Capital Project Management

Airports, by their nature, are dynamic and complicated businesses. Demands on infrastructure are always heavy and often require renovation/expansion due to life cycle depletion or new technologies in the business. Having done many billions of dollars of airport construction work, the Houston Airport System (HAS) offers a menu of Project Management Services that can make any given airport project less difficult for the Owner and less complicated for the Owner's design/construction team.

Project Management Service Philosophy

The continuum for defining a project, planning, designing, and implementing construction and commissioning must be controlled. All activities must be governed by airport safety and security regulations as projects proceed. Our governing philosophy is kept simple for all project participants to appreciate.

HAS allows project participants to succeed in the timely application of their expertise by regulating scopes of work, budget and schedule in a manner that is risk adverse and safe for the Owner, project participants, and the public, our customers.
