Pferdkraft’s signature project: Calgary Airport Authority International and Trans-Border Facility Expansion, exemplifies all of our services coming together to produce excellence in Program Delivery.

Pferdkraft contracted with AECOM Canada Inc., who is under contract to the Calgary Airport Authority for program management services for the expansion. Pferdkraft provided to AECOM the Program Manager that leds the development teams of the PM, Design Group, and the Construction Manager from the project's inception to March 2014. On Pferdkraft's departure, through 7 years of program evolution, the program remained on time and under budget.
