ACEC Recognizes Clark Airport Lighting Project

The American Council of Engineering Companies of Missouri recently awarded Garver an Engineering Excellence Award in the Small Projects category for work done on M. Graham Clark Airport’s Runway Lighting Rehabilitation project in Branson, Missouri.

The project goal was to address an ailing runway lighting system, which is a necessity during nighttime flight operations. Careful design consideration of the unique terrain along the runway as well as the rock embankments at each runway end was a must to provide both a safe construction environment as well as a safe and long-lasting finished product. By replacing aging equipment, correcting the lighting layout to the most current FAA standards, designing robust shallow conduit installations, and installing break-away threshold light structures, the safety of nighttime operations has been greatly increased. With a coordinated effort between the airport and Garver, taking innovative approaches to address the complexities of the runway environment and electrical vault building, an aging electrical system has been updated and will offer years of reliable operation.
