The above photo shows a view looking to the north on Runway 17-35 at MSP International Airport. The addition of an 8,000-foot runway at the eighth busiest airport in the world presented many challenges to the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) and TKDA. TKDA developed realistic budgets and kept them updated as the project progressed, assisting MAC in keeping this multi-year project under budget. TKDA’s team led not only the design and construction effort, but also coordinated with MAC tenants, the FAA, and other consultants, in developing schedules that kept airport operations running efficiently, while maintaining airport security and allowing for the safe movement of construction vehicles on the field.
