SCOPE OF WORK
AIRPORT LAYOUT PLAN UPDATE
An Airport Layout Plan Update will be accomplished by (Airport Owner). This scope of services identifies requisite elements necessary to update the existing Airport Layout Plan (ALP) Drawing Set and Narrative Report on file for (Airport Name). By completing this Scope of Work, the documents required for Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) review and conditional approval of future airport development plans will be created.
This update will follow guidelines contained in FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 150/5070-6B, Airport Master Plans, Chapter 10 “Airport Layout Plan” and Appendix F “ALP Drawing Set” and will identify improvements necessary to accommodate aviation activity 20 years into the future. An ALP Drawing Set and Narrative Report will be the final products of this study.
The Narrative Report will explain the reasoning behind and the important features of the ALP Drawing Set, and document the planning standards used. The report will consist of the following sections:
Airport Layout Plans, and
Capital Improvement Plan.
The scope of services for this ALP Update are outlined below as Elements of Work and are described in more detail AC150/5070-6B.
ELEMENT 1: EXISTING CONDITIONS
Pertinent data from the FAA, GDOT, and other available sources will be collected and compiled. This will include both data relative to (Airport Name) and the surrounding community (such as land use plans and zoning regulations).
Known environmental considerations will be noted during the Inventory; however, a detailed environmental overview of potential impacts will only be prepared as a separate Environmental Assessment.
(A description of current available topographic mapping will be summarized and the need for addition mapping will be identified to address topographic and obstruction survey needs to accomplish the ALP Update requirements.)
ELEMENT 2: FORCASTS
Socio-economic projections, past trends, and existing FAA and GDOT forecasts will be reviewed and analyzed. The analysis will result in either the re-validation of a past forecast or the establishment of newer simplified forecasts including:
Based aircraft by type and number;
Local/itinerant and total operations; and,
Operations by activity type.
Forecasts will be forwarded to the GDOT for review and approval. Once approved, Element 3 will be initiated.
ELEMENT 3: FACILITY REQUIREMENTS
The re-validation of the existing and future critical aircraft anticipated to use (Airport Name) over the course of the planning period (20 years) will be identified. This will then provide the airport design standards as defined in the FAA AC 150/5300-13, Airport Design; Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 77; other FAA ACs and Orders as appropriate. This element will be critical in the development of the ALP drawing set and will consider the following requirements:
Wind coverage (to verify appropriate crosswind coverage);
Runway and taxiway width;
Consideration of pavement needs and strength required;
All appropriate runway to taxiway design standards;
FAR Part 77 Imaginary Surfaces; and,
Instrument approach and lighting needs.
Additional analysis will be conducted to determine the requirements for the following facilities:
T-hangar and open bay hangar space;
Tie-down and transient aircraft apron;
Weather reporting capability;
Maintenance requirements; and,
ELEMENT 4: ALTERNATIVE ANALYSIS
Alternative development layouts will be produced on an as-needed basis, depending on the findings of the facility requirements. Any and all alternatives developed will comply with the applicable FAA design standards. A maximum of two (2) alternative layouts will be evaluated for each element analyzed. (Airport Owner) will describe each alternative and the rational for the selected alternative for inclusion in the ALP Update.
ELEMENT 5: AIRPORT LAYOUT PLANS
The ALP drawing set will be produced in accordance with Appendix F of FAA Advisory Circular 150/5070-6B, ALP Drawing Set. All drawings will be prepared in AutoCAD digital drawing format. Shading and other techniques will be used to indicate the phasing of airport improvement projects. The ALP Drawing Set will include topographic information obtained from GDOT, USGS mapping, and other available data obtained from (state mapping identified from Element 1). Drawings to be included in the drawing set are as follows:
Title Sheet - This sheet serves as the plan set cover sheet and provides information to include the airport name, owner/operator, location, and plan set preparer. An index of drawings, graphic representations of the airport location (Scale 1”=500,000” or aeronautical sectional chart), and airport vicinity (Scale 1”=24,000” or USGS 7-minute quadrangle map) will also be presented on the title sheet.;
Airport Layout Drawing;
Terminal Area Drawing;
Inner Portion of the Approach Surface Drawing;
Airport Airspace Drawing; and,
Airport Property Map.
Runway Departure Surfaces Drawing
ELEMENT 6: CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN
This task will update the Airport Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) that is submitted to the FAA and GDOT annually. The CIP lists costs and timeframes of planned improvements at AJR and is required by outside agencies when applying for Federal and State funding assistance.
Developments recommended over the 20-year planning period will be classified in three general development phases. These phases represent the short (5 years), intermediate (10 years), and long-term (20 years) planning periods. The development costs will be broken into amounts eligible for Federal and State funding programs and amounts requiring local participation. Particular focus will be given to detailing estimated costs for short-term development projects. In the first five years, development costs will be shown on a year-to-year basis and prepared at a level of detail consistent with master planning. A detailed five-year CIP will be provided to the FAA and GDOT, a 20-year CIP will be included in the Narrative Report.
ELEMENT 7: PROJECT DOCUMENTATION
Project documentation (deliverables) will consist of both the ALP Drawing Set and the Narrative Report. The drawing set and report will be produced in draft, and final form.
Initial Draft Submittal to GDOT
(2) reproductions of the Draft Narrative Report and (2) Complete copies of Draft ALP Drawing Set.
Final Draft Submittal to GDOT / FAA Review
(8) Color reproductions of Final Narrative Report, bound with color laminated cover; and
(8) Complete sets of Final ALP Drawings for FAA submittal and approval.
(1) Color reproduction of Final Narrative Report, bound with color laminated cover; and
(1) Complete set of Final ALP Drawings for GDOT approval.
Final Submittal to GDOT
(7) Color reproduction of Final Narrative Report, bound with color laminated cover; and
(7) Complete sets of Final ALP Drawings for GDOT approval. *
*(1) Conditionally Approved and stamped complete set (Narrative & ALP Drawing Set) will be sent by GDOT to FAA, (5) complete sets to (Airport Owner). GDOT will retain (1) complete set.
(1) Copy of final Narrative Report and ALP Drawing Set in pdf format to GDOT.
ELEMENT 8: MEETINGS and COORDINATION
Two (2) meetings with GDOT are assumed for the ALP Update described in this scope of services. (Airport Owner) will coordinate with GDOT officials as necessary during the course of this project in order to clarify requirements, understand needs, and gain consensus on changes necessary.
