Skanska-Halmar JV lands $1.2B JFK airport job
- The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has selected a Skanska and Halmar International joint venture for the $1.24 billion design-build contract to improve infrastructure at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, New York.
- Project work will include improved roadways, a parking garage and a pedestrian bridge. It is part of the $19 billion investment to overhaul JFK into a “world-class airport,” according to the announcement Monday.
- Swedish contractor and developer Skanska and Nanuet, New York-based Halmar International will work alongside lead designer Centreville, Virginia-based Parsons Corp.
Work will include constructing the new on-airport roadway transportation network, retaining walls, bridges and utility relocations and upgrades.
“The new two main loops will simplify roadway operation and create a more travel-friendly experience for the more than 62 million passengers who come through JFK each year,” Mark Fialkowski, president of Parsons’ Mobility Solutions business unit, said in the announcement.
The parking garage in the Ground Transportation Center will have 1,950 spaces and electric vehicle charging stations. A 400-foot-long elevated pedestrian bridge will connect the garage to the airport’s Terminal One, which is currently under construction by AECOM Tishman. Additionally, the parking structure will be built with provisions for solar panels.
The project is scheduled for completion in December 2027.
