Which ones? Did the airport hire you directly? If so, which department? Did the airport’s program manager hire you? Did you work for a consultant? Which department at the airport did you primarily interact with? How many departments did you have to interact directly with? Was the work related to a CIP or general layout? Were records available? Were they all in one place? Were they adequate for your needs? Do they meet your needs better or worse than record drawings available from non-airport clients? Did the airport have record drawings in a searchable document management system? Appendix B SUe Consultant Survey

TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 34: Subsurface Utility Engineering Information for Airports examines ways in which information on subsurface utilities is collected, maintained, and used by airports, their consultants, and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration to help increase the effectiveness of, and enhance safety during, infrastructure development programs at airports.

The report also compares the current state of technology and effective processes from other industry sectors with what airports do today.
