The Sarasota Manatee Airport Authority on Monday ranked DeAngelis Diamond-Magnum Builders as its No. 1 firm for construction of a new concourse and expansion of the current concourse at Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.
The expansion, needed to stay ahead of record passenger growth, is projected to cost about $50 million.
Airport officials will now enter into contract negotiations with Sarasota-based DeAngelis Diamond-Magnum Builders, which has a long history of tackling construction projects at SRQ.
