With Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport as one of the fastest-growing airports in the country, the Broward County Aviation Department (BCAD) needs a one-stop partner to quickly and expertly address all its aviation consulting needs. Whether it’s to conduct feasibility studies for capital improvement plans or to ensure expanding operations don’t affect aircraft operations, Ricondo has been proud to serve as the on-call consultant for the BCAD since 2015.
Ricondo has demonstrated its vast cross-disciplinary expertise through various assignments, which include operational evaluations, facilities and infrastructure planning, airfield and airspace analyses, simulation and modeling, financial and business planning, environmental planning, and staff augmentation services. Highlights of Ricondo’s work with Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International and North Perry Airports include:
