Hillsborough County Aviation Authority Awards the New Airside D to the Hensel Phelps Design-Build Team

TAMPA, FL — The Hillsborough County Aviation Authority (HCAA) awards the design-build team consisting of Hensel Phelps, HNTB Corporation, Gensler, and The Beck Group the contract to design and construct the new Airside D at the Tampa International Airport (TPA) in Florida.

The HCAA Board of Directors approved Hensel Phelps as their design-build partner after the team earned first place during the procurement process. Design will begin in August of 2023 with construction expected to start in 2024.

“We are very proud to be selected for the Authority’s most significant project," said Joe Giunta, Operations Manager at Hensel Phelps. "Our people place tremendous value in our relationship with the Authority and look forward to the coming years of continuous work together.”

The new ground up airside will allow TPA to accommodate an additional 13 million passengers and will include 16 gates serving international and domestic fights. This 585,000-square-foot project will include concessions space, TSA and CBP security facilities, and will incorporate the newest technologies for bag screening, gate check-in, and baggage processing.
