Dayton City Commission will soon see a proposed $12 million, three-year master professional services agreement with Beavercreek-based Woolpert for work at the Dayton International Airport and a smaller airport near Austin Landing.

Four companies responded to a Dayton Department of Aviation request for proposals, a process that began in October 2016, according to city documents. Engineering firm Woolpert was selected as a qualified vendor.

Under the agreement, Woolpert will provide “specialized professional airport services” for work at the Dayton International Airport north of Interstate 70 and at the Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport in Miami Twp.

Those services will include planning, design, technology consulting, construction engineering services, construction management and more.

Last month, the city’s aviation director, Terrence Slaybaugh, told this news outlet that Dayton International will launch at least $35 million in new construction projects this year, work that could last up to 18 months, fueled mostly by federal funds.

The airport hopes to get in all about $14 million in Federal Aviation Administration funds for runway and aircraft ramp work this year, Slaybaugh said at the time. The city is also designing a $4.5 million sanitary sewer project. Work on the terminal is also ongoing, he said.

The projects in which Woolpert is involved will be funded with state, local and federal grants, city documents say.
