The City of San Antonio has selected SpawGlass Contractors, Inc as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMR) for the Terminal A renovations at San Antonio International Airport.
As part of the overall capital improvement plan for the San Antonio International Airport, the City planned to build a new Terminal B and then renovate Terminal A after construction of Terminal B was completed. Terminal B has been completed and opened for operation in November 2010. As planned, the City has begun the Terminal A Renovation Project which will improve and update Terminal A, built in 1984, to make it more consistent with the new Terminal B Building.
“This is an exciting time for San Antonio International Airport. We are going to give a twenty eight year old building a fresh look,” said Frank R. Miller, Aviation Director for The City of San Antonio. “We want to bring Terminal A up the standard we have set with Terminal B, with the look and feel and modern conveniences.”
SpawGlass Contractors, Inc. will collaborate with the City and architectural and engineering firm, Reynolds, Smith, and Hills Inc., during the finalization of design and construction documents. SpawGlass Contractors, Inc. will provide constructability reviews, budgeting, cost estimating, and phasing, scheduling, presentation to stakeholders, and value engineering. Construction on Terminal A will include renovations to the interior finishes, signage, restrooms and furnishings.
“SpawGlass is excited to continue our work at the San Antonio International Airport with the Renovation of Terminal A,” said Chuck Calvin, SpawGlass President, San Antonio Region. ”The airport is often considered the gateway to our city, and we recognize the importance of making this renovation a positive experience for visitors, airport personnel, city officials and our community.”
Additionally, replacement and upgrades to mechanical, electrical and plumbing infrastructure/controls, replacement and upgrades of escalators and elevators, curbside ADA upgrades, sprinkler system upgrades, and miscellaneous building system repairs and replacement are planned. Project construction is anticipated to begin in May 2012 and is estimated to be completed by late Fall 2013.
