When you look to your organization’s future, having a solid plan of action can easily become overwhelming. With growth and reliability at the forefront of your vision for the future, we know how delicate each stage can be from planning and designing to implementing your plan. J|D’s Planning division bring years of experience performing consulting services in airport master planning, strategic and operational planning, and environmental and technical planning at small-, medium-, and large-hub commercial airports throughout the country.
Master & On-Call Planning
Master Planning and On-Call Planning is our sweet spot. With extensive experience at major international hubs, our team is equipped to handle extensive planning and on-call duties. Our experience includes contracts with small, medium and large hub airports.
Forecasting & Analytics
Airport planning starts with a strong understanding of existing airline behavior and potential future changes. Future actions taken by airlines drive different potential demand scenarios that airports need to be prepared to accommodate. Our forecasts reflect various future scenarios by combining historical and existing airline activity, background regional economic growth, and current industry trends to develop future design day flight schedules which inform facility needs throughout the airport.
Today, airports have access to more data than ever before from airline activity data to passenger spending habits to ground transportation movements. New sensors create data streams whose value is optimized when the data is incorporated into reports and live-feed dashboards. Our analytics team embraces these big datasets and can transform available data into actionable information.
Airfield & Airspace
Oftentimes, what makes their journey so effortless is mindful planning for safety and pollution prevention. Our team is committed to improving every aspect of the journey for the traveling public. In our work we have completed tasks ranging from storm water pollution prevention to leveling airfield elevations to building safety management systems. Our legacy is what got us to this point, but we understand the responsibility of caring for what we have so that travelers can continue to enjoy comfort and safety in the future.
Landside & Terminal
Improving the journey for travelers involves many moving pieces of an airport. Their journey begins the moment they arrive and how they arrive impacts the travel experience. From reliable shuttles to intuitive wayfinding, our Landside & Terminal services will provide smooth transitions for travelers so they can reach their destinations without stress and our clients can enjoy the benefits of a seamlessly designed customer experience.
ALP & AGIS
Airport Layout Planning and Airport GIS provide a unique planning experience focused on the footprint of an airport. We take into account topographic elevation contours, planimetric features, and airfield obstacle locations to thoughtfully plan environmentally sustainable solutions that allow airports to maintain and grow their facilities.
A key element of successful airport planning is understanding FAA guidelines and experience meeting those requirements. Our knowledgeable team is fully equipped to guide clients to successfully meeting FAA standards. As an FAA On-Call Contractor, serving FAA-Headquarters, J|D staff have an intimate understanding of FAA processes at the Headquarter, Regional, and ADO levels. Whether conducting planning and preliminary design using AC 150/5300-13A-Airport Design, preparing environmental documents in accordance with NEPA, conducting risk assessments under Order 5200.11, or updating and following ARP SOP 2.0-Standard Procedure for FAA Review and Approval – we know the process.
