Jacksonville International Airport
Location: Jacksonville, FL
Client: Jacksonville Airport Authority
Size: Two new airport concourses totaling 1,600 feet in length
Guarantee Electrical and joint venture partner White Electrical of Atlanta, Ga., orchestrated the award-winning completion of two new airport concourses for the Jacksonville International Airport in Florida. Even though Jacksonville hosted only one qualified minority subcontractor, it seamlessly fulfilled a 15% minority participation requirement to finish the complex project on budget and ahead of schedule.
Together, Guarantee and White Electrical successfully installed tens of thousands of feet of conduit in the two new concourses, which spanned more than 1,600 feet in length. Completing the installation were overhead lights, column sconces and uplights, a speaker system, Multi-User Flight Information DisplaySystem (MUFIDS) boards, flat screen televisions and fire alarm speaker strobes.
More than 55,000 man-hours were logged with zero safety incidents. The Guarantee-White team won the 2008 Joint Venture Award sponsored by the Federated Electrical Contractors, an international trade group of 33 major electrical contractors.
