The fourth-largest airport system in the United States has chosen EcoSys EPC as its software solution for Capital Program Planning and Funding and Project Cost Management and Reporting.
EcoSys, developer of advanced project and portfolio cost controls solutions, announced that Houston Airport System (HAS) has chosen EcoSys Enterprise Planning and Controls (EcoSys EPC) software to serve as its Capital Program Planning and Capital Program Management solution.
HAS, operated by the City of Houston Department of Aviation, is the fourth-largest airport system in the United States and the sixth largest in the world. It has contracted with the Houston Airports Program Management Team (HAPMT), a joint venture of AECOM, the Louis Berger Group, Bradlink, and Omega Engineers, to provide program management for the renovation and expansion of the three airports in the Houston Airport System: George Bush International Airport/Houston (IAH), William P. Hobby Airport (HOU), and Ellington Field (EFD). HAPMT and HAS selected EcoSys EPC after an in-depth product selection and evaluation process.
“After a careful comparison of several solutions in the marketplace, we selected EcoSys EPC due to its powerful and flexible project cost management and integration capabilities” said Paul DeMeo, Systems Implementation Manager for HAPMT.
