Civil | HENSEL PHELPS CONSTRUCTION CO.
The largest aspect of the
project is the $120 million
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.
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. Its operations were limited to home building and remodeling. Since then, the company has grown into a multibillion-dollar,
employee-owned national contractor with an eclectic and unparalleled portfolio of high-profile completed projects. One of the largest
general contractors and construction managers in the United States,
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.
Hensel Phelps is built on four key pillars: people, process, partnership and technology. The company believes in a collaborative
business approach that blends proven processes, innovative technology and effective communication throughout every phase of a
project's lifecycle. Its average employee has been with the company
for 17 years and all employees are cross-trained in every aspect of
the company's operation.
