Sterling Construction (STRL) subsidiary J. Banicki Construction (JBC) has secured an aviation contract from the City of Phoenix Aviation Department and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the additional work phase at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) in Arizona, US.

According to the $10.5m contract, JBC will be responsible for the reconstruction of an additional share of the apron work at Terminal 4 South one Concourse at the airport.

This will be another phase in the final stage of the $71m project, which was commenced by Sterling Construction in 2015 and involves the construction of a new concrete aircraft apron around Terminal 4 South, which is currently under construction.

The company stated that the project will be executed together with the progressing Terminal 4 Concourse construction.

Apart from other paving works, around 48,000 square yards of airfield concrete and additional apron-associated infrastructure will be constructed under this project.

Sterling CEO Joe Cutillo said: “We are glad to have been selected to replace the apron at Sky Harbor’s Terminal 4 South, especially after winning the project to reconstruct the apron at the North Concourse earlier last month. Our long history and strong track record at Sky Harbor was one of the leading drivers to winning this job and continuing our ongoing work at Terminal 4, which began in 2015. This project will help improve aircraft ground traffic and safety at one of the busiest airports in the nation.”

Last month, JBC secured an aviation contract from the City of Phoenix Aviation Department to rebuild the north apron of Terminal 4 at PHX.

The value of the contract was approximately $10.3m.

Sterling Construction Company has various subsidiaries within three sectors focusing on heavy civil, residential projects and speciality services in the US.
