RS&H-Engineered Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport Runway Project Featured in Airport Improvement Magazine
Every Christmas for 31 years now, children with severe and terminal illnesses have taken off on a Fantasy Flight for the destination every child wants to see around Christmas time: The North Pole.
At the end of the Detroit Metro Airport runway, Santa awaits at his headquarters with open arms and a sack full of presents and goodies. And, at least for a night, Christmas is a little brighter.
Nearly 70 children from six Detroit-area hospitals boarded a Delta jet Friday at the Detroit airport and took off on their “supersonic” flight to a place where dreams come true. Making dreams come true is just what members of the Motown Silver Liners, a group made up of retired airline employees, aim to do every year.
RS&H is one of many organizations that donate to the Fantasy Flight program to help make the annual event possible. This year, RS&H contributed $2,722 to the Detroit event.
The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) sets a high benchmark for recognizing sustainable projects across the country, so much so that only 19 projects have earned an ISI award.
Now, you can add the Detroit Metropolitan Airport’s Runway and Associated Taxiways Reconstruction project to the list of winners. The RS&H-designed project earned ISI’s Silver award after being completed ahead of time, under budget and diverting 99 percent of recyclable material from landfills. The Detroit airport is only the second in the country to receive ISI designation.
