Document Purpose
Communication is a critical component in project delivery. It must be delivered in a timely and effective manner to all project stakeholders in order to meet objectives and achieve project goals. This document will detail the execution of all communication regarding the Denver Airport Project. This includes, but is not limited to, communication to and from executives, managers, and the project team. It will also discuss the means and frequency by which communication will be delivered.

The Denver International Airport project consists of designing and constructing a new airport, based upon a “Home-on-the-Range” design. The City of Denver requires a wide open entry point for visitors. The airport is to maintain a distinctive look that will be easily identified by travelers. This design must meet specifications provided by the City of Denver. The new airport should allow for more traffic in and out of the airport, while also becoming less congested. Improvements to runways will lead to a more efficient operation of the regional airspace, significantly reducing aircraft delays and airline operating costs. The new airport will also result in reduced noise impact, as it is being built on a relatively large site in an unpopulated area. The overall layout will be more efficient in reducing passenger walking distance, while also having greater interior design and curb appeal. Airline operations are expected to also run more efficiently due to a newer baggage system, as well as several other specialty systems. Construction is scheduled to begin within the year of 1989. The project team has begun gathering requirements to ensure the successful completion of the project goals. As we execute our project plan it is imperative we assure timely and effective communication to those who will be affected by its outcome. Our communication will be in direct alignment with the project scope.

Scope Statement
To design and construct Denver International Airport (DIA), maintaining a distinctive look that would be easily identified by travelers and within a $2 billion budget. DELIVERABLES
* A significantly improved airfield configuration, allowing for triple simultaneous instrument landings in all weather conditions, improved efficiency and safety of airfield operations, and reduced taxiway congestion. * Ten 12,000 foot and two 16,000 foot runways; three north-south and one east-west 12,000 foot runways up and running by opening day and one of the 16,000 foot north-south runways operational shortly after. * Improved efficiency in the operation of the regional airspace, which, coupled with the increased capacity of the airfield significantly reduces aircraft delays and airline operating costs both at Denver and system-wide. * Reduced noise impacts resulting from a large site that was situated in a relatively unpopulated area. * A more efficient terminal/concourse/apron layout that minimizes passenger walking distance, maximizes the exposure of concessions to passenger flows, provides significantly greater curbside capacity, and allows for the efficient maneuvering of aircraft in and out of gates. * Four-minute changeover, rather than 45 minutes at Stapleton. * Four concourses, each with a maximum of 60 gates.

* Train running through a tunnel beneath the terminal building and the concourses, carrying 6,000 passengers per hour. * Improved international facilities including longer runway lengths for improved stage length capability for international flights and larger Federal Inspection Services (FIS) facilities for greater passenger processing capability. * Significant expansion capability of each major functional element of the airport. * Enhanced efficiency of airline operations as a result of new baggage handling, communications, deicing,...
