Five companies awarded airport contracts
Five companies have won contracts for the airport redevelopment project, including four Bermuda-based businesses.
Airport operator Skyport announced that Florida-based Thermoset Roofing has been awarded the roofing contract for the new passenger terminal building.
The company, which specialises in projects that withstand extreme weather, will be working with Bermuda-based Kaissa Ltd on the project.
Barclay Construction Ltd has been awarded a contract to carry out the electrical substation building work.
Gulfstream Construction Ltd has been contracted to complete slab on deck and slap on grade work on the new terminal, including formwork, concrete placing and finishing and reinforcing work for the building’s foundation.
Sousa’s Landscape Management Company has won the landscaping contract for the project.
Frank Ross, Aecon’s executive director of infrastructure, said: “It is extremely rewarding to be able to work with such hard-working and talented local and overseas contractors to make this airport redevelopment project a success.
“From day one, we have sought to employ as many Bermudians as possible, and this latest wave of awarded contracts once again proves our commitment to this.
“We are excited to see these new projects take shape over the next few weeks and months.”
The project is expected to be completed in 2020.
