Firms picked for airport subcontract work

Three Bermudian companies and three overseas companies have been awarded contracts to work on the new passenger terminal building at LF Wade International Airport.

The installation of drywall and metal ceilings in the new terminal will be a joint venture between Bermuda's Greymane Contracting and Foursite Drywall of Toronto.

Correia Construction has been selected to install masonry blockwork and concrete walls, while the contract for placing and finishing the concrete for the main floor slab of the passenger terminal building was awarded to local contractor Sea Link Construction Limited.

Supply of doors, frames and hardware has been subcontracted to Apex Industries Limited of New Brunswick, Canada, while the supply and installation of airport millwork that includes all of the counters in the new terminal, has been awarded to Fish Construction of Texas.

Frank Ross, Aecon's executive director of infrastructure, said: “We are excited to be working with fantastic local and overseas subcontractors on the airport redevelopment project. From the beginning of the project, we continue to make every effort to hire as many local businesses as possible and only utilise overseas companies when necessary. We are pleased with the progress thus far and are well on our way to deliver a first-class terminal for Bermuda.”

The redevelopment at the airport was recognised with the IJIGlobal magazine award for the ‘2017 North America Airport Deal of the Year', and it is expected to be completed in 2020.

Meanwhile, cosmetic upgrades to the existing terminal building are also ongoing, including interior painting, recarpeting and the refurbishment of the duty free retail space and exterior painting.

Subcontracts awarded: the new terminal at LF Wade International Airport is scheduled to open in 2020
