Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and City of Philadelphia, Division of Aviation
VHB completed the Philadelphia International Airport Runway Extension Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in a record 18 months using our innovative environmental streamlining process. Aimed at improving the efficiency of regulatory approvals, VHB’s streamlining process cut months off the project schedule and saved 10 percent of the budget for the client. The Streamlining Agreement was signed by 16 federal and state environmental and cultural resources agencies across three states. As a result of the efforts of the VHB team, the FAA Harrisburg District Office received the Partnering for Excellence Award from the US Secretary of Transportation.
