GSP renovations making headway

Staff Report

Construction crews have cleared space to begin work on the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport’s new terminal.

Construction walls currently block most of GSP’s south end, much of which previously housed rental car agencies. Upon completion, the south end will include an additional baggage carousel and food, beverage and retail locations.

Upcoming area renovations include curbside canopies, a covered walkway connecting Garage A to the terminal, and a glass terminal facade, replacing the current concrete exterior.

Construction of GSP’s $115 million terminal renovation and expansion began in May. It will be conducted in three phases through early 2016.

Skanska Moss, a joint venture between Skanska USA Building of New York and Moss & Associates of Greenville, is serving as construction manager at-risk. Jacobs Engineering of Pasadena, Calif., is serving as program manager and RS&H is serving as lead architect and engineer.

GSP will seek as many local subcontractors as possible, according to a news release. The terminal will remain operational throughout the entire process.

Restrooms and escalators on the airport’s south end have closed for renovation. Two baggage carousels will remain fully operational throughout the south end construction.

The outside curb in front of the south end will soon be inaccessible. Those picking up passengers can use the GSP cellphone lot while waiting for passengers to arrive.
