British Airports Authority
British Airports Authority, owner of seven airports in the United Kingdom, successfully managed the refurbishment of the Terminal 1 arrivals and departures concourse at London Heathrow Airport. The complex terminal renovation project avoided imposing on the travel experience of the millions of passengers who used Terminal 1, which remained operational during the upgrades. Concurrently, the project team met the various requirements of stakeholders, including the aviation industry, customers, employees, government, local communities, non-governmental organizations, regulators and suppliers. Challenges such as increasing project scope and partner delays were successfully managed and the project delivered under the original budget.
Colorado State Patrol
The Colorado State Patrol’s (CSP) strategic planning and execution of law enforcement services for the 2008 Democratic National Convention (DNC) ensured no disruption to this high-visibility event. The DNC project plan linked tactical law enforcement procedures to the business of running a comprehensive project. CSP adopted many of the most common practices from A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) and incorporated them into their Incident Command System.
Fluor Corporation, a Project of the Year winner in 2007, is a finalist again in 2009 for its engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the TS Power Plant (TSPP) near Dunphy, Nevada. Commissioned by Newmont Nevada Energy Enterprises, Ltd., the facility has exceeded performance guarantees already resulting in significant fuel savings and added profit.
