Airports require a distinct, unique type of electrical contractor to work at their facilities.
Due to the enormous investment in equipment and aircraft, airports have their own type of safety rules and regulations, work rules and requirements and working hours.
Westmoreland Electric has performed several projects at the Pittsburgh International Airport. The first project involved installing new fire alarm systems in every out-building on their campus, including cargo buildings, hangers, office buildings, maintenance facilities and the remote field vaults. All of these systems were tied together with over 20,000 feet of outdoor fiber optic cable installed in underground ductbanks. Every fire alarm device in every building responded back to the main control room in the Landside Building for monitoring of the entire facility.
Another project we performed at PIA was the installation of runway and taxiway lighting in a portion of the airfield. We installed over a hundred taxiway lights, as shown on these pictures, in our contract. The work involved a great deal of saw cutting, surveying and concrete work, all to tolerances of +/- ¼”. The project was a fast tract project that involved several shifts per week.
The following links shown below will give you an idea of our broad range of capabilities by highlighting the projects we have worked on in the last decade. Each link has been separated into certain industry segments. Clicking on that segment will showcase the projects we have performed recently in each of the segments. Many of the projects will have additional links to descriptions of work, contact references, pictures, letters of recommendation and awards the project may have won.
