Ground Run-Up Enclosures

Mitigating Maintenance Run-Up Noise

The aviation industry has changed significantly in the past 20 years. The dramatic increase in air traffic worldwide has increased the number of take-off power ground run-ups and the noise they generate. Maintenance run-ups typically create a greater noise nuisance than actual takeoffs and are often scheduled at night. This can result in noise complaints from the community and create a serious public relations problem for airport officials. BDI pioneered a cost-effective, technologically-advanced solution for ground run-up noise attenuation.

We offer turnkey design-build GRE facilities that use patented components, proven designs and a spotless track record of successful installations. BDI's revolutionary ground run-up enclosures are suitable for all aircraft including the A380, B-777, and B-787. The combination of aerodynamically advanced Stabile Flow™ design with the effectiveness of Noiseblotter™ acoustic panels provides a stable, effective GRE with very high usability and noise reduction.

Focusing on Results

Every GRE project requires a customized approach due to the unique conditions and circumstances that exist at each airport and surrounding community. The process begins with a study by BDI acoustical and aerodynamic engineers that addresses site characteristics, meteorological factors, terrain details and aircraft specifications. This information becomes the core of the design and is carefully considered throughout the project.

BDI understands the complicated dynamics of a GRE project, which often include many diverse parties, each with a different background and agenda. In addition to being the turnkey supplier, BDI's role involves facilitating teamwork among the parties. This typically includes owners, users, consultants, regulatory agencies and the local community. BDI has learned through experience what is necessary to elicit cooperation from all involved.
