Subcontractors meet at Tech Campus to learn about noise program
More than 100 subcontractors attended a meeting May 13 at the Airport’s Tech Campus to learn about the scope and scale of the Noise Insulation Program (NIP) that Hartsfield-Jackson will launch this year.
According to Tom Nissalke, director of environmental and technical services, “we want to maximize opportunities for small and disadvantaged business owners. This meeting is designed to give them the tools and information they need to participate in the program.”
The NIP is a voluntary program approved by the Federal Aviation Administration to make noise-sensitive properties near airport boundaries compatible with aircraft noise.
