Your Vision Is Our Mission
Garver plans with your future in mind. We examine how our designs influence airfield functionality and how construction activity impacts operations. Our smart planning maximizes funding, schedules, and usability.

From general aviation to international air carrier facilities, the Garver Aviation Group develops innovative, cost-conscious, and sustainable solutions to enhance your airport's safety and utilization.


This is the engineering firm I fell in love with many years ago; the one who would figure out a way to get us funding and make it happen.

    When a primary runway at Nashville International Airport in Tennessee required full-depth reconstruction, Garver pursued a progressive concrete-recycling method to reuse the pavement and save the client millions of dollars.

    Garver has a role in designing and managing projects that change how the private sector of the U.S. economy is able to do business on both the national and world stage.

    Soaring down the runway, the F-16 Fighting Falcon dropped its tailhook and snagged the arresting cable that spanned the pavement. With a whirl and a snap, the steel wire and nylon tape unreeled and stretched like a taut rubber band, bringing the fighter jet to a controlled stop after its emergency landing. As...

    With both city and state owners responsible for taxiway work at Ada Municipal Airport, meticulous project management became vital to its success—especially when the $1.5 million realignment expanded into a $5.5 million enterprise. On behalf of the City of Ada, the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission...

    Following a feasibility study in 2007, the Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission launched an ambitious terminal redevelopment plan called the 2020 Vision.

    Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA) has experienced significant growth in the past decade and has modified and expanded its electrical systems to keep pace.

    Auburn University Regional Airport in Auburn, Ala. faced a unique challenge during its taxiway extension project—contending with an abandoned, capped landfill. The airport extended Taxiway Charlie by 2,200 feet, including two connecting taxiways. This extension connects the Runway 36 threshold...

    As one of the busiest single-runway general aviation airports in the nation, Addison Airport in Texas couldn't simply shut down its runway to reconstruct and overlay the aging asphalt. The airport's bustling status necessitated an aggressive approach to extend the pavement's life while keeping the...

    Today's new airports have to meet a complex network of industry, land, environmental, design, funding and agency regulations.
