In December, the Allegheny County Airport Authority will put the first packages out to bid for the Terminal Modernization Program (TMP). The packages will be access roadway and site work that are enabling projects for the main program. These packages will be worth roughly $15 million.
The TMP overall consists of two main components, the $750 million new terminal (including renovations to existing) and the $250 million Landside/Ground Transportation Center. PJ Dick/Hunt is the CM on the terminal. Turner Construction is CM on the Landside portion.
During the middle/latter portions of 2020, there will be multiple packages bid, many with multiple prime contracts (as required by the PA Procurement Code). By the end of 2020, more than $500 million in contracts will have bid. The packages have been designed so that there are opportunities for general contractors and specialty contractors of all sizes. Some of the contracts will exceed $50 million, and approach $100 million. There is a Project Labor Agreement being negotiated for the TMP.
One pre-TMP project has already been let to Mascaro Construction for $3.4 million worth of demolition and renovations to the access and passenger boarding bridge areas that will be adjacent to the new terminal.
