The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority board unanimously approved Austin Commercial as the general contractor to build the new Central Utility Plant on Airside 4 at the Orlando International Airport. The $15.7 million project is in preparation for the airport’s future expansion.
The new 7,500-square-foot Central Plant Building will house the chillers, pumps, electrical switch gear, generator and office. A separate enclosure will be built for the cooling towers. The scope of work also includes associated site work, retaining walls, underground utilities, road realignment, landscaping and irrigation.
Construction of the Central Utility Plant is expected to be completed in early 2016.
