The following highlights a selection of our team’s experience

Logan International Airport, Terminal E Modernization | Boston, MA 

Supporting AECOM, PMA and Massport, Dharam Consulting has been instrumental in advising the design team and client on the expected cost of the project since December 2017. We have helped build a live target model to assist in the rightsizing of the project design. Dharam has worked from concept through to present 60% design and is now working with the construction manager in continuing the live cost estimating process.

Logan International Airport, Terminal B Expansion + Renovation | Boston, MA Massport Parsons Brinkerhoff + AECOM | 265,000 SF | $135 million

Dharam performed complete Concept to CD/ BID cost estimating, including 30% and 60% design estimates for all trades, examined costs by funding source and TVD area breakout, reconciled and increased budget per our concept estimate, and undertaken Concept to CD/ BID cost estimating. The expansion included CBIS, CBRA, TSA, United Airlines, Club Lounges and central Massport areas, complete MEP and infrastructure replacement, façade upgrades, entrance upgrades, baggage handling facilities to support changes, significant FIDS and BIDS scope.

Logan International Airport, CBIS Recapitalization/Optimization Project | Boston, MA | Massport, Parsons Brinkerhoff + AECOM I 100,000 SF

Checked baggage inspection systems (CBIS) relocation and re-configuration project entailed various improvements to the CBIS in seven separate bag rooms at the airport. Re-configuration of baggage handling systems and all associated demo and MEP infrastructure to mobilize the projects, including baggage scanning units.

Goddard Space Flight Center | Greenbelt, MD

New Flight Projects Building project at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. The building, designed by AECOM, was designed to bring in light and includes a “green” roof. The new building is approximately 120,000 SF, with four stories of office space and a mechanical penthouse on the roof. The interior design includes the use of removable partitions that will allow for ultimate flexibility and reorganization of staff as needs change.

Airports are becoming ever more complex and we can expect to see an even greater reliance on technology for the design and building of future facilities. Dharam Consulting has full understanding of airport project delivery methods and their technical and regulatory challenges. We use our skills to carefully manage risks and exploit opportunities, and work with our aviation clients to deliver successful projects under various procurement methods. We  are experienced working with top tier clients including developers, designers and architects on a wide variety of projects incorporating technology and sustainable design.

Our cost and risk management services provide specialized expertise across the airport project life cycle to reduce client risk, improve value and deliver positive outcomes for airport owners and operators. Throughout planning and procurement, we establish cost effective budgets to inform client funding requirements and the project business case; analyze risks presented by the project and provide risk transfer and mitigation reviews; assess regulatory requirements, provide design review oversight, and assess capital expenditure programs, including schedule and project costs, provide procurement and bid management advice, including due diligence on design-builder and operator capabilities.

We recognize that contract management is essential for project success from pre-operative state until asset transfer. Post contract, we provide commercial management services, monitoring contracts throughout the project phases, ensuring continued performance and the delivery of project value for money.

London Heathrow, Terminal 5, Concourse C | London, UK

Terminal 5C is Heathrow Terminal 5’s second satellite building, completing the development. The project added 12 pier-served stands – eight of which were able to accommodate new generation aircraft such as the A380. T5C is designed in the same mould as the main building and T5B. Its predominantly glazed exterior optimizes the use of natural light, while also providing passengers with extensive views of the airfield.

T.F. Green Runway & EMAS Expansion | Warwick, RI

Provided budget reconciliation and adjustments to enhance the safety areas and efficiency of runways. The project installed an Engineered Materials Arrestor System (EMAS) for Runway 16, a system designed to quickly slow down and then stop an aircraft should the aircraft overrun the end of a runway. The EMAS bed at Runway 16 end measures 255 feet x 170 feet and consists of 2,646 blocks, built to order specifically for the Green Airport Expansion Program.
