Go-ahead for $1.3bn Denver airport project

12 Jan Denver City Council has given the green light to the US$1.3bn (£955m) final phase of the Great Hall project at the USA’s third-busiest airport.

The city council has approved Denver International Airport’s proposed plan for the Great Hall Completion, the final phase of the Great Hall project. The airport can now move forward with the design work.

The approved budget for the Great Hall Completion project is US$1.3bn, which will be funded by airport revenues.

Currently, Phase 2 of the Great Hall project is under construction and is due for completion by mid-2024. Hensel Phelps is the contractor for Phases 1 and 2 and will be the contractor for the Great Hall Completion. The first two phases will be constructed within the US$770 million budget that was established at the start of the current Great Hall construction work.

“We are grateful for the support of the Denver City Council and are excited and eager to get started on the final phase of this critical project,” said Denver International Airport (DEN) CEO Phil Washington. “It is essential that we finish the full build-out of the terminal now so we can prepare DEN for the future. By investing in our airport, we will generate more flights, more local jobs, increased revenue for the region, and more economic impact for our region.”
