MWAA: Meet the Primes Featuring Turner Construction

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority will host a Meet the Primes featuring Turner Construction. This event will inform you of the plans related to the new concourse at Washington Dulles International Airport to replace outdoor boarding areas currently used by regional flights, upgrade aircraft service facilities, and bring new conveniences and amenities to passengers. The new Tier-2 Concourse East will be a modern 14-gate facility with convenient access to the airport’s underground Aerotrain system and will include new shops, restaurants, and other customer services, as well as the latest aircraft-servicing technologies to accommodate future needs. It will replace gates built in the 1990s at the eastern end of Concourse A, where many regional-flight passengers currently go.

The new concourse also meets additional criteria required by the FAA grant program, including:

  • Improved convenience and connectivity for travelers navigating the airport
  • More space (400,000 square feet versus 110,000 square feet in the current facility) for larger seating areas, more concessions, airline lounges, ADA-compliant restrooms, and other amenities
  • Larger operational areas for servicing aircraft, handling baggage and other airport and airline support functions
  • Enhanced sustainability features, including electric vehicles to service aircraft and carry passengers, increased usage of the electric Aerotrain to move passengers to and from the new gates; energy-efficient construction featuring LED lighting, high R-value insulation and high-efficiency climate control systems that will follow LEED Silver building standards.


The event is finished.
