The Port Engineers
engineers at the Port Authority make things happen!
VIPA's director of engineering is charged with
carrying out the Authority's capital projects plan as
well as developing a five-year and 10-year agenda for
future improvements. Our engineers are dynamic and well versed in the
fields of civil engineering.
They are involved in complex projects at our air and
Airport projects can include work such
as design plans, construction, heliports, airfield
pavement; airport lighting, marking, signs, and other
visual aids; safety during construction; surveying and
GIS data; deicing, airport fire fighter facilities; bird
radar and foreign object detection systems; and more.
Marine projects involve dock and terminal construction;
seaplane ports; major and maintenance dredging of our
harbors. At both or air and seaports, our engineering staff is
tasked with the installation of federally mandated
security systems such as TWIC systems, gates, security
cameras, alarms, etc. VIPA's engineers have a full
workload, but they manage to get the job done and keep
the ports moving.
