Firms ranked for MRO project

PENSACOLA, Fla. - A city selection committee has ranked four firms that could oversee building the $210 million expansion of the ST Engineering maintenance, repair and overhaul campus at Pensacola International Airport. The No. 1 company was Birmingham, Ala.-based Brasfield and Gorrie partnering with local Greenhut Construction Co. Greenhut was the construction manager on the first $46 million ST Engineering hangar that opened in 2018. The other companies were the Haskell Co. partnering with Hewes and Co., Caddell Construction Co. partnering with Whitesell-Green Inc. and Hensel Phelps Construction Co. The mayor will review the committee rankings and authorize the city to negotiate a contract. Once negotiated, it will go to the City Council for approval. The company selected will build the next aircraft maintenance hangar, Hangar 2, but the same company could be in charge of the entire project if everything goes well on during construction of Hangar 2. The project will allow ST Engineering to expand it aircraft maintenance operations at the airport and create more than 1,300 jobs. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 08/22/19) Previous
