Jacobs has been selected by the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority (SDCRAA) to provide designing services for the $3 billion expansion project to improve the airfield and replace the aging Terminal 1 at San Diego International Airport with a newly expanded terminal.
The Jacobs contract, with a value not-to-exceed $35 million, spans five years with the option for two one-year extensions. It includes construction and maintenance of airside apron, taxiways, runway areas, landside roads, parking lots, storm water system, security blast wall and associated utilities.
The project includes relocation of existing parallel Taxiway B to meet FAA standards, building a second parallel taxiway to enhance capacity with safe movement of aircraft on the ground, a new aircraft parking apron to accommodate a future 30 gate Terminal 1 replacement and the capture, storage, treatment and reuse of all storm water on the airport site.
The authority wants to begin construction by 2021 and complete the first 19 gates by 2024.
