Metropolitan Airports Commission MSP International Airport Bloomington, Minnesota

Metropolitan Airports Commission MSP International Airport Bloomington, Minnesota

AET has worked with the Metropolitan Airports Commission for several years to assist with subsurface investigations and cleanup, testing, permitting and overall environmental compliance at the Minneapolis/ Saint Paul (MSP) International Airport.

We are, generally,  involved in public airfields projects generally when they require replacement of deteriorated pavements or during airport expansion and new construction projects.

Past MSP International Airport projects  included a north apron expansion for Terminal 2, a checked baggage inspections system (CBIS) for Terminal 2, and pavement reconstruction projects.

The potential for subsurface petroleum and glycol contamination as a result of regular deicing and fueling can lead to environmental impact that must be investigated and remediated prior to repair, expansion or new construction projects.

AET is retained as an environmental consultant to manage environmental issues encountered during excavation of subsurface soils, providing testing and a proper disposal plan.

AET can also provide field screening and lab analysis of soil to be excavated. We can use test pits or soil borings prior to excavation and conduct analysis in our labs to environmentally categorize the soil for both disposal and on-site use.

AET Petrography Webinar

Forensic Geology/Petrography: What Aggregate Analyses Tell Us About Concrete

1/26/2022, 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM CST

AET takes you inside an examination of aggregates and concrete to understand the standards, cover typical observations, and review past projects.

We’ll also answer these questions and many others:

  • Does AET use XRD?
  • Are there methods for detecting problem minerals (like pyrrhotite) using GIS?
  • Can deleterious materials in aggregates lead to court cases?
  • Besides the ASTM standards, what other references does AET recommend for aspiring material petrographers?

The AET Petrography Webinar is presented by ​​Chris Braaten, PG, CPG, a Senior Petrographer/Geologist at American Engineering Testing, Inc. Chris has performed petrographic analysis on construction aggregates from 49 US States and 18 different countries/territories.
