Contruction Today - July/August 2017 - 103
include baggage make-up conveyors, additional inbound baggage systems, airline
operations office space, signage, airport
support space, security systems, restroom
facilities, storage and ancillary facilities.
The expansion also will add 48 acres of
space to the existing terminal facility to
be used by aircrafts. A $25 million deicing
hangar for planes is near completion.
Other infrastructure improvements
include a new roof for the entire terminal, expanding the airport's vestibules,
upgrading baggage claim devices and
replacing light fixtures with LED lights.
The project is being completed in various
phases - some of them at the same time.
Currently, phase two of the project is
nearly half complete. Its focus is on
expanding the terminal apron. At a cost
of about $50 million, the expansion will
provide updated taxi-lane dimensions
and additional overnight aircraft parking.
This also includes ground service equipment storage to accommodate airline and
ground service providers.
This isn't the first time Hensel Phelps
has worked for Austin Bergstrom. In 2015,
the company completed a new six-lane
passenger security checkpoint. The larger
customs facility has helped increase the
processing of international arrivals from
200 passengers per hour to 400 per hour
- though it has the capacity to process up
to 600 passengers. The $62 million project
also added roughly 56,700 square feet to
the terminal and renovated about 17,000
square feet of the existing terminal.
Hensel Phelps was founded as a local
builder in Greeley, Colo., in 1937. Since
then, it has grown into a multibillion-dollar, employee-owned national
contractor with an eclectic and unparalleled portfolio of high-profile projects. As
a company, Hensel Phelps consistently
ranks among Engineering News-Record's
top 20 contractors.
This year, the Design-Build Institute of
America (DBIA) honored Hensel Phelps'
design/build team for the work it did to
restore crew launch capabilities at Space
Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air
Force Station in Florida. The team won the
organization's National Award of Merit in
the Industrial/Process/Research Facilities
category. As a result, the project is now a
nominee for the DBIA's National Award
of Excellence in the Industrial/Process/
Research Facilities category.
