When McCarran International Airport’s $2.4-billion third terminal complex opens on June 27, it will mark the end of a decade-long string of big projects in the region. Touted as the state’s largest public works job ever, construction proved tricky with more than 100 contracting companies working simultaneously on multiple phases in close vicinity around a fully operating airport. Despite the size and complexity, the project still finished on time and on budget. All told, it was the largest expansion in the airport’s 64-year history, and brings the four-runway, 2,800-acre McCarran to final build-out at 117 gates.
TMCx Solutions provided the commissioning authority under the mechanical and plumbing contractor as their commissioning liason. There was four phases, pre-functional, start-up, functional and turnover.
