Minimized Facility Downtime

We respect the resource that is your facility uptime. Downtime of a runway or other airport facility applies undue pressure to the remaining airport infrastructure. Safe and efficient return of your facility's entire operation — and the savings related to reduced project durations — checks every box in our core purpose and values.

Trusted and Collaborative Team Members

The Sargent project management team brings centuries of experience in managing both our work and that of subcontractors. Oftentimes, owners award projects to multiple contractors and cooperation between them can make or break a project. Sargent's willingness and ability to lead cooperatively is second to none.

Precise Work

We train our personnel to pursue the highest degree of quality in everything they build. Not only do we seriously train our crews, but we outfit them with the latest technology to achieve quality work. Whether it's modern heavy equipment, GPS and laser technology, or data collection and deployment, we fully invest in every aspect of our work.

Our Skilled and Ever-Improving Workforce

Sargent's first value is investing in people, and it shows in how we manage our projects. To achieve a high degree of accountability and world-class standards of safety, quality, and efficiency, we rigorously train to those standards throughout the year.

Fully Integrated Solutions

Sargent not only has the capabilities necessary to build large and demanding airport projects, but we also provide everything under one roof. From excavation to underground to on-road hauling, Sargent can control the entire construction process and schedule as a result.

“It’s refreshing to work with a contractor like Sargent. There’s a give-and-take approach and respect for our opinions that is not common among many other contractors.”
