Dallas, Texas, USA, 12 October 2020 – Fugro has been awarded a 5-year contract by the City of Dallas Department of Aviation to provide quality assurance testing services for all upcoming construction projects at Dallas Love Field Airport, Dallas Executive Airport, and Dallas Vertiport. With 40 years of regional experience, Fugro’s materials engineering and testing capabilities will help the city build its aviation projects in a safe, sustainable and efficient manner.
Work on the contract will begin early next year with two extensive runway rehabilitations at Dallas Love Field Airport.
