We are excited to work closely with Timmons Group to create an aesthetically pleasing gateway to the airport that county residents can be proud of.
Richmond, VA (Vocus) April 1, 2009
Timmons Group, an ENR 500 Design Firm and a leader in multi-discipline civil engineering consulting services, announced today that the firm's Landscape Architecture team was awarded a contract by the Chesterfield County Airport to enhance the airport grounds and entryway and create a master gateway plan. Riggs Ward will be collaborating on branding and signage.
There is a need to create a comprehensive identity for the airport entry experience and to modernize wayfinding through use of clear, concise signage, efficient lighting and integration of native plantings. Improving the quality of the entryway and airport grounds will make the important first impression for not only the airport facility but adjoining properties.
Until now, the airport and its surrounding properties have not been treated as a unified complex. By utilizing Timmons Group's expertise to assess existing conditions, integrate sustainable solutions and create a holistic branding plan, the existing grounds will become a unique regional airport facility. Timmons Group will coordinate implementation of this master gateway plan as part of an aviation grant program.
"The County is extremely pleased to move forward with this project and thank Virginia's Department of Aviation for providing the grant opportunity to make this project a reality," said Tom Trudeau, Chesterfield County Airport Manager. "We are excited to work closely with Timmons Group to create an aesthetically pleasing gateway to the airport that county residents can be proud of."
