Clark Returns to Sea-Tac for IAF Design-Build

SEATTLE – Clark is returning to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac) ten years after completing the airport's South Terminal Expansion. The Port of Seattle awarded the company a $420 million design-build contract for an International Arrivals Facility (IAF). Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, San Francisco/New York and The Miller Hull Partnership, Seattle, are the project's designers.
Clark will lead the design-build team in delivering the three-story IAF on east side of Sea-Tac's Concourse A. The scope of work also includes an elevated sterile corridor to serve international passengers, and an iconic bridge that will span approximately 900 linear feet from the new IAF to the south satellite. To minimize impact to airport operations and expedite installation, the bridge will be prefabricated offsite. When complete, the bridge will offer views of Mount Rainer and the Olympic Mountains. 
Sea-Tac is the fastest growing of the top 20 U.S. airports and was the 13th busiest in 2014. By building a new International Arrivals Facility, the Port of Seattle Commission is striving to increase its capacity to accommodate present and future international travel growth, improve its processing of arriving international travelers and their baggage, and provide a world-class traveler experience that makes Sea-Tac a preferred West Coast hub.
Atkinson Construction will play a key role in the bridge construction. 
The project is being designed to achieved LEED® Silver certification.
Substantial completion is expected in early 2019.
