Summit Breaks Ground on San Jose Airport Project



Summit has partnered with Granite Construction to work on the San Jose International Airport Phase 1A Taxiway Expansion Project. This Project includes the off-hauling of 13500 tons of Non-RCRA hazardous material and 1688 tons of Non-Hazardous contaminated material.

Summit’s scope of work includes both consulting and contracting services as follows:

  • Excavation and Transportation Plan Preparation
  • Waste Profiling for both contaminated and Hazardous material
  • Transportation and Waste Disposal Services



The history of the Airport and the vicinity of the Airport begins with the first historical settlement in the Santa Clara Valley, which is the founding of the Mission Santa Clara on the banks of the Guadalupe River in 1777. After the secularization of the Mission, some of the subject lands were incorporated into Rancho El Potrero de Santa Clara and the rest of the land into Pueblo Lands of San José. Most of the area south of Brokaw Road remained part of the large Stockton Ranch.

Between 1940 and 1943, the City of San José purchased 483 acres of the Stockton Ranch as a site for a Municipal Airport. Between 1946 and 1961, the Airport facilities were limited to the area located between Newhall and Brokaw Roads. 1957 the Guadalupe River was straightened and channelized, providing more usable land Amendment to Airport Master Plan 145 Integrated Final EIR.

Summit takes the guesswork out of the equation by quantifying environmental issues before construction and implementing the solution.

  • Plan preparation

  • Sampling and testing of soil and groundwater
  • Waste characterization and profiling
