Clark a Key Player in LAX Modernization
LOS ANGELES – Clark Construction Group’s role in modernizing Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will continue at least until 2015. Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has awarded Clark, with joint venture partner McCarthy Building Companies, a $262 million contract for the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) Renovation, Apron, and Concourse Demolition. This is the company’s third contract at the airport in the past seven years.
The project includes four components: constructing a temporary security screening check point in the International Terminal; renovating six levels in the International Terminal, including functional modifications; connecting TBIT to the Bradley West Core Terminal, which is currently under construction; and demolishing the apron and concourse.
Once the existing concourse is demolished, the project team will reconfigure the airfield around the Bradley West Terminal, installing nearly one million square feet of new airfield.
LAX is in the midst of a multi-year, billion-dollar modernization effort to address critical needs for the airport’s continued success. Since 2006, Clark/McCarthy has performed more than one million square feet of construction to TBIT and the airport’s central utility plant, totaling $860 million.
Clark/McCarthy began work on the TBIT project in November 2013. Completion is anticipated in December 2015.
A joint venture of Los Angeles offices of Fentress Architects and HNTB is leading the design team.
