Salt Lake City International Airport to construct new $740m concourse

WCN Editorial Team 4 May 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

The Salt Lake City International Airport in Utah is planning to construct a $740m concourse north of the existing terminal.

 
The new concourse is expected to accommodate forecasted growth in passenger traffic and replace aging facilities.

The project is in addition to the South Concourse, which is just starting construction as part of the Salt Lake City Department of Airport’s (SLCDA) Terminal Redevelopment Program (TRP).

The new facility will increase the TRP from $1.8bn to $2.6bn and will replace existing gates on Concourses B, C and D, which have deficiencies that would require costly renovations if retained.

The plans are on to include a flexible gate layout to serve a mix of aircraft sizes, even though the concourse will primarily be used for narrow-body and small, wide-body aircraft.

The north concourse layout will allow an additional 15 gates to be added to the east for a total of 45 gates. Further, a passenger tunnel will be built to connect the North Concourse to the South Concourse and the new terminal.

Phase one of the construction work will commence on the west portion of the building and is set to be finished in 2020, in conjunction with the opening of the South Concourse-West and the new terminal.
