PHOENIX – A contractor already familiar with the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport will be building the new concourse at Terminal 4 next year.

McCarthy Building will work on the $310 million project, the company announced Wednesday. The St. Louis, Missouri-based general contractor has an office in the Valley and helped expand Sky Train to Terminal 3 and did some work on another project at Terminal 4.

The terminal is the largest and busiest at the airport and houses Southwest and American airlines and British Airways, among others. Eight more gates will be added for Southwest.

“Our teams are well acquainted with the nuances of managing a construction project at a busy airport,” Justin Kelton, president of McCarthy’s southwest region said in a statement, pointing to the previous work at Sky Harbor.

City officials announced last year that Southwest would occupy the 130,000-square-foot concourse.

Plans included a connector bridge across Sky Harbor Boulevard and another bridge that would allow access to the D concourse.

Checkpoint D will be expanded, there will be more ticket counters and a baggage carousel, along with concessions.

Terminal 4 has 86 gates and sees over 80 percent of the airport’s passengers.

The airport served 43,921,670 passengers in 2017.

McCarthy said construction would begin in May and was expected be completed in early 2022. There would be minimal impact to other parts of the terminal, according to the statement.
