The Challenges

Charlotte Douglas International Airport is one of the nation’s busiest airports and the second largest hub for American Airlines. It has seen substantial growth in recent years, increasing from 28 million passengers in 2005 to over 46 million total passengers in 2018, becoming the 6th busiest airport in total operations in the US. In order to meet the needs of its partners and passengers, CLT is implementing a $3.5 billion capital program. The program consists of a new elevated roadway and terminal curb front, terminal lobby expansion, rehabilitation of five existing concourses, new concourses for 19 gates, and substantial airfield projects including a new 4th parallel runway. Delivery methods being used for the current program are design-bid-build (DBB) with a general contractor (GC) and construction manager at risk (CMAR).
