Before you start

Constructor on-boarding

If you are a new contractor working directly for the GTAA or if you are renewing your pre-qualification: access and read the GTAA Contractor Safety Pre-Qualification Guidelines 2024.

New contractors

Once the GTAA awards you a construction or maintenance contract, you must: 
  1. Complete the GTAA Contractor Safety Pre-Qualification Application 2024 form
  2. Submit your application to the Construction Compliance and Permits Office (CCPO) at for assessment.

If any further information is needed, the CCPO will contact you directly.

Renewing contractors

All existing contractors holding a current GTAA contract and who have been previously pre-qualified, must: 
  1. Complete the GTAA Contractor Safety Pre-Qualification Application 2024 form
  2. Submit the form along with supporting documentation to the CCPO at for assessment.
Once all required documentation is submitted and reviewed, the CCPO will then send you a “Contractor Safety Pre-Qualification Status Letter” specifying the type of work you have been pre-qualified to undertake for the GTAA with an expiry date. 

You will need to renew your safety pre-qualification every three years. During the three-year valid period, you must include a copy of your issued Status Letter with all submissions to the GTAA during the competitive bidding (either request for proposal or tender) process.

In addition, Contractors must maintain their Occupational Health and Safety Program manual up-to-date and must submit their updated version to the CCPO when revisions are made with clear details of all revisions from the previous version submitted.

Constructors (construction managers or general contractors)

Contractors taking on the role of “Constructor” (construction manager or general contractor) for GTAA projects greater than $5 million in value must obtain their Certificate of Recognition (COR).  These constructors must show that they are COR-certified by submitting their IHSA issued “Letter of Good Standing”, which demonstrates that their health and safety management system has been developed, implemented and will be evaluated on an annual basis through comprehensive internal and external audits and checks. For more detailed information about COR Certification, please visit the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA) website

Access to Projectwise and eShare

Consultants and contractors working on Pearson-sponsored projects at the airport can ask for direct access to these systems:

  • ProjectWise – technical document management system,
  • eShare – cloud-based document collaboration and transfer system, where direct access to ProjectWise is not required.

To request access to either system, ask your Pearson Project Manager or Tenant representative.

Data provision requests

Data provisions are prepared every Friday for requests received before the end of business on Wednesday of the same week.

To request engineering data, fill out the Data Request Form  (PDF, 139 KB) and include the following details:

  • GTAA project manager, or leasing representative
  • GTAA project number or lease agreement number, if assigned
  • Detailed description of project
  • Specific location of project
  • Recipient of information

Our Engineering Data unit will deliver a transmittal document to the recipient listed in your request form. The transmittal document must be signed and returned to the GTAA by a signing authority of the requesting company before data will be given.

By signing, the requesting company acknowledges and agrees to abide by the terms and conditions laid out on the transmittal document and commits to provide final as-built and/or record data to the GTAA upon completion of the project.

Drawing number requests

Drawings numbers can only be assigned by our Engineering Data unit. Please prepare a list of drawings in Excel format and forward to the supervisor engineering of data operations. The list should include a drawing description, sheet numbers (if applicable) and be grouped by discipline.

Record data submissions

When a construction project is complete, you must submit your final documentation, which must include:

  • A single contiguous CADD dataset for each engineering discipline as laid out in our CADD Standard Guide (PDF, 446 KB)
  • Adobe PDF and source CADD sheet files of stamped as-built files

Before starting design, review the Record Data Submissions Guide  (PDF, 729 KB) to avoid delays for your project's final close-out.
