A joint venture of Turner Construction Company and US-based heavy civil infrastructure contractor Flatiron has secured a contract to build a new $2.265bn airport terminal at San Diego International Airport in the US.

The 1.2 million ft² building, which will replace the existing 1960s era terminal, will comprise 30 gates and offer more seating for passengers as well as additional security checkpoints with more lanes.

Subject to securing all environmental permits, construction is slated to commence in late 2021 and will take place in two stages, which will ensure the availability of the current number of gates during the build-out.

Planned to be launched in the first quarter of 2025, the first phase will involve the construction of 19 new gates.

The second phase, which is scheduled to open in early 2027, will involve the construction of 11 new gates, bringing the total number of gates at the airport to 62.

In a press statement, Flatiron said: “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.

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

Earlier, the Turner-Flatiron team has completed work at San Diego International Airport and airports in San Francisco, Oakland, Sacramento and Denver.
