The Lafayette Regional Airport is a primary commercial non-hub airport serving the Acadiana region of Louisiana, annualizing more than 500,000 passengers. The airport encompasses approximately 1,116 acres over four separate tracts of land. The current passenger terminal is a two-story building with approximately 62,000 SF and parking spaces for 899 automobiles located directly in front of the terminal building.
A Terminal Area Study was completed in early 2013 and subsequent Master Plan Update in 2015. Each study identified the need for a complete Terminal Program, including a new terminal facility with supporting infrastructure, as well as additional safety, capacity, security, and noise projects for airfield and landside sustainability. Heery has assembled a multi-disciplinary team experienced with a variety of phased projects in complex airport operation environments that possess specialized national and international technical aviation industry expertise and knowledge for best management practices for construction and airport regulations.
Heery's scope includes program management and construction management, which included constructability reviews, independent design reviews, independent cost and/or fee analysis as well as feasibility and benefit cost analysis studies. The Heery project team will provide program support services such as developing overall construction contract sequencing and packaging strategies, document control management system, design and airport standards, and policies and procedures. The team will also be responsible for developing, analyzing, and monitoring project and program schedules at various levels of detail.
Key components of this program include the following:
