All Clear for Successful Project Take-Off

CTLGroup has provided engineering services and materials consulting & testing to the aviation industry for decades.

Our experience includes airports, airfields, military airfields and other types of aviation facilities. We have helped clients such as the FAA and the Port Authority of New York by providing successful cost-effective solutions to complex challenges. For example, CTLGroup played a key role in the design, testing and batching of the concrete used to repave the bay runway at John F. Kennedy International Airport. CTLGroup expertise enabled early project completion, earning the primary contractor a $5 million bonus and allowing the client to reopen the runway earlier than planned.
