WICHITA FALLS REGIONAL AIRPORT
The replacement terminal includes passenger ticketing, baggage processing and passenger screening, restrooms, administrative offices, security systems, and passenger boarding bridges. During preconstruction, Trinity Hughes Construction performed multiple subcontractor outreaches to engage and excite local businesses about bidding the project. Outside of the special systems dedicated to airport construction, more than 80 percent of the major work items were procured through subcontractors in Wichita Falls. Working with the City and the design team in the early stages of design allowed our team to shorten the overall duration of the project, moving the original opening date of March 2015 forward for the first flight to occur prior to Christmas 2014. In addition to decreasing the overall schedule, Trinity Hughes Construction provided $1.4 million in value engineering during preconstruction and another $350,000 during construction.
