Aviation projects demand the meticulous attention to safety and detail they get from CSW.

Since 2003, CSW has gained extensive experience completing aviation projects of all sizes using both traditional and alternative delivery methods. We have successfully fulfilled Job Order Contracts (JOC) and performed as Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) for a variety of clients throughout the Southwest, on projects ranging from major airports to general aviation facilities. Currently servicing their fourth consecutive JOC at Sky Harbor International Airport for the City of Phoenix, the CSW aviation team has become a significant asset to both land-side and airside projects.

A primary reason for our continued success on aviation projects is the fact that our aviation team has accumulated more than 8 years of experience together completing projects throughout the state. In addition to increasing quality and productivity, the longevity of our team has given us an intimate understanding of FAA regulations, FOD and dust control, and the enhanced security measures required of aviation work. It has also afforded us the expertise necessary to provide our clients time and money-saving pre-construction services. Contact CSW for more information on how our aviation team can help you land your aviation project safely, on time and within budget.

Project Portfolio

Taxiway G&H
The Airfield Utility Access Upgrades completed as part of this project were located within Taxiway “G” and Taxiway “H” infields, areas south of Taxiway “G” and areas adjacent to the South Air Cargo apron. A majority of the utility vaults were installed with spring assist lids to make it easier for maintenance access. Over time the spring assist mechanism has degraded and in many cases is no longer effective. This results in more manual effort in maintenance and increased safety hazards for maintenance crew. Additionally, areas within the infields have several utility vaults and manholes that are not graded properly, resulting in ponding and inundating the utility vault with water during storm events. The project improvements included adjusting (raising) existing electrical and communication utility vaults, raising existing sanitary sewer manholes, raising existing storm drain manholes, and addition of new storm drainage infrastructure to provide positive drainage near utility vaults. The dirt infield areas were approximately 200 feet in width and length varied to 1,400 feet. Upgrades also included replacement of existing utility vault lids with new cylinder assist lids. The projects also addressed all foreign debris (FOD) and damage. Over 110,000 SY of asphalt paving was performed and onsite soils were excavated from utility cuts and used as cut to fill in areas where grading and drainage infrastructure were located. The CSW Team maintained consistent and constant communication with operations, aviation staff, FAA and project engineers to provide schedule and scope flexibility. The work was performed in the evenings and weekends to minimize the impact and disruptions to airport traffic and users.
