The Englobe pavement engineering team developed and implemented the MicroPAVER Pavement Management System currently used at the Greater Toronto Airports Authority’s Toronto – Pearson International Airport (TPIA) and has completed all of the associated pavement condition survey updates and reporting for this system since its implementation in 2002. Our current assignment continues through to the end of the 2018 and includes pavement condition inspections and MicroPAVER database updating. Englobe also developed the Bridge Management System at TPIA. Specialized field testing equipment includes a Dynatest 8081 High-Capacity Falling Weight Deflectometer which is used for pavement structural condition evaluation, including ACN/PCN determinations for airside pavements. Englobe also has a unique Multi-Function Vehicle that is equipped with a non-contact digital laser Profilometer, a laser crack measuring system (LCMS), GPS, video and still cameras and all the ancillary computer hardware needed to perform pavement condition and asset management surveys. The Englobe GTA main laboratory is fully-certified by the Canadian Council of Independent Laboratories (CCIL) for testing of soils, rock, aggregates, concrete and asphalt materials.
Englobe has most recently completed pavement evaluations and design and rehabilitation recommendations for airside and groundside pavements at Toronto Pearson International Airport Runway 05-23, Muskoka Airport, Gore Bay-Manitoulin Airport, Kapuskasing Airport, Collingwood Airport, and Region of Waterloo International Airport. Englobe provides airfield pavement evaluation, pavement design and quality control materials testing services as part of an Airfield Engineering Consulting Services Standing Offer with Deference Construction Canada at various airfield locations across Canada. We recently completed materials testing for Hangar 7 and Main Apron pavement surfaces at 3rd Wing Bagotville, QC as part of this standing offer agreement, and are currently providing materials testing services at Ottawa MacDonald Cartier International Airport for the Taxiway Charlie and Bravo Reconstruction and Runway 25 Simplified Short Approach Lighting System.
