SkyTrain-1Phoenix Sky Train, Stage 1A

Developer: City of Phoenix
Contractor: McCarthy Kiewit Joint Venture
Architect: Gannett Fleming, Inc.
Size: 60KSF
Location: Phoenix
Completed: July 2014

Working “airside” on a one-mile stretch of a project at the 10th busiest airport in the country requires teamwork and meticulous planning. The McCarthy Kiewist Joint Venture managed to do all of this while completing a project ahead of time and under budget. The Phoenix Sky Train connects Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport’s (PSHIA) Terminal 4 with terminals 2 and 3. PSHIA services more than 40 million passengers a year, and the project’s objective was to relieve unnecessary congestion on Sky Harbor Boulevard. The LEED certified project sourced 20 percent of its materials from recycled materials and 20 percent of used products made within 500 miles of the project location. More than 50 percent of construction waste was salvaged or recycled, and 107 caissons, ranging from four to nine feet in diameter, support the station, elevated guideway and taxiway bridge extensions of the Phoenix Sky Train Stage 1A development.
