The Hillsborough County Aviation Authority (HCAA) and the Hensel Phelps | HNTB | Beck Design-Build team officially signed the $25 million Part 1 Agreement to provide design and preconstruction services for the $303 million Main Terminal Curbside Expansion Program.
This program includes the expansion of the curbsides, incorporating new elevated and at-grade lanes and vertical circulation buildings for both the blue and red sides. The vertical circulation buildings will include conditioned lobbies to provide a means for passengers to access the main terminal via elevators and escalators from the new lanes. The work will also include appropriate roadway and terminal signage, and other associated work deemed necessary to enable vehicle and passenger use of the curbsides, vertical circulation buildings and existing curbsides. These upgrades will further enhance the customer experience at Tampa International Airport (TPA).
The entire Hensel Phelps team is mobilizing immediately to provide design and preconstruction services for the program. Construction will begin in late 2019.
