IRVINE — A private consortium that includes Fluor Daniel, the chief operating arm of Fluor Corp., has been awarded a $1.1-billion contract to build a new international arrival building at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Fluor Daniel will manage the construction project, which calls for a 1.4-million-square-foot facility to replace the existing 38-year-old international terminal. The project is part of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey's $3.4-billion plan to renovate the aging airport. More than 17 million international passengers used JFK last year.
Fluor officials could not be reached for comment, but earlier have said that projects like the JFK revamp are critical to the company's growth.
The consortium is led by Philadelphia development company LCOR Inc. and Schiphol USA, an arm of European airport management firm Schiphol. The group will develop and manage the new terminal facility.
