airport committee hears about construction progress | Government and Politics
Construction of a new airport terminal is progressing with a completion date of February 1.
Members of the Fremont Municipal Airport Advisory Committee discussed the terminal during their meeting on Friday morning.
Steel construction components for the new terminal arrived on Tuesday afternoon.
“I came by yesterday and they were putting on steel. This process is moving forward, ”said Dave Goedeken, Director of Public Works for the Town of Fremont.
Fremont City Council awarded the contract to build the new terminal to Omaha-based Ronco Construction for $ 1.667 million. The $ 1.7 million project will be built entirely with local funding.
Goedeken said there was a delay of a few weeks in obtaining the building components.
“It’s just the story of construction this year. It seems that everything is in short supply, ”he said.
The completion date has been changed from January 1 to February 1 due to the delay.
Goedeken said the company has until mid-March 2022 to complete the project.
Data from a report by engineering consultant Burns & McDonnell indicates that the current terminal was built in 1962. The facility needs new heating and air conditioning systems and other upgrades.
