Skanska-Led JV Tapped to Build $125M T-North Extension at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport
A joint venture led by global construction and development firm Skanska, along with New South Construction, FS360 and Synergy Construction has been tapped to construct five additional gates at the north end of Concourse T at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The project is slated to cost $124.5 million.
In addition to building the gates, the joint venture will also rebuild a major portion of the North Terminal exit road, construct a Delta Air Lines ground support equipment facility and a fire station, as well as oversee relocations to the utilities’ infrastructure. The project is part of a broader expansion plan at the airport, which will increase capacity, renew and replace existing facilities and enhance the airport’s aesthetic appeal.
“We are proud to support the effort to help secure Hartsfield-Jackson’s position as the busiest and most efficient airport in the world,” said Scott Cannon, executive vice president and general manager of Skanska’s building operations in Georgia and South Carolina. “The Concourse T-North Extension and renovation effort will enhance the level of customer service, while meeting passengers’ changing needs.”
