Balfour Beatty’s Building operations and joint venture partner Metcon Inc., in association with Right Build and Varnedoe Construction, have been selected by Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority to deliver an approximately $650 million phased construction program at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).
As part of its Vision 2040 Master Plan, the construction program at RDU will support growth in passenger volume and the ability for airport facilities to meet the current and future demand for aviation in the Research Triangle region.
Providing construction manager-at risk services, the Balfour Beatty and Metcon joint venture will deliver the expansion of Park Economy 3, improvements to the Aviation Parkway and National Guard Drive interchange and the Terminal 2 Landside Expansion program over the course of multiple years.
The Park Economy 3 expansion includes expanding the existing parking area and delivering 8,000 additional parking spaces to accommodate the PG-1 and PG-2 replacement and for future, increased passenger growth. A multi-level law enforcement and parking operations building will also be constructed with covered walkways, new bus shelters and canopies. Construction activities for the Park Economy 3 expansion will commence Fall 2023 with a scheduled delivery in 2025.
