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

Many of the older buildings at EIA may contain asbestos or mineral wool. Check our Asbestos Guidelines to see if your area of work may be affected and if so, what requirements must be met while doing work in the area.
