The contract, award by airport operator the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ), will be carried out by the Tutor Perini/Parsons (TPP Team).
The $1.41 billion project includes design and construction of a new one million square foot, 33-gate common-use terminal building and ramp; a fully enclosed, elevated pedestrian walkway; the N60 bridge; and related infrastructure.
Parsons will perform a dual role on the project, working with Tutor Perini on the construction of Terminal 1 while also providing design services.
“PANYNJ’s Terminal 1 project represents Parsons’ first design-build joint venture in New Jersey, and we are excited and proud to bring our construction and design expertise to the table,” said Mike Johnson, president of the Parsons Group.
The new terminal will include dining, retail, and other amenities and is slated to be fully operational in 2022.
According to PANYNJ, the project will provide passengers with a world-class customer experience, create jobs, and boost the region’s economy.
The redevelopment programme, approved by the Port Authority Board of Commissioners in March 2017, is expected to create 9,000 jobs and $600 million in wages, and generate $3.3 billion in regional economic activity.
PANYNJ reveals that the new Terminal A will have the capacity to accommodate 13.6 million passengers annually, while retaining the flexibility for future growth and expansion, serve larger aircraft and meet changes in passenger demand.
