We are proud to play such a critical role in MWAA’s journey to transform the passenger experience.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) May 24, 2018
Turner Construction Company is pleased to share that the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) has issued the firm notice to proceed with construction of a new concourse at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA). Part of the airport’s ongoing Terminal B/C Redevelopment Plan—also known as Project Journey—the $374 million project aims to streamline and enhance the comfort and convenience of the nearly 24 million passengers who travel through the airport each year.
“We are proud to play such a critical role in MWAA’s journey to transform the passenger experience,” said Joseph Graziosi, Turner Project Manager, noting that the new concourse will provide a more convenient passenger boarding experience, in part by replacing bus-served gates with passenger boarding bridges. “The new concourse will also offer a brighter and more modern environment, with improved sight lines between concession areas and gates,” he continued. “This gives travelers the ability to easily and directly see the status of flights.” Additional passenger service enhancements include new retail and dining options, an airline club and more device charging outlets.
Turner has already demolished two hangars and the MWAA’s former office building to make way for the new concourse, which includes a two-level connector building with public circulation space, moving walkways and electric vehicle charging stations, all connected to a three-level concourse with 14 regional aircraft gates. At approximately 230,000 square feet, the project will also provide additional concessions and traveler and staff amenities.
Ongoing work at DCA includes a new concourse aircraft parking apron and two 50,000-square-foot Security Screening Checkpoints.
The new concourse project is scheduled for completion in 2021.
