ConDig (19-Jan-18). Hensel Phelps and Eutaw Construction Co have snagged contracts with a combined value of $226 million for the expansion of Nashville International Airport.
Under the deals award by the Metropolitan Airport Authority (MNAA), Greeley, Colorado-based Hensel Phelps secured a $203 million design build contract for the Concourse D and terminal wings expansion projects.
The scheme will feature revamping and expanding the airport’s fourth concourse, as well as enlarge the existing ticketing lobby and baggage claim areas. The project is scheduled to be completed by the summer of 2020.
Concourse D has not been used for airline operations since American Airlines stopped using BNA as a hub about 20 years ago, according to the airport.
Eutaw Construction, based in Madison, Missouri, has also pocketed a $23 million contract for a terminal apron and taxilane expansion project that is set to add more than 500,000 square feet of additional space for aircraft parking and maneuvering, adjacent to the airport terminal.
The expansion project, which is slated for completion in spring 2019, will require in excess of 55,000 dump truck loads to fill in a 50-foot depression, the airport said.
Last January, MNAA broke ground on the renovation and expansion plan for Nashville International Airport, which includes expanded concourses, additional security screening lanes, modern international arrivals facility, on-site hotel and transit station.
