Officials Working to Refine Terminal Modernization Program Vision for Pittsburgh International Airport, Seeking Involvement from Local Businesses

PITTSBURGH – In the year since announcing a $1.1 billion Terminal Modernization Program (TMP), officials at Pittsburgh International Airport continue to refine the vision for transforming the terminal while ensuring local involvement in the process.

An Industry Day event offering information on upcoming procurement opportunities is scheduled for Sept. 13, at the Hyatt Regency hotel at Pittsburgh International Airport. The event will provide an opportunity for local firms, small businesses and disadvantaged business enterprises (DBEs) to learn about opportunities related to the TMP and meet with other firms to explore potential partnering opportunities.

The schedule for Industry Day is as follows:

Date: Thursday, Sept. 13
Morning Session: 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Networking opportunity with potential Architecture & Engineering design teams  
Afternoon Session: 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Networking opportunity with potential Construction Management teams
Location: Hyatt Regency

In conjunction with Industry Day, two additional Requests for Proposals (RFPs) related to the TMP will be issued in early September. The Airport Authority will seek proposals from interested and qualified firms for Architectural and Engineering services for the design of garage and surface parking, rental car, and ground transportation facilities and another RFP will be issued for Construction Management services.  

“This is an exciting time for the modernization program,” said Paul Hoback, Senior Vice President, Engineering, Planning and Capital Development. “Our community is getting engaged and educated, and we are excited to continue work on this project, which is critical to the advancement of our airport and region.”

The Airport Authority has created expanded office space in Concourse D to accommodate the TMP Program Management team. A previously unoccupied hold room and storage space around Gate D85 has been converted to more than 5,000 square feet of office, conference and reception space.

A redesigned website ( has also been launched that better reflects and communicates the vision for modernization, as more refined designs and plans are taking shape. For the most up-to-date information, please visit the site at:

The Terminal Modernization Program, which was announced Sept. 12, 2017, is expected to generate $1.66 billion in economic activity, adding nearly 11,000 direct and indirect jobs to the region.
