DALLAS-Another leg of the $2.6-billion Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport expansion is due to kick off July 23 as DPR Construction Inc.’s crews in Dallas finish up site work for a $5.8-million four-building project.

The Redwood City, CA-based builder will be constructing a 6,246-sf fire station and remodeling and expanding three others, boosting the redos to 7,856 sf each. “The firemen are really excited about this getting started,” Scott Rolen, DPR superintendent, tells GlobeSt.com.

Rolen says all work will be done simultaneously while keeping the airport authority’s Department of Public Safety up and running as usual. The building project wraps up in April 2002. He estimates that DPR will have a crew of 75 to 100 on site for the firm’s first DFW airport project.

The building project will deliver kitchen, fitness and sleeping facilities to the three-shift DPS operation. The new building has been staked out and site work gets underway this morning in anticipation of the July 23 groundbreaking. HT&T Architects have designed the new DPS structure and the remodeling of the other three.
