Delivery Method Design-Build

As the design-build prime contractor, KEAR was contracted to complete the design and installation of fuel hydrant relocations for new passenger boarding bridge layouts on A, B & C Concourses at Nashville International Airport. The existing passenger boarding bridges were original to the construction of the terminal building and exceeded their useful life and were replaced. Consequently, associated fuel hydrants will have to be relocated based on the proposed layouts for the new Passenger Boarding Bridges. The locations of the relocated fuel hydrants needed to be in an area where the operation was most efficient and safe for the fueling operation. As the design-builder KEAR executed all design phase services including permitting, phasing planning, site survey, budgeting and preparation of construction documents based on the design criteria. The construction phase of the project included the installation of 31 new fuel hydrant pits on A, B & C Concourses, associated lateral piping, new double block & bleed valves at several locations inside of existing vaults and the complete flushing and testing of all installed components. KEAR coordinated all aspects of the design and construction phases of this project to maintain fuel system operations at all times without operational impacts.
