Ulteig’s aviation tradition dates to 1970, with a project that pioneered the application of slipform technology for concrete runway overlays. That same year, we were instrumental in obtaining the first airport development grant awarded in the United States. At Ulteig the one thing that we value more than our tradition are the clients we serve. It is our goal to be our clients “partner of choice” for aviation engineering and planning services. Today, we provide those services to air carrier airports, general aviation airports, and military installations.

What separates Ulteig’s team from other consultants are the trusting relationships that we build with each of our clients, becoming a trusted advisors upon whom they can rely. Our clients look to us to help provide them with exceptional solutions to meet the needs for the communities they serve, at Ulteig “We Listen. We solve.™”

We partner with our clients to improve their current facilities and leverage future capital improvements to the greatest possible advantage for the communities they serve. Highly skilled aviation professionals have led all aspects of the planning, design and construction phases, helping Ulteig obtain recognition at a local, regional and national level. With a focus on enhancing the economic performance of our airport partners, we provide a full range of financial planning services, land-use compatibility planning, environmental practices, design and construction, planning and extensive FAA knowledge and experience.

While we offer large-company insights and resources, we also provide small-company advantages, including a single point-of-contact for clients, flexibility to adapt to clients’ methods/standards, and an emphasis on customer service. We take the time to understand your needs and apply our understanding to provide innovative and reliable solutions that sustain your airport.
