DFW Airport Awards $900M Project to Balfour Beatty Construction JV

Text size: A A

DFW International Airport awarded a $900-million contract to a joint venture team known as BARC for its seven-year Terminal Development Program, which includes Terminals A, B, C and E. The 36-year-old terminals primarily consist of original structures and building systems.

BARC is a joint venture formed to provide construction management services and includes Dallas-based Balfour Beatty Construction, Dallas-based Azteca Enterprises, Atlanta-based H.J. Russell & Co. and Dallas-based CARCON Industries.

The airport seeks to improve efficiency, passenger processing, and aesthetic appearance for the terminals. Design concepts call for consolidation of concessions areas into “villages” similar to the airport’s 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 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.
