T-O Engineers was awarded First Place in the Transportation Category of the ACEC of Idaho 2017 Engineering Excellence Awards for our work at Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey, Idaho. The project was also awarded with a “National Recognition Award” at the ACEC National Gala this past April in Washington, DC.
T-O Engineers has served as the airport’s primary engineering consultant for over 20 years. Working with the community, T-O developed a plan to correct the standards deficiencies at the existing airport, to the extent possible. This plan was implemented as one large project, with seven separate contracts. The total project would relocate Taxiway B, the airport’s primary taxiway. Relocation of this taxiway required modifications and relocation of several other facilities on the airport. Construction of the project began in Fall 2013 and needed to be complete no later than December 31, 2015, due to federal requirements.
