Aviation Construction /

A Collaborative Aviation Partner Building World-Class Airport Facilities

The air travel  industry continues to evolve, with new technologies and new demands for security and modernization constantly emerging. This means expansion, renovation and new construction of airports and airport facilities. Such a dynamic industry requires a construction company with deep aviation expertise, which is why so many in the industry turn to The Weitz Company. Our airport construction services are delivered with a design-build approach that combines design, engineering, and construction in one streamlined process that prioritizes safety over all else.

We have found success working with public and private clients in the aviation sector by repeatedly executing projects of all sizes and delivery methods. As a valued stakeholder invested in sharing visions for the future, our collaborative approach to airside and landside projects serves as a key differentiator with airport authorities, transit agencies, local governments, fixed-base operators, and designers. The expertise and creativity we possess help drive decisions about end-user value, passenger safety and the building’s life cycle all while prioritizing design to ensure construction deliverables without impacting day-to-day operations. For these reasons and more, we have earned a reputation as one of the top airport construction contractors in the marketplace today.

Developed over three decades, our balanced portfolio includes everything from terminals and group 1 hangars to people movers and CONRACs domestically and internationally. We firmly understand the regulations for aviation facilities (including military and federal installations) and embrace opportunities to uncover solutions to challenges that are burdensome to clients, airlines and passengers. Because of this knowledge, passion and customer-focused approach, we have become an emerging leader in aviation construction to upgrade aging infrastructure and build new, world-class airports.
