“A necessary initial step in the new terminal design process, the geotechnical and topographical work involves assessing the rock elevations, soil condition and strata of the airport site, using both backhoe and drill rigs.

“In areas outside the site of the new terminal location, a backhoe will be used to excavate test pits, while for areas both in and around the new terminal site, drill rigs will be used to drill holes deep enough to indicate rock elevations.
