Design of New C-II Classified Airport Brings Added Economic Investment to Community
Croy was selected in March 2018 to take over as prime consultant for the existing Griffin-Spalding County Airport (6A2), as well as the development of a new airport in the City of Griffin. Croy has completed a Supplemental Environmental Assessment document for the new airport that has received final approval with the Federal Aviation Administrations (FAA).
As a part of this new facility, Croy has assisted the Airport Authority with the development of an Airport Financial Plan projecting anticipated costs, such as terminal and hangar development and tenant relocations, operational costs, and anticipated revenue to go back to the Airport Authority.
Additionally, our team performed a value engineering update to the Airport Layout Plan (ALP), as well as reconfigured the airside and terminal areas to reflect the most fiscally responsible layout, therefore allowing for future growth and development at the airfield. Croy has also performed a capital improvement budget analysis as a part of this project and updated the Capital Improvement Plan.
For the existing airport, our Croy team is designing a crack seal and remark of the airfield pavements. Croy also prepared two FAA Land Release packages for the sale of property currently unused by the existing airport to assist with the local funding requirements associated with the development of the new facility.
Croy helped the Authority obtain a grant for $8.5 million for utility coordination. Croy has finalized the ALP update and is currently assisting with the procurement of the next grant for the final design of the first new airport in Georgia since 2008.
