The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority (SDCRAA) has announced that it is continuing its $3 billion expansion programme to enhance the airfield and replace the ageing Terminal 1 with a newly expanded terminal at San Diego International Airport (SAN).

Jacobs has been selected to support the project, with the selection being the latest in Jacobs’ history of serving the SDCRAA at San Diego Airport through its work in support of the ongoing Airport Development Plan (ADP). Dating back to 2005, Jacobs has provided strategic consulting services – most recently leading the development of the ADP – successfully delivering the State Final Environmental Impact Report and working to finalise the Federal Environmental Assessment for the ADP.

The SDCRAA estimates the contract, with a value not to exceed $35 million, will span five years, with the option for two one-year extensions. The contract includes the construction and maintenance of San Diego Airport’s airside apron, taxiways, runway areas, landside roads, parking lots, storm water system, security blast wall and associated utilities.   

Additionally, the project also includes the relocation of the existing parallel Taxiway B to meet FAA standards, building a second parallel taxiway to enhance capacity with safe movement of aircraft on the ground, a new aircraft parking apron to accommodate a future 30-gate Terminal 1 replacement and the capture, storage, treatment and reuse of all storm water on the airport site.

Ron Williams, Jacobs’ People and Places Solutions Senior Vice President and West Regional Director, said: “Partnering with SDCRAA to provide design services at San Diego International Airport is paramount to meet the needs of the airport’s growing passenger base and its important role in the region’s transportation and transit infrastructure. This landmark programme will enhance airfield safety while providing sustainable solutions, including the largest water capture, treatment and reuse system to be installed at an airport in the United States.”

    Why not purchase land planned for housing, Midway area, to extend the airport’s landing capabilities? San Diego would gain the much needed airport capacity it will require in the future.
