MWBEs to Network with the Design-Build Firm Developing Terminal One

Newark Liberty International Airport will host a Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) Outreach Forum in Newark on Wednesday, March 28, for professional design, construction, and engineering firms interested in contracting opportunities with lead designer Tutor Perini/Parsons, the firm chosen to develop the airport’s state-of-the-art Terminal One.

The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) Campus Center, Ballroom A, located at 150 Bleeker Street in Newark on the second floor.

The Port Authority is investing $2.7 billion in the Terminal One Redevelopment Program, which includes plans for construction of a sparkling new facility featuring approximately a 1-million square foot, 33-gate common use domestic terminal that will vastly improve the travel experience for airport passengers.

Tutor Perini/Parsons, a fully integrated joint venture of Tutor Perini Corporation and Parsons Transportation Group Inc., was selected to design and build the new terminal.

Certified subcontractors, vendors and consultants will be hired to complete the project work.

“Minority-and women-owned business enterprises are vital to our region’s economy, and this project provides extensive MWBE contract opportunities,” said Board Chairman Kevin O’Toole. “The Terminal One project overall is expected to generate more than $4.6 billion in regional economic activity, create more than 23,000 job years and provide more than $1.9 billion in wages. This event will ensure that locally-owned businesses are aware of and able to compete for work on this extraordinary project.”

“The Port Authority is committed to an inclusionary contracting process that involves business enterprises that are minority- and women-owned,” said Executive Director Rick Cotton. “We recognize the value of these skilled entrepreneurs and, over the course of this program, will continue to rely on certified MWBE subcontractors, vendors and consultants to help build this critically important redevelopment program.”

Construction is under way on roadway-related infrastructure projects, and work on the new terminal is anticipated to begin by mid-year, with a partial opening scheduled for 2021 and full operation in 2022. The terminal’s phased-in approach is designed to minimize customer inconvenience, while providing for the implementation of new technology, superior dining, retail and amenities that Port Authority customers expect and deserve.

The remainder of the various Terminal One Redevelopment Program projects will be delivered using a traditional design-build delivery model. The Port Authority will be issuing procurement documents for the various component projects. Available business opportunities are posted on Newark Liberty’s redevelopment website –
