AEG Staff provided professional design and technical management services for ORD LLC O’Hare Runway Designers, JV on Chicago Department of Aviation’s O’Hare Modernization Program. They were on a team which prepared final design packages for the Runway 10R-28L project and to provide final design for adjacent runway projects.
