Part of: International Air Transportation: A New International Airport

Abstract: Construction of large infrastructure projects has become increasingly rare since the 1960's. In fact, America has not built a new airport since 1974. While sparse funding is certainly a factor, it is also clear that administrative and political considerations form logjams. Engineers must provide more that traditional services to help break free large projects; they must work together with policy makers to get projects off the ground. Early stages of the Denver International Airport project are described below, including site selection, master plan, environmental assessment and obtaining public support through economic impact studies. Suggestions for contracting strategies and schedule relationships are given for each.
