Houston Airports’ IAH Terminal Redevelopment Program (ITRP) has greatly benefited from the talents and dedication of local firms. TCM, who serves as a Joint Venture partner on the Houston Aviation Alliance Program Management Support Services team, has had the privilege of managing and overseeing numerous projects for the ITRP.
TCM’s strengths in generating project budgets and master program schedules (project controls), facilitating the development of construction drawing and technical specifications (design services), and permitting, bidding, subcontractor and supplier buy-outs have proved invaluable for ITRP. Additionally, TCM has supplied cash flow forecast, change order, scope deviation management, construction management to tenant turnover, and building code compliance services for the Houston Airport System.
Troi Taylor said that TCM is most proud to have garnered global acclaim for delivering quality results that aren’t defined by their identity as a small and/or minority-owned business, but “for providing executive leadership in the field of design and construction management. Because of our past performance, we have multi-million dollar repeat customers in TAMUS and several faithful clients in China.”
For ITRP, TCM staff member Rodney Leonard serves as a Senior Systems Support Analyst, currently assisting with commissioning of the Program Management Office building, as well as providing user training and assistance for the EAMS, which has over 500 users.“My responsibilities include adding new PMO assets into the HAS ‘Infor’ Enterprise Asset Management System (EAMS),” Leonard said. “This information is vital toward efficient tracking and upkeep of all facility-related assets. Additionally, I work with the HAS maintenance leadership to set up a PMO preventative maintenance program and enter new equipment warranty information into EAMS after construction has been completed.”
Troi and Kelley Taylor both lauded the ITRP for its eventual efficiencies for the traveling public. “It is our expectation that the ITRP completes within the allotted program parameters specific to quality, schedule, and budget,” Troi said. “Further, we approach our tasks with the mindset that ITRP will receive global recognition for innovation and modernization. Throughout the dialogue related to the successes of ITRP, it is our hope that TCM will be a strategic and vital team player in those success testimonials.”
The ITRP opportunity has opened the doors for TCM to step into other airport systems as well, such as DFW Airport in north Texas.
“Working on ITRP has been an absolute success,” Taylor said, “and is now part of the narrative of our company’s growth as we strive to become household names in aviation facility improvement programs.”
