DALLAS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Balfour Beatty Construction, in partnership with James A. Cummings,
Inc., was awarded a contract to manage construction for the Terminal 4 Gate Replacement at Fort Lauderdale-
Hollywood International Airport. Valued at approximately $100 million, the project is part of Broward County
Aviation Department’s $1 billion expansion program to provide a user-friendly, world-class facility for the 21 million
passengers who travel through the airport each year.
Intended to make room for the extension of the south runway, the gate replacement project represents the first of
two phases that will replace the existing concourse and alter its orientation from north-south to east-west. The
project also includes creating expansive, diverse interior spaces to support the airport’s growing international market.
Balfour Beatty Construction has had a successful 30-year history with the airport, which began with a series of
expansions in the 1980s, spanning multiple terminals.
“Our team is thrilled about the opportunity to work at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport again,” says
Rob Gillette, vice president at Balfour Beatty. “We’ve been successfully partnering with Cummings for more than 14
years, and this will be our fourth project together at the airport.”
Preconstruction for the project is slated to begin in Fall 2010, with phased construction scheduled to start in Summer
Balfour Beatty Construction’s portfolio includes projects at Washington Dulles International Airport, Miami
International Airport, Orlando International Airport, DFW International Airport, and Jacksonville International
Airport. Recently, in a joint venture known as BARC, the company was awarded preconstruction and construction
services for DFW International Airport’s seven-year, $900 million Terminal Development Program.
