Kilwex have completed a number of airfield pavement (taxiways/ links/ stands) reconstruction projects at Dublin, Shannon and Cork Airports in recent years.
These projects typically comprise excavation and replacement of life-expired airfield pavement with new pavement quality concrete/ high-specification flexible pavement, dependant on site possession periods. Other works included are replacement/ upgrading of existing drainage/ attenuation systems, site services such as electrical medium/ low and ELV systems, High Mast Lighting, airfield ground lighting (AGLs), illuminated signage, surface markings and permanent and temporary jet
blast fencing. The work takes place in a phased manner, due to consistent high demand for aircraft stands and taxiing routes, and delivery on programme as well as high quality finish are of critical importance. The company ensures that it maintains high standards in these areas whilst avoiding any disruption to busy airfield operations during a period of very high growth for the client and its stakeholders.
Kilwex have adopted the DAA’s “Hold Point” quality system for various stages of these project works and incorporated it into its own ISO-accredited Quality System.
