Aviation Planning and Design

Ulteig’s aviation tradition began in 1970 with a project that pioneered the application of slipform technology for concrete runway overlays. That same year, we were instrumental in obtaining the first airport development grant awarded in the United States. Today, we continue to serve the aviation market, offering a full range of services to air carrier airports, general aviation airports, and military installations.

Our goal is to be our clients’ partner of choice for aviation engineering and planning services. We work closely with our clients to improve their current facilities and leverage future capital improvements to benefit the communities they serve. With a focus on enhancing the economic performance of our airport partners, our highly skilled aviation team provides a full range of services, including financial planning, land-use compatibility planning, environmental studies and assessments, and facility design and construction. We take the time to understand your specific needs and will apply our extensive FAA knowledge and experience in providing innovative and reliable solutions for your airport.
