US-based real estate builders and construction company Parsons-Odebrecht Joint Venture (JV) has secured a contract from Miami-Dade County to improve baggage-handling systems at Florida’s Miami International Airport (MIA).

Under the terms of the deal, Parsons-Odebrecht will replace the in-line security screening portion of the airport’s South Terminal baggage-handling system.

The company will also deploy new and automated sortation technology for the Central Terminal baggage-handling system, including outbound baggage conveyance applications, electrical and mechanical modifications, and power distribution solutions.

In addition, the scope of the project includes a 60,000ft2 expansion to the existing terminal building, and a post-security corridor connecting Terminal G to Terminal H at MIA.

The deal for pre-construction services is valued at $7.5m, while the construction contract includes a not-to-exceed budget of $177m.

The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has provided a grant of $101m to Miami-Dade County to support the current project.

The participation of local small business and disadvantaged business enterprises (DBE) in the project is estimated to be more than $25m.

Once completed, the new project will not only improve security and operating efficiency at MIA, but will also open new opportunities for about 600 local direct and indirect jobs.
