The Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority (MSCAA) board of commissioners has selected engineering firm Flintco as the primary contractor for the B Concourse modernization project at Memphis International Airport, Tennessee.
The US$123m multi-phase plan will involve the modernization of the spine and east leg of Memphis Airport’s B Concourse as well as consolidation of all airline, retail, and food and beverage (F&B) businesses into the remodeled concourse.
The redesign will include the addition of wider corridors, moving walkways, larger boarding areas, higher ceilings and increased natural lighting. Additional amenities and concessions options will also be added.
As well as the modernization program, the board also approved a US$32m jet bridge contract to purchase all-new passenger boarding bridges rather than refurbishing existing ones.
Following the board’s approval, construction is now scheduled to begin in September 2018, with project completion in early 2021.
“This is a huge milestone as the reinvention of Memphis airport becomes a reality,” said Scott Brockman, MSCAA president and CEO. “The end result will be a revolutionary new travel experience for Memphis passengers.”
