Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) General Consulting Services

Kimley-Horn's aviation consultants worked to provide aviation on-call services for Daytona Beach International Airport and Volusia County

From 2011 to 2015, Kimley-Horn provided on-call services on an as-needed basis to Volusia County and Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB).

Daytona Beach International Airport is a county owned airport located three miles (5 km) southwest of Daytona Beach, next to Daytona International Speedway, in Volusia County, FL. The airport has 3 runways, a six-gate domestic terminal, and an international terminal.

Kimley-Horn provided a multitude of services for the County, including civil engineering, aviation planning, cost estimating, environmental, and project management. Among our specific assignments, the project tasks included preparing an ALP amendment, hangar feasibility analysis, airspace assessment for new developments, federal and state funding assistance and grant assurance, cargo facility analysis, pavement inspection, and strength analysis.

Other specific projects included:

The Kimley-Horn team is updating a section of the City of Daytona Beach Zoning Code to bring it up to date with both state and FAA regulations and guidance. The effort involves the review and refinement of the draft language concerning airspace protection and land use compatibility at the airport and how it affects the Daytona Speedway as well as the preparation of appropriate mapping to display certain zones requiring the submission of materials for a formal FAA review.
Taxiway W2 was designed to 420’ long extending from the centerline of R/W 16-34 to centerline of Taxiway W. The new pavement length is 314’. Taxiway E2 was designed at 400’ long extending from the centerline of R/W 16-34 to centerline of Taxiway E. The actual new pavement length is 305 feet. Taxiways W2 and E2 are 90 feet wide (due to tapers) and designed for standard ADG III aircraft. Volusia County desired to prevent incursions on Runway 7R-25L at the Daytona Beach International Airport caused by aircraft taxiing south on Taxiway W. Concepts for accomplishing this included signage modification at the intersection of Taxiway Whiskey and Taxiway Sierra and eliminating this hot spot, constructing a cutover Taxiway Y connecting Taxiway S and W, and relocating Taxiways W2 and E2.
Kimley-Horn provided design, permitting, and limited construction administration services for a 2,500-foot sanitary force main system connecting to the City of Daytona Beach force main with future aviation tenants on the southwest side of the airport.
