AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           January 28, 2008

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution approving a Joint Participation Agreement  with the Florida Department of Transportation for construction of an extension to the FBO aircraft parking ramp at Leesburg International Airport

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends acceptance of the Joint Participation Agreement with FDOT for construction of an extension of the FBO aircraft parking ramp area.

 

Analysis:

The existing FBO aircraft parking ramp area is insufficient to accommodate transit aircraft parking at Leesburg International Airport during peak periods.  It is especially inadequate when two or more large jet aircraft need to park on the ramp at the same time.  Growth of corporate traffic has increased significantly during the last six to seven years. Therefore, additional ramp space is needed.

 

The attached Joint Participation Agreement (JPA) issued by the Florida Department of Transportation will provide for 80% of the funding up to $770,000.00 to build approximately 53,000 square feet of concrete ramp area.  This amount includes the administration fee of $100,000.00 for oversight of the bidding and construction process by the airport engineer (Hanson Professional Services, Inc.) as well as construction costs. 

 

Structurally, the new ramp will support the weight of a Gulfstream V, which is 90,500 lbs. (maximum take off weight).  Concrete has a life expectancy between 30 and 40 years whereas asphalt has a life expectancy of only 20 years. Additionally, asphalt requires a surface treatment every ten (10) years costing $7.00 - $8.00/square feet, using today's prices.  The cost to build the ramp extension is expected to be $667,965.00.  Once the Notice to Proceed is issued, staff expects  the company to take approximately 3½ months to build the ramp.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the JPA with FDOT for construction of the extension of the FBO aircraft parking ramp project.

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
