Clark Construction Group recently joined representatives from United Airlines, Houston Airport System, and Manhattan Construction at IAH to unveil plans for the the Terminal B Transformation Program.
Clark is overseeing construction on the Central Processor portion of the project, which includes a new baggage claim hall, baggage handling system ticketing hall, security checkpoint, and additional airline & airport support spaces, concessions, and expanded curbside to ease the terminal’s through-traffic. The project also includes major updates to the concourse which will be completed by Manhattan Construction.
“Manhattan Construction Company is extremely proud of the successful and award-winning projects that we have constructed alongside United at IAH over the past 25 years,” said Jason Fuller, Vice President of Manhattan Construction Company. “We look forward to continuing this legacy on the Terminal B Transformation Program. This is a milestone project that will provide great economic opportunities for local Houston businesses, as together we build an expanded and innovative concourse complex that will benefit our entire community. Manhattan’s core team for this project are Houstonians who have spent the bulk of their careers constructing aviation projects here at IAH, and we truly appreciate the opportunity to partner with United Airlines, the Houston Airport System, and all of our local trade contractors to deliver this landmark program.”
The project will enable United Airlines to increase terminal capacity and improve the airport experience for travelers while driving significant economic growth for Houston. It is slated to create over 3,000 new jobs.
“Clark is excited to move forward on this landmark project for United Airlines and IAH,” said Cara Lanigan, CEO of Clark Construction’s Central Group. “A project like this benefits working families and the broader community in countless ways. We're proud to work with our local Houston trades to create a facility that visitors and Houstonians alike will benefit, from arrival to departure, for decades to come.”
The redevelopment of the several-decade-old terminal is expected to be completed in 2026.
