Primoris takes off with $56M civil contract at Texas airport

ConDig (24-May-17).  Construction and infrastructure company Primoris Services Corp has landed a $56 million contract to upgrade taxiways at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas.

The Dallas, Texas-based company said that work is set to begin in the second quarter and scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2019.

Under the deal awarded by the City of Houston’s Department of Aviation, Primoris will provide a multiple phased revamp of the full limits of the airport’s Taxiway NA, including concrete pavement and airfield lighting.

It also involves operating a concrete crusher, a portable concrete batch plant, and a concrete paving train on the property.

The deal forms part of a full revamp of eight of the airport’s connecting taxiways south of Taxiway NA and three connecting taxiways and four high speed exits to the north.

Work includes reconstructed and expanded asphalt shoulders, pavement section subdrains, storm sewer replacement, thermoplastic and painted markings, airfield lighting infrastructure, implementation of LED fixture and associated vault regulator upgrades, and airfield signage.

Earlier this month, Primoris won a $12 million deal to procure and construct two battery energy storage systems in Texas and a $21 million three-year contract to install gas lines in Iowa.
