• Successful Airport Construction Strategy Summit Held

    May 24, 2018

    ACC joined with ACI-NA, and AGC of America to hold another successful iteration of the Airport Construction Strategy Summit. More than 135 attendees joined us in Philadelphia this past week to discuss airport capital project delivery methods and best practices. As has happened in the past, the summit opened with a level-setting discussion on delivery methods and vocabulary. The remainder of day one featured a number of sessions on different issues within project delivery including teaming, project control technology, and operation readiness and transition, commonly called ORAT. The day closed out with a panel made up of the association representatives, as well as a representative from DBIA, discussing the current make-up of the federal, state, and municipal regulatory landscape.

    Day two saw a number of sessions on the progress of major airport capital programs, including updates from Kansas City, LAX, and Puerto Rico. These update sessions offered participants an opportunity to hear how different airports are approaching hot topics like Public-Private Partnerships and utilizing the different delivery methods. Plans for next year's summit are already being discussed, so plan to join ACC, ACI-NA and AGC in Kansas City late spring!
