Phoenix Sky Train, Stage 1A
Developer: City of Phoenix
Contractor: McCarthy Kiewit Joint Venture
Architect: Gannett Fleming, Inc.
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.
W.J. Maloney Plumbing, Heating & Cooling has been awarded a contract for plumbing construction in the next component of the Phoenix Sky Train at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
W.J. Maloney was awarded the contract from the McCarthy Kiewit Joint Venture to install the drainage system for the new elevated guide way connecting Terminal 4 to Terminal 3.
Previously W.J. Maloney had completed the roof drain piping, water piping, waste and vent, grease waste and condensate piping for the 44th Street Station, the Light Rail Terminal, the East Economy Lot and the large bridges spanning over various roads and airplane taxiways and runways.
“Not all plumbing contractors have the resources, track-record and certifications to complete work on such large-scale public sector projects,” said Kathryn “Kitty” Maloney-Langmade, president of W.J. Maloney. “We have demonstrated our ability to meet the high standards required on projects of this scale.”
