For almost two decades, the Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) has relied on VHB to provide environmental permitting, stormwater management, and wetlands mitigation services. Working closely with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and RIAC, VHB prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the T.F. Green Airport improvements program, which included safety improvements, a runway extension, and demolition of a historic hangar. The VHB team developed the Airport Drainage Master Plan for T.F. Green Airport, which involved a due diligence approach to evaluate the accuracy of data previously collected and to develop an illustrative Geographic Information System (GIS) database of the findings.
Our work with RIAC has also included providing engineering and permitting services to facilitate the reconstruction of Runway 16-34 and support of updating the Airport Master Plan, in addition to providing strategic on-call planning and environmental services for all RIAC airports.
