Airport Authority to host site development forum for San Diego International

LinkedIn +

The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority is to host an industry forum for design and construction businesses to discuss plans for Phase 1 of the Airport Development Plan (ADP), including the replacement of Terminal 1. The ADP is a masterplanning effort that addresses the region’s air travel demand through 2035.

Provided that state and federal environmental review processes are completed successfully and the Airport Authority chooses to proceed with the project, Phase 1 of the ADP would be divided into four separate procurements of varying size, each beginning with a request for qualifications:

1. Terminal and roadways: Phased construction of a new 30-gate terminal building; new entry, circulation, arrival, and departure roadways; pedestrian bridges, demolition of buildings; surface features and utilities; new and relocated utilities; storm drainage collection, storage, and transmission facilities; and a central utility plant upgrade.

2. A new administration building for the Airport Authority.

3. Airfield pavement: Terminal apron, taxiways and overnight aircraft parking with associated lighting, signage and utilities.

4. Structured parking:  Should the Airport Authority determine there is enough parking demand, a multistory parking structure to serve Terminal 1 may proceed.

The forum is intended for prime design-builders along with the lead architects, structural engineers and civil engineers who will comprise the core design-build teams to which the terminal and roadways procurement package will be restricted.

Other team components and disciplines will be added after an award has been made to a core design-build team.  The Airport Authority will work collaboratively with the selected contractors to maximize outreach and opportunities for construction subcontractors and for other design disciplines.

The forum will take place on August 28, 2018, from 9:30-11:00am at San Diego County Regional Airport Authority’s administration building.
