WPG is qualified with a wide variety of experience in airport planning and airport capital improvement projects. Since 1968 Richland Engineering Limited, a WallacePancher Group Company, has performed multi-disciplined airport development and airport improvement projects. Our firm has performed multimillion-dollar projects on primary and reliever airports including projects for general aviation airports. We are familiar with project policies and standards through our planning, preliminary development, plan preparation work, and construction administration of ODOT and FAA funded projects. Richland Engineering Limited’s experience in airport projects includes Capital Improvement Project Planning, Engineering, Design, Bid Document Preparation and related Construction Inspection Engineering Services. Our firm also provides general airport operation and planning consultant services for airport improvements.

Airport development, capital improvement or maintenance projects performed on similar airports included grant applications, airport master planning, environmental assessments, economic impact studies, airport layout plans, land acquisition, taxiway and runway construction, reconstruction, extension, pavement rehabilitation, aircraft ramp expansion and rehabilitation, drainage improvements, security fencing, navigation aids (REIL’s, PAPI’s, NDB, AWOS, ASOS, LOC/DME, runway/taxiway lighting, airport beacons), and access management, fueling and storage facilities, roadway construction and relocation, utilities construction and relocation, vehicle and aircraft parking facilities, and many other facilities requiring multi-disciplined engineering services.

Our master planning process closely follows the guidelines of the Federal Aviation Administration Circular 150/5070-6A Airport Master Plans, first developed in the early 1970’s and updated through periodic work sessions and seminars conducted annually by the FAA. The objective of the FAA’s program is to develop coherent and detailed guidance with up-to-date practices and standards for the development of airport improvement projects. The federal and state programs have been established to “provide guidelines to future airport development which will satisfy aviation demand in a financially feasible manner, and address socioeconomic issues existing in the community.” Our firm has assisted our clients and the FAA since 1969 in achieving these goals.
