ORLANDO, FL. – “The Prow,” the distinct architectural feature for the under-construction South Terminal, was raised at Orlando International Airport earlier today.

Teams from Hensel Phelps and Turner-Kiewit Joint Venture, the Construction Managers at Risk for the project, met with executives from the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority to celebrate the milestone. With the crowning of “The Prow,” South Terminal construction is now 60 percent complete. Phil Brown, GOAA’s Chief Executive Officer, and others signed the 66,000-pound beam before it was raised.

The all-new South Terminal is currently scheduled to open in February 2022. This morning’s construction site was active with approximately 1,600 workers who continue to build out the largest expansion project in airport history. Once complete, the building will bring an additional 2 million square feet of space to the
Orlando International Airport footprint.
