BNP’s approach is that we take a project from its inception through to operational support to include:


Statistical Analysis

Analyzing the current and future needs of the system using numerous computer models that have been developed by our analysis and simulation engineers. The resulting data is imported and integrated into the BNP developed simulation model along with the system design drawings, data reported by the simulations is then transformed into meaningful charts and statistically valid reports for the Airport/Airline to validate the functionality of the proposed design.


Development of conceptual and designs are based on considering various levels of automation, which are then measured against the economic and operational benefits. These criteria are summarized into a final report which serves as the projects definition document. The design is coordinated with the A&E teams to ensure the system is an integral component of the facility. BNP performs the majority of the design work with BIM utilizing the Revit platform.


Contract Documentation

Functional detailed specifications and contract documents are prepared based on the system configuration, the design objectives and BNP’s practical real world history of mechanical, electrical and controls components and products.

Bidding & Award Assistance

Pre-qualification of vendors, release of bid documents, assistance in bid evaluation process all of which is especially beneficial to our clients given BNP’s knowledge of the industry, market pricing and contract requirements.

Construction Administration

BNP’s participation in the construction management/administration process includes submittal reviews, program management, and site supervision; scheduling, detailed inspections of the system, acceptance testing and assistance to the client in the operational start up period.


To successfully provide the project, BNP works very closely and collaboratively with the Airport, the Architectural and MEP design team members and the User Airlines, resulting in openness to share ideas and concepts on how to best serve the airlines/airport’s evolving requirements while responding to the project requirements.
