In the proposed integrated approach to airport design and construction for developing countries, emphasis is placed on the need to assess the airport projects on broad economic, political, and strategic criteria with the client's interests as the paramount consideration. Professional, impartial interdisciplinary study should be applied to each situation in order that decisions may be made with a certain amount of knowledge on the most probable consequences of the available options. Savings in cost and construction time of concrete pavings can be achieved by simplification of jointing systems and the omission of reinforcement.
