Philadelphia International Airport

Davey Resource Group completed fieldwork to document existing environmental conditions and then provided technical documentation and regulatory guidance to support permit applications for the Philadelphia International Airport runway extension project.

Expanding Capacity Through Runway Extension

The City of Philadelphia proposed the Stage 1 Airfield Development Project, which involves the extension of Runway 27L and associated taxiways at Philadelphia International Airport. This project is part of the Capacity Enhancement Project (CEP).

The CEP underwent the review process pursuant to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations under the National Environmental Policy Act and received a Record of Decision issued by the FAA in December 2010. An alternative was selected for final design and permitting.

Helping the Project Take Flight

Davey Resource Group (DRG) was responsible for completing the required fieldwork to document existing environmental conditions. DRG also supported the environmental consultant who was part of the airport’s project management organization in preparing technical documents to support state agency permit applications, including approvals for Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Chapter 105 and Chapter 106. DRG provided guidance and direction to the client regarding regulatory agency permit approvals for the runway extension and taxiway project.

DRG helped the Philadelphia International Airport complete necessary permitting and fieldwork to complete a runway extension project.
