Project Overviewx

At HDL, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional engineering services to our clients. We have been working with Merrill Field Airport in Anchorage, Alaska since 2001, and during this time, we have held four multi-year engineering term agreements with the airport. Our partnership with the Municipality of Anchorage has been a successful one, and we have completed more than 90 task orders for the airport during this time.

Our services for Merrill Field Airport have been diverse and have included everything from FAA coordination to site evaluations, preliminary engineering, surveying, geotechnical, Storm Water Pollution Prevention plans, CSPPs, detailed design, PS&E preparation, and construction management services. Our team of experts has been able to provide a comprehensive range of services to meet the unique needs of Merrill Field Airport.

One of the most significant projects we have completed for Merrill Field Airport was the multi-million dollar runway rehabilitation project. This project involved significant planning and coordination, and our team worked to complete this project on time and within budget, ensuring that the airport could continue to operate smoothly.

We have also completed smaller projects for Merrill Field Airport, such as boiler and roof replacements for airport-owned buildings. While these projects may seem small in comparison to the runway rehabilitation project, they are just as important to the smooth running of the airport. Our team understands this, and we approach every project, no matter the size, with the same level of dedication and attention to detail.

In addition, one of the things that sets HDL apart from other engineering firms is our commitment to innovation. We are always looking for new and creative ways to solve problems and improve the efficiency of our projects. The apron improvements project above the closed Merrill Field Landfill is just one example of how we have been able to provide innovative solutions to complex problems. Our team of experts worked closely with the airport to come up with a solution that was both practical and cost-effective, ultimately resulting in a successful project outcome.

Our partnership with Merrill Field Airport is a testament to our commitment to excellence, and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
