BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – In a regularly scheduled Board of Directors meeting, the Birmingham Airport Authority Board of Directors received a Terminal Modernization Project update during the last scheduled meeting in 2013.
Jeff Hart of Brasfield & Gorrie Contractors, Terminal Modernization Project manager, outlined the work completed since the last board meeting in November. Storm piping has been completed and fine grading has begun yet delayed due to weather the last two weeks while other work on the building’s interior continues to progress. Work on Concourse C includes exterior wall construction, interior wall framing, and exterior panels have been started. Drywall on the north side of the terminal is in progress and the front exterior paneling will begin at the end of the month. “When you compare the renderings drawn by the architect in 2010 and the building’s aerial photograph taken just last month, the project is really taking shape and they have done a good job of seeing it through,” said Hart.
The Birmingham Airport Authority’s project coordinator, Tom Wesley, reported no major changes to the projects financial status report. The project is slated to be complete by summer 2014.
