Project Description:

The Air Operations Area (AOA) perimeter on World Way West east of Taxiway AA at Los Angeles International Airport is approximately 5.7 miles in length of which 4 miles is primarily chain link fencing with various base and barb wire topping configurations. LAWA intends to take additional proactive measures and would like to have a minimum fence height of 8 ft, 1” vinyl coated wire mesh, 6 barbed wire strands on top of the fence (V shape, 3 strands on each arm), and maintain minimum clearances of 5 feet on the inside (airside) and 10 feet on the outside (public side) of the AOA perimeter.

VCA’s Role:

VCA engineers provided topographical surveying and civil engineering services for the project. VCA performed a field topographic survey at least 30 feet from either side of the existing fence for the entire length of project (4 miles). The survey included, locating of existing utilities, buildings, structures, walls and etc. For the civil part, VCA prepared constructions documents reflecting the demolition of the existing AOA fence and the installation of temporary and new AOA fence. The design and construction were provided in phases (4 phases) to maintain security at the airport at all times. VCA also provided grading (re-grade either side of fence to mitigate existing drainage pattern) paving and drainage plans. In addition VCA also provided construction assistance for the project.
