Land acquisition is a tool used by airports and transit authorities to address land use-compatibility. Whether the need is to create a right-of-way or to address noise in high-impact areas where sound insulation is not an option, land acquisition programs are effective measures to reduce incompatibility.
We provide comprehensive property management support services to land acquisition and homeowner relocation programs. As the single point of contact to our clients, we work directly with contractors, consultants and service providers to deliver turn-key services. Our team handles all public solicitations and procurements, contracting, permitting, notifications, coordination, management, and reporting. This system alleviates the need for program sponsors to publicly solicit, negotiate and contract services from numerous providers, which decreases client workloads, resulting in potential cost-savings to programs.
“The Sound Insulation Estimator is the only comprehensive, self-guided tool of its kind available to a non-professional owner that provides the information normally available from architects, engineers, contractors, and acoustical consultants. Homeowners can quickly and easily enter information and receive a basic “acoustical upgrade” plan, including estimated costs, without having to involve a team of specialists.”

“The Airport is so incredibly generous…We felt like we won the lottery! Our house is quieter and warmer, and has less draft. Last year we saved about 25% on fuel.”

“…My wife and I cannot talk on the telephone while a plane takes off. We don’t miss the news on the TV, and the noise, while not eliminated, is certainly a livable situation. In the final analysis I am a satisfied customer and my wife and I thank all who made it possible.”
