The Jasper County Airport Authority (JCAA) in Indiana has awarded Woolpert with a Master Services Agreement to provide master planning, environmental assessment, land acquisition, aviation design, geospatial obstruction and aeronautical surveys, and construction management and inspection for the Rensselaer hub, which is located around 80 miles south of Chicago.
The Jasper County Airport is a publicly owned, general aviation airport that serves local and transiting aircraft via one paved runway and one grass runway.
Woolpert’s Senior Aviation Project Manager, Curtis Brown, said “The goal of the airport master plan is to determine the most viable, cost-effective improvements to increase the volume and versatility of the airport. Woolpert will evaluate realigning and extending the primary runway to accomplish this mission.”
Recognising Woolpert’s expertise in master planning, runway extension programmes, geospatial aviation expertise and cross-market capabilities, as well as the firm’s regional expertise, Jasper County Airport Manager, Ray Seif, said he’s looking forward to working with the robust team to increase traffic and revenue for the county. Woolpert has partnered with NGC, a long time JCAA consultant.
“We’re extremely thankful for (NGC Vice Presicent) Ken Ross and the folks at NGC for helping to get us where we are today and we’re excited to see how far we can go with Woolpert’s guidance,” he added.
