport select an appropriate maintenance contractor. We also undertake the annual airside and landside pavement inspections. As part of this, a partnering agreement has been set up which focuses on achieving excellence in communication, coordination and collaboration between all parties involved. This essential work supports WIAL's current and future visitor growth, keeping things moving in the windy city.
