MIA - Tract One Apron Project

The Tract One Area is located within the Northside of the Miami International Airport, and provides aircrafts with a continuous apron, which consists of aircraft moving areas and designated parking positions. BND Engineers, Inc. (BND) provided the Apron/ Pavement, engineering planning design and permitting of utility corridors including, drainage/stormwater, and water/sewer. The project area had a history of flooding which disrupted aircraft and vehicular traffic as well as tenant operations due to improper grading and lack of a proper stormwater/drainage system. BND was also responsible for providing Bid and Award, and Construction Management Services for the project.

Comprised of:

  • Airside Drainage Inlets and Manholes.

  • Reinforced concrete drainage pipes (RCP) varying in sizes from 24 to 60 inches.

  • Exfiltration trenches and drainage inlets for the existing landside parking lot.

  • Airside pollution control system Grit Chambers.

  • Ductile iron (DI) pipes as part of the Pollution Control System.

  • Drainage Oil Water Separators (OWS), for Pollution Control.

  • Drainage connection structures to existing 12 foot by 7 foot and 96 inch box culvert.


The proposed stormwater and pollution control system were designed using the stormwater management modeling software XP- SWMM. XP-SWMM is a link-node model that performs Hydrology, Hydraulics and Quality Analysis of Stormwater Systems. The software package utilizes sophisticated graphical tools together with Geographical Information System (GIS) and CADD.
