Laramie Regional Airport

[Land & Building Development]

Laramie, Wyoming

Client challenge:

The Laramie Regional Airport has 100 acres of undeveloped land that is offering neither income to the airport nor benefit to the community.

Coffey solution:

Work with Coffey Engineering & Surveying to transform the parcel of land into a commercial airpark and research center. To date, Coffey has completed the following:

  • Planned airport infrastructure, including streets, parking lot layout design, water lines, sanitation lines and storm water runoff management structures
  • Assisted with relocating an existing above-ground electrical power line
  • Acquired a preliminary land plat for the airpark from the City of Laramie
  • Designed and obtained City approval for water and sanitary sewer service lines
  • Designed and obtained City approval for grading and storm water management facilities for the first building in the new park
  • Worked to resolve airpark boundary issues required for final land plat submission

Ongoing benefits:

Coffey helped to transform the unused parcel of land into a thriving economic and learning destination. Due to Coffey’s strong working relationship with city, county and state regulatory staff, the project’s zoning and permitting approval process was highly streamlined. The project was completed on schedule and under budget, and is poised to eventually provide sustainable income for the airport, and tax revenue, jobs and learning opportunities to the Laramie community.

“As a former engineer, I appreciate high quality engineering, surveying, GIS and materials testing services. That’s why I choose and recommend Coffey Engineering & Surveying. Coffey employees are conscientious and professional, and their thorough, accurate designs and estimates facilitate state grant applications and local approval processes for the Laramie Regional Airport.”
