Back in August 2010, the level of construction activity at San Diego International Airport’s Green Build project was highlighted by foundational pile driving tests, and preparing for the demolition of the second pedestrian bridge standing in the path of a new dual-level road in front of Terminal 2.

When the 460,000-square-foot Green Build expansion officially opens to the traveling public on Aug. 13, the new shops and restaurants just might convince passengers to arrive a bit earlier for their flights.

When developing a project, all parties involved are looking for the best value for their investment.

So the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority called on Nolte Vertical Five (NV5), one of its longtime on-call consultants, for surveying and engineering services.
