The Weitz Co., which is headquartered in Des Moines, has been selected by Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to upgrade its Terminal 4 Baggage Handling System for an estimated $50 million in construction costs.
The project award encompasses preconstruction services and construction in partnership with JSM & Associates. Weitz and JSM have successfully completed years of baggage handling system projects together. The two companies plan to modernize the 32-year-old Phoenix terminal system in part by using a phased design and implementation plan, including contingency planning, showing a smooth transition between new and existing systems while not affecting active airport operations and passenger experience. BIM Technology will also be used to show work in 3D, which increases cost certainty and project communication.
The terminal upgrade project is expected to begin in 2024 and be completed in 2027.
