Bermuda International Airport provides regular scheduled international flight service to major cities in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.

This project included preliminary and detailed design and construction inspection, and consisted of two separate parts:

Part 1 - Runway Rehabilitation:  Runway 12-30 is 2,954 m in length and 45 m in width.  The critical aircraft for Runway 12-30 is the Boeing B777.  The largest aircraft to be used for the airport facilities is the Boeing B747.  Several pavement sections of Runway 12-30 were resurfaced during 1999 and 2000.   The scope of work for the Runway 12-30 pavement rehabilitation work generally included milling of the existing pavement, hot mix asphalt concrete resurfacing of the existing runway surface, and application of new runway pavement markings for the remaining 2,500 m of Runway 12-30.

Part 2 - Taxiway and Apron Pavement Assessment Survey: The Bermuda Government Department of Operations ( identified the requirement to prepare a complete Taxiway and Apron Pavement Assessment Survey for the existing airside pavements.  The scope of work generally included preparation of a pavement management plan and summary report based on information obtained from a pavement condition inspection; pavement testing services; HWD pavement analysis; rehabilitation life cycle cost analysis; preliminary cost estimates; and implementation schedule.
