AECOM-led joint venture to provide program management services for Dallas Fort Worth International Airport

Dallas (March 16, 2022) — AECOM (NYSE: ACM), the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm, today announced its Airfield Management Partners joint venture with H.J. Russell & Company, one of the nation’s largest African American-owned construction services businesses, has been selected to provide civil airside program and construction management services for Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). This work supports DFW’s long-term Civil Airside Master Plan as well as near-term strategies that reinforce its emphasis on customer experience.

“We are proud of our strong partnership with DFW, where we’ve delivered nearly $1 billion in civil airside and landside improvements over the last six years,” said Travis Boone, chief executive of AECOM’s U.S. West region. “To build on this legacy, AECOM and H.J. Russell & Company have formed a powerful joint venture that brings together a team of experts with unmatched knowledge of airport processes, existing relationships with key project stakeholders, and hands-on experience meeting DFW’s unique needs.”

The Airfield Management Partners joint venture has been selected to deliver planning and programming, preliminary design, procurement, design management, pre-construction, construction management, and closeout services on a delivery order basis for all phases of airside project development. These projects may include rehabilitation, improvements, and enhancements to infrastructure such as runways, taxiways, utilities, security, signage, airfield support facilities, and airport transit systems.

“As one of the nation’s leading aviation program management consultants, we look forward to providing fine-tuned best practices from our successful work on major international airports combined with our global technical expertise,” said Jennifer Aument, chief executive of AECOM’s global Transportation business. “DFW is at the forefront of airport innovation and we are honored to help deliver its next generation of airfield projects efficiently, safely, and with minimal impacts to active operations.”

DFW is one of the most frequently visited superhub airports in the world. Centered between owner cities Dallas and Fort Worth, it serves as a major job generator for the North Texas region by connecting people through business and leisure travel.
