We are thrilled to share the exciting news that WK Dickson’s aviation practice has secured an Airport Engineering and Planning Services for the Airport Development Projects contract with the Kinston Regional Jetport and The North Carolina Global Transpark located in Lenoir County.
This 2,500-acre multimodal industrial park and airport is designed to meet domestic and global commerce needs. The park offers unparalleled access to air, rail, highways, and North Carolina’s two international ports. In addition, the NCGTP boasts a pro-business climate aimed at growing the aerospace, logistics, manufacturing, emergency services, defense contracting, and supporting industries. The NCGTP is master-planned to eventually encompass 15,300 acres and provide a full range of business amenities.
This contract marks a significant milestone as we expand our services to a new general aviation client that also has the potential to reach across to our other practices. Over the next two-plus years, our team will provide comprehensive planning, design, construction, and grant administration services at the airport and transpark.
Fun fact: Did you know that the airport boasts a single 11,500-foot runway that ranks among the longest in the southeastern United States?
