The new Terminal 1 at San Diego International Airport is a 30-gate facility that will replace the original 1960s facility. It had grown impractical for the demands of modern air travel. The new T1 will encompass 1.2 million square feet once completed.
Turner and Flatiron have formed a fully-integrated joint venture to deliver this next-generation airport facility. Flatiron is taking the lead on demolition, grading, paving, underground utilities, roadway construction and other civil works.
The new T1 will open in phases, with the first phase expected to finish in 2025, and the final set of new gates opening up in 2027.
Utilizing the progressive design-build delivery method, the Turner-Flatiron joint venture is working with San Diego International Airport to deliver a safe, forward-thinking design that will be enjoyed by the travelling public for generations to come. Besides the terminal itself, a new three-lane access road will take thousands of vehicles off nearby thoroughfares. Seven bridges are part of the new roadway construction design. Outdoor check-in pavilions will allow for more space, allowing travelers to not feel crowded as they begin their journey towards their gates.
The Turner-Flatiron team has completed several key aviation projects, including sites in San Francisco, Sacramento and Denver.
