Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) has selected a joint venture led by global construction and development firm Skanska, along with New South Construction, FS360 and Synergy Construction, to add five additional gates at the north end of Concourse T at the airport.
The $124.5 million project will also rebuild a major portion of the North Terminal exit road, construct a Delta Air Lines ground support equipment facility and a fire station, as well as oversee relocations to the utilities’ infrastructure.
The project is part of the ATLNext expansion and renovation plan, which will increase capacity, renew and replace existing facilities and enhance the airport’s aesthetic appeal. Construction begins this month and is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
“We are proud to support the effort to help secure Hartsfield-Jackson’s position as the busiest and most efficient airport in the world,” said Scott Cannon, executive vice president and general manager of Skanska’s building operations in Georgia and South Carolina. “The Concourse T-North Extension and renovation effort will enhance the level of customer service, while meeting passengers’ changing needs.”
Skanska recently completed improvements to and modernization of the airside of the Central Passenger Terminal Complex at ATL, including installing new metal ceilings, LED lighting, flooring and wayfinding signage, among other renovations to the airside, the domestic concourses, train stations and tunnels.
