Balfour Beatty has been selected by the Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) for a terminal expansion project at the Jacksonville International Airport (JIA).
The project includes construction of the new Concourse B that will add six gates. In addition to adding six new gates with the construction of Concourse B, Balfour Beatty will coordinate with the JAA and the design team Jacobs/RS&H during the preconstruction phase to also finalize plans for secondary areas of terminal expansion.
Secondary areas of expansion could include concessions, airfield circulation and apron expansion, a third level for additional concessions and lounge space, administrative and operational areas, baggage system expansion, among other work.
“Our selection for this great project is a tribute to our aviation industry expertise and strong 19-year history with the Jacksonville Aviation Authority that has blossomed into a dynamic partnership,” stated Scott Skidelsky, Balfour Beatty’s president of buildings operations in Florida. “This is an exciting project for Jacksonville and our team is honored to be their construction partner in delivering Concourse B to help meet the airport’s unprecedented growth in passenger traffic.”
The project’s preconstruction phase is scheduled to begin in July 2019. Construction will begin in the summer of 2020 with completion scheduled in December 2022.
