Airport Planning & Design

In the ever-changing airport industry, time is of the essence, and airports require adaptable, cutting-edge solutions. MJ’s innovative culture has led to breakthroughs like the dynamic planning approach and application, which allows clients to analyze impacts of potential changes/projects, well into the future. It is this forward-thinking culture that has also lead MJ to create innovative designs like the nationally-recognized geothermal apron snow-melt system.

When you have worked with as many airport clients as we have, you understand that no two airports are the same. That is why, from funding acquisition through to construction administration, collaboration with our clients is important – it’s what allows us to develop strategic plans and proactive designs tailored to the specific needs and unique vision of each airport. This results in plans and projects that are realistic and constructible, minimizing impact on airport operations and maximizing funding dollars.
