Capacity, comfort, convenience, security and safety are essential to McCarran's continued success, as well as that of Las Vegas. Bechtel has helped Clark County enhance those attributes for more than 30 years. In partnership with Clark County Department of Aviation, Bechtel orchestrated all six phases of McCarran International Airport's expansion and modernization, starting in 1981. These expansions have kept this airport at pace with the phenomenal growth of Las Vegas and its tourist industry.
The most recent project was the new state-of-the-art Terminal 3—completed in 2012 on schedule and within budget. The $2.4 billion facility was the largest expansion effort undertaken at McCarran.
Projects we have managed include terminals, concourses, dozens of gates, runways, parking facilities for thousands of vehicles, freeways, roads, bridges, a tunnel, utility systems, an automated people-mover system, a consolidated-car-rental facility, a bus maintenance depot, a terminal security annex, an integrated in-line baggage-screening program, and more.
