Ramboll won a competitive tender to supply Sydney International Airport with an air pavement management system. Initially implemented in 2004, Airpave continues to deliver a precise and economic framework for managing the airport’s 3 million sq m of paved assets.

At the time the operator invited tender submissions it was facing some costly maintenance challenges. With some of its pavements more than 30 years old the demand for repair work was increasing. Unexpected closures to taxiways and runways for emergency repairs meant loss of revenue as well as inconvenience to travellers.

Airpave was selected above four other competitors because of its unique flexibility.  Airfield pavement performance is analysed using several indices, including frictional resistance, bearing capacity and surface condition. An appropriate repair programme that addresses the specific performance criteria highlighted is then prepared. Airpave is unique in the industry for offering this depth of analytic precision, ensuring maintenance work is never over-engineered.

We have provided the operator with ongoing training and support including regular software updates. The programme is estimated to have delivered a 30% saving on maintenance costs per year. Airpave has been implemented in numerous other international airports including Athens, Copenhagen, Vienna, Newcastle and Domodedovo, Russia.
