Pavy is a cloud-based asset management platform that enables airports to make more strategic decisions on pavement investment. As a Software-as-a-Service offering, Pavy can be used by any airport around the world.

The asset management principles behind Pavy were originally conceived when Heathrow Airport commissioned a team of specialists at Jacobs to create a solution to manage their 4 million m2 of airfield pavement.

Jacobs designed the models and worked directly with industry leaders to develop Pavy as a way to manage airfield investment around the globe.
