San Diego, CA (May 24, 2017) – Turner Construction Company
and PCL Construction Services, Inc. in San Diego broke ground yesterday on the
first phase of the Federal Inspection Station Relocation and Expansion (FIS)
project at San Diego International Airport (SAN).
The project, a 50/50 joint venture partnership between Turner and
PCL, includes the full design-build of the new FIS facility at SAN’s Terminal 2
West. The new facility will house Customs and Border Protection as well as
other international passenger arrival services. Phase one includes full completion and activation of the FIS
addition, a technology hall for global entry passengers, baggage-handling
modifications, and associated airline relocations. Phase two requires completion of an additional dual
gatehouse, third-floor sterile corridor and associated holding rooms, and
airline office relocations.
The expansion comes as a result of faster than expected
growth of international passengers traveling through the airport. In 2016, the
airport welcomed more than 300,000 international arriving passengers, a number
that is expected to grow to 400,000 passengers by 2024.
The first phase will conclude in June
2018, with phase two complete in June 2019.
