Winnipeg Airport Authority
548,000 sq. ft.
EllisDon was the General Contractor for the construction of the new 548,000 SF Air Terminal Building (ATB) for the Winnipeg Airports Authority (WAA). This contract was a major component of WAA’s total airport site redevelopment program, which had a total construction commitment of $585 million covering the period of 2007-2011.
Over and above constructing this large terminal building, the contract also included the complete renewal of the baggage handling systems, a new Central Utilities Building / Plant (CUP), as well as the construction of a 1-km underground tunnel between the ATB and CUP that connects all services. Furthermore, the EllisDon team was required to construct a new 531-m elevated roadway and bridge that is adjacent to the new ATB, as well as complete the parkade which included car rental facilities and spaces.
