The Allegheny County Airport Authority unveiled the first views of the developed design for the terminal modernization program last week. The $1.1 billion project will proceed in 2 major pieces. One includes the new parking garage, ground transportation center, car rental center, and related facilities, for which the ACAA is working with Turner Construction to award a CM contract. The larger piece will be the landside/airside terminal work, which includes a new terminal building, for which PJ Dick/Hunt AECOM have been selected. No contracts for construction management have officially been awarded.
The roadway and enabling packages are scheduled to get out to bid around year’s end, with bids hoped for on building packages by mid-2020.
The bid market continues to be competitive. Bids came in last week on the North Allegheny McKnight Elementary. As was the case with the Franklin Elementary, the $17 million total of the apparent low bidders was below the published estimate. Nello Construction was the low general. Nello was also low on both the Franklin Regional elementary bids from the week earlier, which came in at or just below the overall $55 million estimate.
In follow up on some other projects, Landau Building Co. was selected for the $1.4 million Sarah Heinz House job. Rycon Construction was selected to provide pre-construction CM services for the proposed $1 million Carnegie Library of Homestead – Phase 1 Renovations. Bear Construction will be building the new 45,000 square foot facility for KTA Tator in the RIDC West in Findlay Township. Massaro Corp. is taking bids for its GMP on Washington Presbyterian Church.
