Work on Site or at Tenant Facilities (EIA)

Design and Development Guidelines

There are design and development guidelines for Edmonton International Airport. Details may be found using this document General Landscape Guidelines.


Airport Security

If your work is adjacent to or inside the primary security line, there are guidelines that must be met in order to maintain airside security as required by Transport Canada. See here for more details. This will include a "Plan of Construction Operations" (PCO) approved by Transport Canada. Approval of the PCO is required before Edmonton Airports will approve any construction for FAPs that are airside. Contact Edmonton Airports' Manager of Operational Compliance at 780-890-8530 if in doubt whether your project needs this approval.


Hazardous Materials

Due to the age of some of the buildings at EIA, there is a possibility that it may have asbestos (or other hazardous materials) in it.  Please use this drawing as a guide as to possible locations for asbestos.  It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure proper procedures are followed and precautions taken before starting work at any of these facilities.


Ground Disturbance (Excavation)

The airport is a unique environment with many private and public utilities on site. All excavation and ground disturbance must have an approved FAP and completed Alberta One Call tickets for all registered utilities (including Edmonton Airports) prior to breaking ground. Edmonton Airports is a registered member of Alberta One Call and locators will be dispatched through the Alberta One Call Centre.

Directional drilling will require engineered drawings showing utilities in the area and cross sections of the drill path to be submitted. Edmonton Airports' will also require a Ground Level Disturbance Level II supervisor to be present during the work.
