Bob Moore Construction Company was the General Contractor for the Trammell Crow Company’s Air CargoCentre™ III and AirFreight & LogisticsCentres™ at DFW Airport in Texas. This four-building project supports parking for three Boeing 747-400F or two Airbus A380 aircraft. No other airport in the United States has a cargo facility specifically designed to accommodate the A380.

General Contractor Bob Moore Construction Company has completed the Trammell Crow Company’s Air CargoCentre™ III and AirFreight & LogisticsCentres™ at Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport. This four-building project included the 116,000 SF Air CargoCentre™ III and AirFreight & LogisticsCentres™ 1, 2 and 3 (sized 114,000, 113,000 and 54,000 SF respectively)

“Response to the buildings has been exceptional,” said Steven Bradford, Principal, Trammell Crow Company. “The project has been extremely well received by all the international carriers and received great reviews from third party handling companies. DFW Airport views this as a successful, high profile project which will provide long term benefits for the airport and its customers.”

A key feature of the Air CargoCentre™ design is that it will support parking for three Boeing 747-400F or two Airbus A380 aircraft. No other airport in the United States has a cargo facility that was specifically designed to accommodate the A380. Air CargoCentre™ III also features a 125-foot clear span bay for material handling, with mezzanines at both entrances.

“The new facilities will serve a huge role for the domestic and international air cargo shipping business at the airport,” said Robert Brandt, Senior VP of Development Services for Trammell Crow Company, Dallas/Fort Worth. “They fill the last available spot on the west side of the airport, which is an excellent location with good access to adjacent freeways. They’re state of the art facilities and are the first in the country to support the Airbus A380 aircraft, so they’re very well positioned for the future in many respects.”

The AirFreight & LogisticsCentres™ are designed to support single or multiple third-party logistics providers and shippers. The buildings have access to the aircraft apron area via a security gate that is manned 24 hours per day, seven days per week. This integrates the complex with the airfield, without having the buildings inside the secured area themselves. This design will increase operational efficiencies while reducing truck traffic and congestion at the airport.

“What we built is functionally a part of the secured perimeter for an international airport,” said Kyle Whitesell, Senior Project Manager for Bob Moore Construction. “We had to maintain the integrity of that perimeter even as we built the buildings. That took a lot of communication and attention by all parties involved, particularly our subcontractors and site superintendent Steve Barrons, and they did a great job with it. We had a tremendous team for this project. Robert Brandt and Steven Bradford with Trammell Crow provided superb leadership, and people like Naresh Shahani, Doug Bryan and Curtis Inglis with DFW Airport gave us an amazing level of help, guiding us through the permitting, inspection and closeout process.”

Brandt was pleased with his experience with Bob Moore Construction. “I loved working with Kyle,” he said. “He was a huge support and played a key role in developing our budgets. Throughout the project, Kyle was always very accessible. I could almost always get him on the phone, and he was always responsive to my calls about budgeting and scheduling, which developers love. That’s key for a developer for determining whether a project has any legs or not.”

Bradford also enjoyed the working relationship with Bob Moore Construction Company. “We worked with several people at Bob Moore Construction, all the way up to Phillip Bell, the president. We found the organization to be extremely professional, responsive, highly qualified and competent. Kyle is the essence of customer service which is why everyone on our team likes to work with him.”
