Tetra Tech Coffey brings together the technical solutions and expertise to enhance aviation operational capability.

Leveraging a wealth of international airport and facilities experience, our teams bring a multidisciplinary approach to aviation projects. We are well versed in aviation policies, procedures and safety management manual, and a number of our staff hold Aviation Security Identification Cards.

Our project managers have worked extensively on aviation sector projects, in both commercial and military environments. From major terminal developments or refurbishments and fit-outs, hangar developments, aprons, taxiways and runways, security screening and baggage handling, car parks, commercial buildings, automated check-in and passport control projects, we can add value to every aspect of airport operations.

Our geotechnical team are specialists in pavement and building foundation design. Our engineers and technicians deliver foundation design for terminals, hangers, maintenance buildings, as well as the design of rigid and flexible pavements for runways, taxiways, and apron upgrades. We can advise on pavement failures and remediation works to minimise costly downtime.

We are expert in managing the environmental and social impacts of projects as well as the ongoing operation of an airport. We navigate the relevant regulatory approvals process with clients to identify and manage environmental risks, optimise social and environmental performance, and demonstrate compliance and corporate responsibility.

We develop environmental management plans to integrate into client’s facilities, helping to enhance the management of occupational hygiene compliance requirements. For our clients, this means reduced liability costs, improved revenue generation, and improvement for both the social and human environment. Further, our environmental scientists and engineers can manage any ground contamination issues with assessment, monitoring, or remediation services.

The projects we have worked on range span both government and commercial airport operations, including the Brisbane Airport Corporation new parallel runway Project in Brisbane, Australia; the Christchurch International Airport terminal upgrade project in Christchurch, New Zealand; and the Cairns Domestic Terminal Redevelopment in Cairns, Australia.

For the Australian Department of Defence, we project managed a wide range of airfield infrastructure for the R8000 Facilities Requirement for the New Air Combat Capability at RAAF Base Williamtown and RAAF Base Tindal.
