Crisdel was awarded the contract for construction of new facilities and site preparation of 35 acres at the Tampa International Airport new SkyCenter development area. The three-phase capital program is anticipated to increase the airport’s capacity to 34 million annual passengers. In 2018, the airport served 21 million passengers, an all-time record. Existing office space within the airport will be moved away from the terminal and repurposed to allow added space for passengers and guests. TIA is building a 40,000 square-foot atrium and 230-foot-long pedestrian bridge that connects to the SkyConnect station at the rental car center, a new 650-foot commercial curbside, a 230-foot extension of the Rental Car Center’s remote curb that serves county buses, and reconfiguration of the Cell Phone Waiting Lot including new restrooms and Flight Information Display system.
The site development and construction of the atrium and walkway are expected to be completed in 2020.
