The joint venture of New York City-based Turner Construction and Broomfield, Colorado-based Flatiron Construction recently announced that it has been awarded a contract to build the new $2.265 billion terminal at San Diego International Airport.

Construction is slated to begin late next year. Financial details of the contract have not yet been announced.

The Project

A new 1.2 million-square-foot building with 30 gates is slated to replace the existing 1960s era terminal.

According to the JV, construction will take place in two stages to ensure that the current number of gates remain available during the build out.

The joint venture of New York City-based Turner Construction and Broomfield, Colorado-based Flatiron Construction recently announced that it has been awarded a contract to build the new $2.265 billion terminal at San Diego International Airport.

During the first phase, scheduled to open in first quarter of 2025, 19 new gates will be added. The next phase, scheduled to open in early 2027, will add 11 new gates. When work is complete, the airport will have a total of 62 gates.

“The terminal will offer a range of sustainable and energy-efficient features. A series of airfield improvements, including new, redesigned taxiways, will help reduce aircraft taxiing times, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions,” the JV said.

“An underground fuel-delivery system will reduce the need for trucks to deliver fuel to aircrafts and result in less emissions and quicker turnarounds at the gates.”

Additionally, the new terminal is expected to offer passengers more seating in the gate area, restaurants and shops, and security checkpoints with more lanes.

Recent Airport Infrastructure News

Over the past few months, a slew of grants have been awarded to airport projects from the Federal Aviation Administration.

Late last week, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao announced that the Trump Administration was awarding $335 million in airport safety and infrastructure grants to 80 airports in 25 states.

Chao announced at the beginning of the month that $1.2 billion in grants was awarded to 405 airports across the 50 states as well as the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, Palau, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

In August, $273 million in FAA grants was distributed to 41 states and six territories, including the District of Columbia, American Samoa, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, Palau and Puerto Rico.

In May, Chao announced that the FAA was awarding $1.187 billion in grants divvied to 439 airports.

All of the recent money has come from either the Airport Improvement Program or from Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act grants.
