11 April 2017
PCL Construction Services Inc. has been awarded the Sea-Tac Baggage Handling System Optimisation (BHSO) project, valued at USD 52 million. The project, which was awarded in January 2017 and approved by the Port of Seattle in March, encompasses roughly 110,000 ft² within the baggage screening area. It includes a new checked baggage inspection system, a checked baggage resolution area, control room, and maintenance shop. The central terminal ramp to the basement level will be reconstructed, together with the existing retaining wall, and the utility systems will be relocated. “PCL is excited to be building with Sea-Tac Airport to improve its passenger experience and at the same time expand the facility’s security and baggage inspection system.” said Deron Brown, PCL’s president of US Buildings. “We look forward to working with Sea-Tac again to ensure another successful project at the airport.” The newly optimised baggage handling and screening system has been designed to expand the airport’s capacity to 66 million passengers annually. The project is scheduled to be complete in June 2019.
