Citadel Engineering and Environmental Sciences (E&ES) Team Lands San Diego International Airport Engineering Contract!

Recently, our E&ES Team, led by Mark Drollinger, was selected by Arrive, to assist with design and development of a subsurface vapor mitigation system at the new 30 gate Terminal 1 (T1) at San Diego International Airport (SAN). Arrive is a joint venture (JV) of Turner Construction, Flatiron Construction and Gensler Architecture. Arrive won the $2.3 billion contract to design and build the new 1.2 million square foot, Terminal 1. Citadel is proud to be selected to support the Arrive Team with this large vapor intrusion mitigation system, which will assure indoor air quality throughout the Terminal.
Citadel now has key contract awards and experience with both LAX and SAN – two of the top three busiest airports in California! At LAX, Citadel is proud to be engaged on the $15 billion capital improvement programs that are planned through 2025. This includes everything from major tenant and terminal improvements to a monorail people-mover connected to the world’s largest car rental facility (CONRAC), and much more. Citadel has successfully worked on numerous projects at LAX, including the following notable projects with both our E&ES and Building Sciences Practices:
  • Manchester Square/CONRAC : Citadel conducted hazardous materials surveys of approximately 40 structures in the Manchester Square neighborhood, including single family homes, apartment buildings, a motel, a police station, and a charter school. Citadel also surveyed the streets and subsurface utility lines. Citadel performed soil sampling for hazardous contaminants across the site as well as in areas of prior use of concern (gas station, etc). Citadel monitored the removal of the asbestos and lead materials identified during the demolition of the structures as well as subsurface utilities during grading and excavation. Citadel is acting as the QSP for the project SWPPP and is fulfilling the role of the CSEMS (Construction Site Environmental Management Supervisor) for the project.
  • Alaska Terminal 6: Citadel performed the hazardous materials survey for the renovation, as well as monitors the removal of the asbestos and lead materials during renovation of the structure, and during removal of subsurface utilities during grading and excavation. Currently, Citadel is performing soil monitoring for hazardous contaminants during excavation and grading, as part of the runway and terminal renovation.
  • LAX Receiving Station X(RS-X): Citadel performed a subsurface hazardous contaminant assessment (Phase II) and performed soil performing soil monitoring for hazardous contaminants during excavation and grading.
Citadel’s Engineering and Environmental Sciences (E&ES) Team brings extensive experience in both the private and public sectors, and has worked on hundreds of sites/projects across Southern California. Our E&ES Team understands that every site is unique, requiring its own approach and solutions. Our staff is comprised of a diverse set of engineers, geologists, and environmental scientists, all with environmental-related degrees, nearly half with advanced degrees, and a cumulative excess of over 100 years of environmental experience.
