Project Experience – Trenton Airport

Project Name:Trenton Airport
Contract:TR 0801 10
Location:8 WING TRENTON
Client Name:Department of Defence
Project Description:

Miller completed the East Apron expansion at Canadian Forces Base Trenton for the Department of National Defence (DND), in cooperation with the crown’s administration branch – Defence Construction Canada (DCC). This project is unique to Miller. Recognizing Miller’s leadership within the civil construction industry, this particular project exemplifies the qualities make Miller a market leader. Within five (5) short months this project went from breaking ground to a fully functional airway apron. This was accomplished while incorporating over 80 design changes and an increase in project volume from $14 million to $16 million; all while maintaining the original contract schedule. At the heart of these achievements is the leadership shown by Miller. Through careful market analysis and thoughtful risk assessment Miller was able to procure this contract. This was only the beginning of the challenges. From there Miller pressed on with procurement of the necessary plant and equipment required to complete the work. And have demonstrated the tenacity of Miller to expand into heretofore unknown markets – and to do so successfully. Consequently a team effort was fortified and proceeded with the execution of the many facets involved with the work. Many internal Miller partners were brought together to employ the diversified skill sets needed. These were supplemented by partnerships with outside subcontractors and suppliers. This core group then built a partnering relationship with the owner, the engineers, the inspection staff, many independent operational divisions within the airbase, and outside governing authorities (including both federal and provincial). The outstanding accomplishment of this project was not only in Miller’s ability to complete on time, or to successfully expand into new markets, but to do so in a financially responsible manner. This included exceeding profit expectations; creating flow-through profitability for internal Miller business units; increasing project volumes; successful capital investment recovery; and further diversification into new markets.
