Balfour Beatty wins preconstruction work at Dallas Airport

Balfour Beatty announced today that it has been selected for preconstruction and construction services for Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s £590 million seven-year terminal development programme.

The project, which is still in design and development, is expected to be worth approximately $900 million (£590 million).

Balfour Beatty is part of a joint venture known as BARC, which comprises Balfour Beatty, Azteca Enterprises, H.J. Russell & Company and CARCON Industries.

BARC is planned to be responsible for preconstruction and construction management services for the renovation of terminals A and C and the construction of a rail station to connect future routes, for the Dallas Area Rapid Transit and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, to the airport.

Balfour Beatty chief executive Ian Tyler said: “We are delighted to have been selected to deliver this major infrastructure project with our joint venture partners.  

“Our ability to leverage the experience and relationships across our businesses in the US, combined with our strong multi-disciplinary capabilities and project management skills, are ideally suited to complex major infrastructure developments of this kind.

“We look forward to delivering a key part of Dallas-Fort Worth’s transport infrastructure.”

Terminals A, B, C, and E at the airport are approximately 40 years old and primarily consist of original structures and building systems.

The project scope includes the replacement of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, improving roadways and in-field parking garages and preparing existing areas for new conveyance systems for baggage handling.

The phased project will also involve the construction of temporary facilities to accommodate areas that are undergoing renovation.
