Granite Continues Airfield Safety Enhancement Program at Tucson International Airport

TUCSON, AZ — Granite announces that it has been awarded an approximately $12 million contract by the Tucson Airport Authority (TAA) as part of the TAA’s estimated $400 million, multi-year Airfield Safety Enhancement Program at Tucson International Airport (TUS). This will be the third Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP 3) work package awarded as part of TAA’s previously announced $130 million multi-year Construction Manager at Risk project.

GMP 3 will handle the demolition of Runway 11R/29L, a runway used primarily by General Aviation, followed by a new, reconstructed runway, 12/30, as part of GMP 4. The primary GMP 3 scope of work includes demolition, clearing and grubbing, earthwork, storm drain, and fencing.

Granite’s Swan Plant, located within five miles of the project, will provide approximately 3,700 tons of bedding sand for the storm drain on the initial package.

“Granite has been working consistently at Tucson International Airport for the past 10-plus years and has built a solid reputation for its work product. We are the go-to contractor for airside civil work in a secure environment,” said Zach Thompson, Granite Area Manager. “Our safety record over the past year and a half has been exemplary with no air traffic incursions while reconstructing or constructing multiple taxiways and aprons.”

This phase of the project is anticipated to begin November 2023 and expected to be completed April 2024.
