Weitz wins Phoenix Sky Train contract

The Weitz Company has been chosen by Bombardier Transportation as design-build contractor for an extension to the PHX Sky Train guideway and its maintenance facility in Arizona.

The project reunites the two companies that constructed the guideway system at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The scope of work associated with Stage 2 of the guideway covers a 2.5-mile extension to the airport’s rental car center, two new stations and an expansion of the maintenance facility. In addition, 24 cars will be added to the fleet along with upgrades to work completed during Stage 1.

Weitz first teamed with Bombardier during the construction of stages 1 and 1A of the PHX Sky Train, which included 3.2-miles of dual lane guideway as well as the maintenance facility.

Design of Stage 2 will continue through to February 2019 when construction is scheduled to start. Stage 2 will open in 2022.

The Stage 2 design-build team comprises Weitz; Deutsch Architecture Group; Kimley-Horn & Associates; Meade Engineering; and Kraemer Consulting Engineers. Wilson Electric; Commercial Air; Suntec Concrete; Perez; and Bell Steel are trade partners.
