Los Angeles World Airports Taxiway D-10 Rehab
Los Angeles World Airport’s Terminal 3 and Taxiway D-10 Rehab was a 2 phase project. Each phase of the project was completed two weeks ahead of time primarily due to Sully-Miller’s rigorous round-the-clock, 7 days per week work schedule as well as their self-imposed commitment to total project execution by the Thanksgiving holiday - rather than the planned completion of Christmas 2012.
Scheduled for seven months, beginning at the end of May 2012 through December 2012, Phase1’s project was Terminal 3 at LAX, built in the 1960’s. Broken concrete and antiquated fuel lines that no longer conform to today’s airplane designs required repair and replacement. The existing asphalt was replaced with PCC slabs. Fuel lines were excavated repaired or replaced and relocated. Sully Miller completed the work in 5 ½ months – just before the Thanksgiving holiday, ensuring the airport had full use of its facilities for the holiday season.
Phase 2 focused on the main centerline of Taxilane D-10 - a small taxiway between Terminal 3 and Tom Bradley International Terminal. Tom Bradley Terminal had undergone renovations as well as an expansion over the past 5 years. The increased taxiway traffic combined with age and under designed pavement caused rutting, cracking and other distress symptoms. Sully-Miller reconstructed the taxilane with PCC P501 and Asphalt P401; finishing 2 weeks earlier than the 4 weeks allocated.
The success of this project stemmed on the trusting relationship between LAWA and Sully-Miller Contracting Company as well as Sully-Miller’s ability to meet and exceed all deadlines.
“Outstanding performance by a great company”
“Sully-Miller performed high quality work under complicated phasing due to airport operation requirements and they finished the project under approved schedule. Sully-Miller managed all their subcontractors in timely manner. They exercised any given opportunity to shorten the construction duration and assured that all performed work met high airport quality requirements. It was a pleasure doing business with Sully-Miller.”
