City officials would prefer that you don’t call it a “debacle,” or even a “mistake.” They say it’s a “transition to a new approach to delivery.”
Whatever you want to call it, one of the largest contracts ever awarded by the City and County of Denver is being scrapped years ahead of the project’s scheduled completion.
After months of escalating disputes over cost overruns and delays, Denver International Airport will terminate its $1.8 billion contract with the development consortium it chose to oversee a massive terminal renovation project in 2017, officials said today, August 13. DIA CEO Kim Day said the airport notified Great Hall Partners of the termination on Monday night, following a breakdown in a formal mediation process that had begun earlier this summer.
