Sacramento International Airport "Big Build" Terminal Expansion and Modernization

Terminal B

Sacramento County's largest construction project to date, the Sacramento International Airport 1.1 billion-dollar "Big Build" embarked on an aggressive construction schedule hinging on expert support to coordinate the mitigation, permitting, and agency coordination.

ESA, Sacramento County Airport System's on-call natural resource consultant, worked with the client, design team, contractor, and subcontractors to ensure environmental compliance throughout construction. From protecting sensitive habitats to stormwater compliance, ESA provided on-the-ground solutions to keep this premier project on track. ESA coordinated environmental planning and permitting efforts with more than nine local and federal agencies and provided on-call expertise related to habitat management, air quality monitoring, dewatering permits, and preconstruction surveys.

On a fast-track schedule, ESA consistently partnered with the construction team, client, and agencies to comply with regulations, minimizing environmental impacts and protecting sensitive species.
