As part of its ongoing efforts to expand and modernize its offerings and facilities serving one of the Valley’s fastest-developing areas, the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority has issued a Request for Qualifications seeking a consultant or team to create a campus plan for a new terminal on the airport’s east side.
The full project description states: “Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority is soliciting for a consultant/team to provide a campus plan to include building space programming, site layouts, costs estimates and financing options for a proposed new expandable commercial passenger terminal initially right-sized and located on the eastside of the Airport. The Gateway Tomorrow project will be guided by realistic commercial passenger activity forecasts, the current FAA-accepted/approved Airport Master Plan, and active participation from PMGAA staff, representatives from PMGAA member communities, and other key stakeholders. The Authority is interested in a flexible design that can easily/quickly be expanded to handle the forecasted demand after the initial phase is completed and an understanding of the operational needs of the Airlines that serve the facility.”
