DETROIT METROPOLITAN WAYNE COUNTY AIRPORT | RECONSTRUCTION OF RUNWAY 3L-21R & ASSOCIATED TAXIWAYS – PHASE II
The scope of this project includes the reconstruction and rehabilitation of critical infrastructure at the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW). These facilities, which include runways, taxiways, and decicing pads, were originally constructed in the 1950s. During Phase I of the project, the Jacobsen|Daniels Planning Team had two primary tasks in supporting the design and construction of Runway 3L-21R. Construction officially began April 1st, 2019, marking the beginning of Phase II. Construction is expected to be completed in 2020. For this effort, the Jacobsen|Daniels Facilities Team is responsible for construction administration and sustainability tracking.
Specifically, the Jacobsen | Daniels Facilities team monitors daily construction practices to ensure the inclusion of sustainability goals and targets set forth prior to the beginning of construction
to include Zero Waste management, the use of local and regional construction materials, and potable water consumption reduction. The Jacobsen | Daniels team oversees the weekly submission of logs detailing diverted waste, local and regional construction material purchases, and potable water consumption and provides daily and weekly sustainability tracking.
The Runway 3L-21R is pursuing Envision version 2 Certification through the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure. Part of this certification process includes documenting the social and economic impacts of the project on the surrounding community. The Jacobsen | Daniels team is responsible for leading this effort. Specifically, the Jacobsen | Daniels team is working with all project contractors and subcontractors to document their respective contributions for internship and education opportunities related to this project.
