Runway 2L-20R Reconstruction
Garver’s Aviation Group helped Nashville International Airport reconstruct its
oldest runway to enhance aircraft and passenger safety. Its work included the
performance of analysis, geometric and pavement design, and development of
construction documents for the portion of the project south of the crosswind
runway. The $24 million project included the design of all new Portland cement
concrete aircraft pavement, 35-foot-wide asphalt shoulders, airfield guidance
signs, and runway guard lights.
Using Bentley design tools enhanced team collaboration, allowing the firm to
meet the Federal Aviation Administration’s accelerated schedule, efficiently
complete the design work, and meet the engineering contract budget. Garver
completed 90 percent of the plans in just three weeks. Notably, 100 percent of
the existing runway concrete was crushed and reused as a base course for the
Sitech Services B.V.
Sustainable Site Operation With SiteView
Sitech Services provides infrastructure and asset management at the Chemelot
industrial park in Geleen, Netherlands. More than 80 chemical companies
occupy the 800-hectare campus, along with more than 30 chemical-related
plants and installations that share facilities including the fire brigade and power
plant. Sitech’s asset management system saves costs and reduces incidents of
The complex infrastructure includes a dense network of cable and piping so
strict change management procedures apply for safety reasons. All of the site
assets, including objects above and below ground, are registered in SiteView.
The application consists of a third-party centralized geometrical data store,
tightly integrated with Bentley software for design and for gas and electric
utilities to register and maintain the cables and piping assets.
