Earlier this month, Denver International Airport completed a four-year-long expansion project that added 39 new gates across three concourses. The expansion will increase gate capacity by 30% and brings a host of new amenities.
“Denver International Airport continues to strive toward effectively serving 100 million annual passengers within the next 10 years. The opening of these new expansion areas is significant for the airport’s future,” said Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock. “Not only is there a brand-new facility with 10 gates at the end of Concourse B-East, six of the 12 new gates on Concourse A-West can accommodate international flights bringing more visitors, opportunities and economic growth to our region.”
New amenities highlighted include:
More restaurants and shops.
Environmentally sustainable lighting and solar energy generation.
Comfortable seating, charging stations and outdoor decks with views of the runways and the Rocky Mountains.
New ground loading facilities and airline support spaces.
The project was built by two joint ventures. Holder Construction and FCI Constructors on the East concourses and Turner Construction and Flatiron on the West. The Designers of the project were HNTB Corp. and Jacobs Engineering Group.
Currently, there is another project underway at the Airport. The Great Hall project is projected for a final phase completion in 2028. Phases 1 and 2 are being built by general contractor, Hensel Phelps.
