Prince George Airport

Prince George Airport’s goal is to be a North American cargo gateway and distribution center to and from Asia with up to 15,000 fuel stop landings per year and to be a passenger hub to North America and the world.

Prince George Airport’s runway was expanded from 7,400 feet to 11,500 feet, making it the third longest commercial runway in Canada after airports in Vancouver and Calgary. The airport is now capable of landing, refueling, and loading/unloading the wide-bodied Boeing 767 and 747 aircraft that trans-Pacific cargo and logistics carriers operate.

Client: Northern Development

Scope

Mapping of foundations, walls, and utility lines and utilization of advanced technology and topographic data to calculate the volume of materials for filling, grading, and excavation. Monthly and weekly site surveys were conducted to monitor the development against the project timeline.
