Garver's Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA) Electrical Study won the top award in Category A: Studies, Research, and Consulting Engineering Services.

XNA has experienced significant growth in the past decade and has modified and expanded its electrical systems to keep pace. Airport officials sought Garver’s professional services to ensure that its electrical systems are code compliant. The airport requested Garver’s expertise to ensure a safe workplace by performing an arc flash analysis, an electrical code compliance study, and an overcurrent protection coordination study.

Accepting the award were Garver Director of Aviation Mike Griffin and Aviation Team Leader Keith Tencleve, XNA Facilities Manager Steve Keith, and Garver Project Manager Bart Gilbreath and Senior Designer Mike Massey.

Garver's Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport Underground Utility Relocations project won the top award in Category B: Building/Technology Systems.

The airport is redeveloping its main terminal building. Garver provided Phase 1 services to make sure existing underground utilities were fully described, determined, and relocated prior to construction. Multiple utilities had to be relocated to new concrete-encased duct banks. Also, these various systems had to be almost completely installed and ready for system cutovers—most of these systems cannot be down except for a few hours maximum. The project was a fast-track design, and it was constructed under the budget estimate.

Accepting the award were Garver Project Manager Adam Roberson and Senior Project Manager Eric Farmer, Clinton National Airport Director - Properties, Planning, and Development Tom Clarke, and Garver Director of Aviation Mike Griffin.
