The joint venture team of Kwame Building Group, Inc. and HR Green (KWAME/HR Green) was a construction manager for the $7 million taxiway reconstruction project at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.
The reconstruction of the taxiways known as Foxtrot and Juliet includes the removal of 26,000 square yards of existing PCC pavement and replacement with new concrete pavement. The concrete removed from the old taxiway, originally constructed in 1979, was recycled and reused as the base course cap and sub-base layer.
Also included in the project were new drainage systems, 6,700 tons of asphalt shoulders, asphalt service road, security fencing, airfield lighting, airfield directional signage and pavement markings. To avoid disruption of normal operations at the airport, portions of the work were performed at night and on weekends.
KWAME/HR Green completed work on the $9 million reconstruction of the taxiways known as Delta, Echo and November in Fall 2014; and the $9.2 million reconstruction of the taxiway known as Echo and the north apron in Fall 2015.
The general contractor is Millstone Weber. The consulting engineer is Crawford, Murphy & Tilly.
