Granite has won a $10 million deal to build vertical landing pads and taxiway segments at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, California.
The project is part of a $495m contract to renovate and repair airfields at various government installations in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico.
In conjunction with Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Southwest and the Army Corps of Engineers, Granite will construct high temperature vertical landing pads and taxiway segments that connect existing runways and taxiways to vertical landing pads. The work includes demolition of existing pavement, site clearing and grubbing, grading and placement of fill material, site drainage improvements, cement-treated subgrade, cement-treated base material, and high temperature concrete placement, as well as airfield striping and electrical improvements. Environmental mitigation includes contaminated soil handling, bio-monitoring, and stream bed restoration.
Construction will be completed by spring 2020.
