The firm served as lead counsel to the City of Atlanta on the construction of a 5th 9,000 foot runway at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. This $1.2 billion project consisted of two elements. The first element was a traditional paved runway built on nearly 19 million cubic yards of fill material brought to the site by a conveyor system. The second element was a bridge in the middle of the runway that spans an interstate highway, the only active runway that spans an interstate highway. The bridge was built using the design-build delivery method with the remainder of the runway built using the design-bid-build method. The bridge is so wide that it is considered a tunnel. As lead counsel to the City on this project, the firm provided day-to-day legal advice to the construction management team regarding delay/acceleration issues, scope changes, and other related contract claims. The project was completed on schedule and under budget.
