Seattle, WA (March 28, 2017) – PCL Construction Services, Inc. is pleased to announce it has been awarded the Sea-Tac Baggage Handling System Optimization project, valued at $52 million.
The project, awarded in January 2017 and approved by the Port of Seattle this month, encompasses roughly 110,000 square feet within the baggage screening area. It includes a new checked baggage inspection system, a checked baggage resolution area, control room, maintenance shop, and a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) break room. The central terminal ramp to the basement level will be reconstructed along with the existing retaining wall, and the utility systems will be relocated.
“PCL is excited to be building with Sea-Tac Airport to improve its passenger experience and at the same time expand the facility’s security and baggage inspection system.” said Deron Brown, PCL’s president of US Buildings. “We look forward to working with Sea-Tac again to ensure another successful project at the airport.”
The newly optimized baggage handling and screening system has been designed to expand the airport’s capacity to 66 million passengers annually. The project is scheduled to begin in April 2017 and to be complete in June 2019.
