- Our Work
Answer: 280 tons of rebar, 2,300 tons of structural steel, 50,000 square feet of concrete and — just as important — an effective and strategic team of communications professionals.
On May 4, 2010, the first small chunk of earth was moved at the official ground breaking ceremony for the Portland International Jetport’s terminal expansion project. Earlier this month, various celebrations and well-attended events were held in honor of the terminal expansion’s completion as it opened its doors for travelers.
Jetport Director, Paul Bradbury, was joined by a group of state legislators,
city officials and project partners to officially break ground.
In the 18 months that followed the first shovel strikes; some serious manpower paved the way in the completion of this project. Speaking of manpower, the Burgess team did plenty of flexing and heavy lifting… of the mental variety. As this project continued to achieve milestone after milestone, our marketing, advertising and PR expertise delivered work that got results. From the groundbreaking to the grand opening, we ensured the Portland International Jetport was top of mind, on message and on target by earning press coverage every step of the way.
December 2010 - project partners, state and local dignitaries reconvened at the
Jetport to celebrate another project milestone: the topping-off ceremony.
Here are a few examples:
Additionally, we would like to extend thanks to everyone who made the expanded terminal’s opening events such a success. Special thanks go out to Bash Events & Catering, Headlight Audio Visual and the Portland String Quartet for bringing our vision for the terminal’s grand opening to life.
Last, but certainly not least, we want to congratulate everyone at the Portland International Jetport on the successful completion of the expanded terminal. Since 2007, our partnership has yielded many marketing success resulting in record passenger numbers. We value your partnership and thank you for five years of great work, and we look forward to working with you on many more projects in the future.
