Essex completed a major renovation and addition to the Eugene Airport, one of the busiest buildings in our community, with over 900,000 passengers arriving and departing in 2015. We worked closely with the airport’s management to understand how to accommodate the necessary activities that must take place while we improved our airport for the future. Our phasing for the airport incorporated multiple projects, numerous suppliers and subcontractors, during all hours of the day and night, through over three acres of building.

We constructed the replacement electrical system late at night so we could disconnect the entire building from the original service and connect to the new system without disrupting airport operations. Numerous unknowns were uncovered and managed in order to complete this project.
