Burns & McDonnell has been providing engineering, design and construction services for projects at Garden City Regional Airport since 1997. Completed projects include a terminal expansion hold room for security screening, a 175-kW backup emergency diesel engine generator, the construction of additional terminal area parking, the expansion of snow removal equipment building, and a stormwater pollution prevention plan. Recent projects include:

Runway 17-35
Burns & McDonnell provided services for the rehabilitation of Runway 17-35. The existing runway pavement was designed for 60,000-pound dual-wheeled aircraft. The completed design increased the load-carrying capacity of the runway to nearly 90,000-pound dual-wheeled.

Taxiway A
Burns & McDonnell provided engineering services for the reconstruction of Taxiway A and the four connecting taxiways to Runway 17-35. Approximately 9,300 feet of existing concrete pavement and base courses was removed and replaced with portland cement concrete (PCC) and a cement-treated permeable base. Edge lighting and an underdrain system were also included. The completed design increased the pavement width of the taxiways from 35 feet to 50 feet, and also increased the load bearing capacity from 60,000 pounds to 90,000 pounds (dual wheel).
