George Bush Intercontinental Airport is Houston’s largest airport. It’s also the United States’ eighth busiest airport providing non-stop services to over 185 destinations in the US and 70 direct international flights.
When an accident occurred at the airport, the Jamail & Smith team was called in to provide emergency response assistance. George Bush Intercontinental Airport has multiple terminals connected by a light rail train system above and below ground. There are also roadways through the concourses of the airport. Road sections were being replaced and repaired throughout the airport by a road contractor hired by the City of Houston.
While replacing a section of the road in front of the Marriott Hotel, the road contractor was unaware of the train tunnel below. The large piece of machinery proceeded to puncture 12-14 holes through the concrete paving, and tunnel underneath. This not only caused concrete to fall into the tunnel, it also caused damage to the mechanical lines above the ceiling of the tunnel.
