Aviation infrastructure is developed and built with the future in mind
Aviation and air traffic have steadily evolved during the last few decades, as flying has become a part of everyday life and the global economy has revived. A lot of investments have been made on terminals and airport infrastructure, and this development is predicted to continue after the decline caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
In the big picture, aviation infrastructure not only involves building terminals and runways but also a large pile of reports and surveys. The actual infrastructure is tightly integrated with other traffic and logistics networks. In the future, airports will increasingly address issues such as renewable energy production opportunities.
High quality of runways is essential for aviation – disruptions to air traffic must be minimized
Aviation requires much less built infrastructure than, for example, the kilometer-consuming road and rail traffic. However, quality specifications for runways are strict, emphasizing the importance of quality in construction. Other special features of the aviation sector include, among other things, the international environment and the need to minimize disruptions to air traffic as early as during the planning phase. The work requires tight cooperation with stakeholders such as air traffic controllers to enable a smooth-flowing, safe construction. Meticulous coordination of subprojects as to their schedule and quality is also important.
