Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and the city of Austin Small Minority Business Resources Department will host a virtual session on an upcoming contracting opportunity.
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport
The online event is scheduled from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. February 10 in advance of opening the solicitation in early March for the Airport Program Management Support Consultants (PMSC) Services contract that will support the Airport Expansion and Development Program (AEDP).
Programs under the AEDP will increase airport capacity by optimizing the Barbara Jordan Terminal and enabling the airport’s future expansion with utility and airfield infrastructure.
Engineering design is needed for the airfield infrastructure, utilities, and drainage in the south airport area. A design request for qualifications (RFQ) is scheduled for release January 31, and the airport plans to release an RFQ for a construction manager at risk in March/April 2022. The project is anticipated to start in summer 2022.
Other AEDP improvements entail building a new central utility plant and electrical substation and removing existing structures to prepare for construction activities. The airport also will prepare a midfield concourse with more than 10 new gates and taxiways.
