O'Hare Airport Fiber Optic Installation

On November 23, 2009, Crawford Murphy and Tilly, Inc. (CMT) received a notice to proceed to provide the required professional services for the design of a new Fixed Base Operator (FBO) Apron and Site Preparation at Chicago O’Hare International Airport.  The existing location of the Signature Flight Support (SFS) Facilities is impacted by the construction of R/W 9C-27C.  The FBO facility should be in operation before the current facility is demolished to make room for the runway development. 

The project includes the construction of the new FBO apron which connects to the proposed R/W 9C-27C parallel taxiway system and is identified as an enabling project for the construction of new R/W 9C-27C. 

SPAAN Tech performed the design and installation of 4100’ lineal feet of fiber optic cable.  The cable had to cross two major airport access roads and then be located along and in a third major airport access road.  The work included the installation of one manhole, two concrete pads, two cabinets and three patch panels, termination of the cable and restoration of all openings in the parkways and roadways.  This cable connected Guard Post 12 with the remainder of the security force at O’Hare.

SPAAN Tech also designed Guard Post 12 and the Commercial Vehicle Inspection Area (CVIA). Additional scope included the design of all grading, drainage cover utilities, pavements, pavement marking, and Maintenance of Traffic.

SPAAN Tech also provided electrical engineering design for additional CCTV security cameras and electrical design to support construction for Guard Post 12 and hub building.
