The Advanced Project Delivery™ method has fashioned the way for the Thornton Tomasetti-LeJeune team on numerous successful large and complex projects. Results have been better coordination and an improved project schedule.

Here's How

Creative design is just the beginning. What also sets us apart is our holistic approach. We leverage our complementary services and extensive aviation experience to devise multidisciplinary strategies for project design. This way of working yields benefits greater than the sums of their parts. Through continuous collaboration with the project team, we develop and apply the latest computational modeling techniques and workflows to speed design thinking and parametric design. This enables us to craft solutions that minimize weight, simplify fabrication and erection, and are purpose-built to address the specific site constraints of each project. We see to every detail to ensure that project delivery is as efficient and elegant as possible while realizing the architectural vision and functional requirements.

We also design the support facilities that are essential to the operation of any airport, such as aircraft maintenance hangars, ground equipment maintenance facilities, cargo handling facilities, parking garages, and even police stations and airport rescue and firefighting (ARFF) stations.
