Aviation, Ports and Transit

Aviation: Freese and Nichols’ decades of aviation experience spans from renovations at general aviation airports to multibillion-dollar programs at international hubs. Our team of engineers, architects and environmental scientists brings diverse technical skills and familiarity with local issues, and our projects strive to minimize the impact of construction upon daily airport operations.

Ports: Our experienced professionals offer a broad perspective on infrastructure challenges and creative solutions to address your port’s needs. Our depth of expertise within numerous industries — including cargo, industrial, commercial and cruise developments — can help you achieve your port’s vision for growth and development.

Transit: Our team is experienced in serving as owner/engineer on conceptual and final design for freight, passenger and multimodal transit facilities. As O/E, we helped Texas Central Railroad get federal environmental clearances that resulted in an Environmental Impact Statement record of decision and specific safety regulations for high-speed trains.
