WCN Editorial Team 23 Mar 2022 NORTH AMERICA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Denver International Airport has appointed global construction consultant Turner & Townsend as project controls partner as the airport plans to expand its capacity by 40%.

As passenger traffic is returning to pre-pandemic levels, DEN is preparing to handle 100 million annual passengers between 2030 and 2035 through a programme of expansion of its terminal capacity.

Denver International is the second largest airport in the world in terms of area and has the longest runway in the US.

In 2021, the airport served 58.8 million passengers and was the third busiest airport in the world.

According to an airport spokesperson, with a $20m capacity, this three-year contract comes with two options of one year extensions, reported The Denver Gazette.

Besides planning the delivery of schemes, the consultancy will be responsible to create a Centre of Excellence and Equity in Aviation, a $40m project that is scheduled to break ground in the airport’s Hotel and Transit Centre this year.

Turner & Townsend director of infrastructure Christopher McAtasney said: “We are delighted to join Denver on its journey in creating a Centre of Excellence and Equity in Aviation for capital project delivery.

“In addition, we are particularly happy to be furthering our mission to help grow and invest in minority and women-owned businesses through partnerships that bolster their experience and lead to more opportunities in infrastructure development.”
