At Stelic, we understand the importance that aviation facilities play in the global transportation network and are committed to delivering projects that meet the highest standards of safety, efficiency, and passenger experience. Whether you’re building a new greenfield airport, expanding an existing terminal, or upgrading air traffic control systems, our team has a proven track record of delivering aviation projects of various scales, from small general aviation airports to large-scale, multi-billion dollar international hubs that serve as gateways to the world.

We Understand Aviation


Understanding of the intricate network of regulations and standards governing aviation construction projects, including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Advisory Circulars, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Security Guidelines, and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standards and Recommended Practices, ensuring strict compliance and operational safety.


Knowledgeable in aviation facilities that optimize passenger experience, aircraft operations, and logistical functionality.


Experience navigating the complex permitting and approval processes associated with aviation projects, including airport master planning, environmental impact assessments, and coordination with federal, state, and local aviation authorities.


Insights in design practices, such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), energy-efficient building systems, and green building certification (e.g., LEED, Envision), to create aviation facilities that are environmentally responsible, cost-effective, and compliant with the Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Carbon Accreditation program and the FAA’s Sustainable Master Plan Pilot Program.


Experience in a wide range of aviation facilities, including passenger terminals, air traffic control towers, hangars, cargo facilities, and ground support equipment (GSE) maintenance facilities, each adhering to specific operational, safety, and technical requirements, such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 415 Standard on Airport Terminal Buildings, Fueling Ramp Drainage, and Loading Walkways.


Develop phased construction plans and temporary facilities that minimize disruption to ongoing airport operations, utilizing construction safety and phasing plans (CSPPs) and collaborating closely with airport stakeholders to ensure the continuity of critical aviation functions and passenger safety throughout the construction process.


Understanding of aviation construction that prioritizes flexibility and adaptability, incorporating modular design principles, expandable infrastructure, and technology-ready spaces to accommodate future changes in passenger volume, aircraft types, and security protocols.


Track record of delivering aviation projects that meet the highest standards of quality, safety, and performance, with a rigorous quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) process that includes constructability reviews, commissioning, and compliance audits to ensure adherence to all relevant codes, standards, and industry best practices, such as the FAA’s Safety Management System (SMS) and the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) guidance documents.


Manage the complex coordination and logistical challenges associated with aviation construction, using project management tools, such as Oracle Primavera and ASTA Powerproject, and lean construction principles to optimize resource allocation, minimize waste, and ensure the seamless integration of specialized aviation systems, such as baggage handling systems (BHS), passenger boarding bridges (PBBs), and aircraft fueling systems.


We work closely with our aviation clients to develop solutions that align with their unique operational requirements, growth projections, and financial objectives, employing life cycle cost analysis, operational readiness and airport transfer (ORAT) methodologies, and risk assessment techniques to optimize the long-term performance, capacity, and resilience of each aviation facility, while ensuring strict adherence to safety, security, and customer service standards.
