Naval Air Station Whiting Field

Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC)
Southfield Runway Repairs
52 Weeks

Lagan Construction, LLC was the prime contractor to the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) and the Dept. of the Navy, on the reconstruction and rehabilitation of runways 05-23 and 14-32 at the Southfield. Each runway is 6,000 feet long and 200 feet wide.

Work took place in two distinct phases, each with a six-month duration. During construction Lagan produced and placed over 60,000 tons of hot-mix asphalt (HMA) by installing and operating our ASTEC drummix, portable batch plant at an on-site location designated by NAVFAC. In addition to the HMA works on the runways, Lagan teamed with Asphalt Paving Systems (APS) a local subcontractor to perform 278,000 square yards of cold-in-place recycling, allowing reuse all of the existing runway surface material in correcting cross-section deficiencies. Other local subcontractors performed landscaping, seeding, sodding, pavement markings and remedial works for two large concrete drainage swales. Lagan Construction employed a staff of approximately 35 persons on-site during the execution of the contract and with a total workforce, including subcontractors, in excess of 80 people.
