Mortenson Completes $105 Million in New
Airport Ground Facilities
Mor tenson used innovative
construction technologies and
lean practices to build three
major new ground facilities
totaling 180,000 square feet for
United Airlines at Chicago's
O'Hare International Airport
in less than a year. Mortenson
fast-tracked the project because
United needed to vacate its
previous ground facilities to make way for runway
construction at O'Hare.
The runway work complements the planned $8.5 billion
investment to upgrade terminals and other amenities and
add the first new gates at the airport in nearly 25 years.
Mortenson broke ground on the $105 million United
project, which also included 1.2 million square feet of
airside paving, in December, 2017. The airline received
its occupancy certifications for the new ground equipment
maintenance and facilities maintenance and stores in
November. United uses the buildings for equipment
maintenance and storage and to house its facility
maintenance personnel, bussing operation, aircraft move
team, and aircraft provisioning/cleaning operations.

ACI Jet Celebrates Two Years at
John Wayne Airport
ACI Jet announced the two-year anniversary of its John
Wayne Airport/ Orange County (SNA) FBO location.
As ACI Jet had inherited an FBO facility that showed
signs of deferred maintenance, a rejuvenation of the FBO
terminal was in order. ACI Jet immediately invested some
$500,000 to renovate the FBO, making the facility more
spacious, modern and welcoming for customers. Just as
important, changes such as the addition of a central fuel
dispatch function and a new valet service were added
to improve how the FBO functioned operationally, all
with an eye to improve the service experience. As the
year-over year-growth in fuel volume has demonstrated
since ACI Jet arrived in Orange County, business and
general aviation has returned to a place of prominence
at John Wayne Airport.
