Hochtief to manage $700m Denver airport expansion

A joint venture between two Hochtief subsidiaries, Flatiron Construction Corporation and Turner Construction, has been chosen to deliver a $700m expansion of Denver International Airport.

The project will add than 530,000 sq ft to the airport’s Concourse A and 91,000 sq ft to Concourse B.

The expansion will also add 16 aircraft gates, two international nodes and about 10152 sq ft of aircraft-rated pavement.

Aaron Wiebelhaus, Turner vice president, said: "Together with our partner Flatiron, we’re gearing up to streamline and enhance passenger experience."

Work on the project is due to begin this month.

Last August, Denver City Council approved a $1.8bn public-private partnership to redesign the Jeppesen Terminal at the airport.

Denver Airport is the largest airport in the US by total land area and the sixth busiest, with 58 million passengers using the airport annually.
