Regina International Airport – Apron 1 Rehabilitation

Planning, Design, Tendering, Construction Supervision and Project Management of the main apron rehabilitation at the Regina International Airport.


Client: Regina Airport Authority

Our client’s challenge

The Apron 1 Rehabilitation project at the Regina International Airport consists of over 20,000 square meters of aircraft parking space in front of the Air Terminal Building.  Full reconstruction from asphalt to new Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) pavement was required to extend the service life of the pavements by approximately 30 years while not disrupting terminal operations and traveller’s level of service.

Apron 1 serves as the airport’s primary area for de-icing of aircraft and required special design considerations by WSP in order to contain and collect surface/sub-surface glycol runoff from de-icing activities.

Our approach

WSP leveraged its extensive experience at airports across Canada and at Regina in particular to develop a detailed Plan of Construction Operations (PCO) in close cooperation with the airport operator and airlines.  Multiple construction working areas and phases were included so as to minimize disruption to airport operations, in particular, the closing of Aircraft Loading Bridges.


The $10 million dollar project was successfully completed October 2014 while minimizing the operational impact on the airport and airlines operating at the terminal building.
