Woolpert was hired to provide CAD, GIS and BIM services for the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority


GOAA uses proven aviation and geodata technologies to continuously equip its airport operations in a safer, more efficient and better way to meet the changing needs of industry and passengers.

Woolpert was selected by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority to provide computational design, GIS, building information modeling and related services under a five-year, $ 1.5 million contract. GOAA owns and operates Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando Executive Airport (ORL).

Woolpert will create, maintain and integrate new and existing CAD, GIS and BIM data sets to support airport operations and the comprehensive growth and improvement strategies outlined in GOAA’s $ 3.5 billion capital improvement program. Woolpert will also develop standards and specifications for the use of this data that are consistent with national CAD and BIM standards and the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport GIS program.

“The GOAA uses proven aerospace and geospatial technologies to continuously make airport operations safer, more efficient and better equipped to meet the changing needs of industry and passengers,” said Paul Akers, Project Manager at Woolpert. “Woolpert has completed hundreds of successful data integration projects for aviation, municipal, federal and private customers across the country. We have been serving the Orlando area for 15 years. We are honored to be able to set up a nationally recognized, regionally known team to ensure that all requirements of the GOAA are met. “

Orlando International Airport is one of the 10 busiest airports in the country and recorded more passenger traffic than any other US airport during the 2020-21 holiday season. Orlando Executive Airport also had its busiest December since 2007 last year, with an overall increase in operations of 27% in 2020 compared to December 2019.

This contract is now underway.
