Turner Construction Company and Flatiron Construction have been chosen as the joint venture to manage the US$700m expansion of Denver International Airport.
The project will add more than 530,000ft² (49,238m²) to Concourse A and 91,000ft² (8,454m²) to Concourse B. The expansion will also include the addition of 16 aircraft gates and two international nodes, with provisions for three more. Construction is scheduled to begin this month.
Aaron Wiebelhaus, vice president and general manager at Turner, commented, “Together with our partner Flatiron, we’re gearing up to streamline and enhance the passenger experience for the more than 58 million travelers who fly to, from, and through Denver every year.
“Airports help connect people to new places, communities, and experiences – they bring you to the world and the world to you. We look forward to delivering a beautiful facility that will encourage and facilitate that exploration.”
Eric Taylor, vice president of Flatiron’s central division, added, “We are proud to be part of the team expanding and continuing the growth of Denver International Airport. We are also glad to be partnering once more with our sister company, Turner, as their vertical construction experience is a strong complement to our heavy civil expertise. Our selection as a joint venture reflects our past shared success as well as the trust and confidence placed in us by the city and county of Denver.”
