DFW International Airport Awards Project to Balfour Beatty Construction
As part of a joint venture team known as BARC, Balfour Beatty Construction was selected for $900
million in preconstruction and construction services for DFW International Airport’s seven-year
Terminal Development Program.
Dallas, TX, April 05, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Terminals A, B, C, and E at the airport are approximately 36
years old and primarily consist of original structures and building systems. Through the program, the
airport seeks to improve efficiency, passenger processing, and aesthetic appearance for all four terminals.
Design concepts call for consolidation of concessions areas into villages similar to the airport's globally
acclaimed Terminal D.
The BARC team will be responsible for renovating terminals A and C and will build a rail station to
connect future routes for Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and Fort Worth Transportation Authority
(The T) to the airport. The project scope includes replacing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems,
improving roadways and infield parking garages, and preparing existing areas for new conveyance
systems for baggage handling. The phased project also includes building temporary facilities to relocate
occupants of areas that are under renovation.
“Our goal is to ensure that terminal operations—from security to baggage systems to concession
sales—continue to run smoothly throughout the project,” explains Karl Joeris, Operations Director
for Balfour Beatty Construction. “We seek to minimize the impact on travelers, airlines, and onsite
“We are proud to be part of a project that will help provide a better experience for travelers at DFW
Airport,” continues Joeris. “From a construction standpoint, it is an exciting and challenging project. And,
as a frequent traveler at the airport myself, I am looking forward to seeing the airport's vision for the
terminals come to life.”
