CMAR – Terminal 4 North Apron Reconstruction, GMP’s 1-6

Date Completed

November 2021


This nearly seven-year CMAR project was completed with zero lost time incidents, zero citations for FOD, and on-time, under budget delivery on all 6 GMP’s. The project involved the removal and replacement of 200,000 SY (41.3 acres) of concrete pavement affected by Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) in the operationally dense T4 North Apron Area at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PSHIA). Work occurred in an active airport operational movement area directly adjacent to ongoing gate operations, with a majority of the work occurring at night. The project consisted of 49 construction phases broken into limited construction areas to mitigate disruptions to airport traffic and gate operations. Diligent planning, communication, and scheduling between Banicki, the City of Phoenix Aviation Department, the Design Team, and PSHIA Operational Entities was paramount for the successful execution of this project.


During preconstruction, Banicki worked closely with American Airlines to incorporate their concurrent re-gating project into our project schedule, ensuring our operations had no impact on American Airlines. In achieving a successful GMP, Banicki took a dynamic, flexible, and proactive approach to the phasing and sequencing of the project; identifying and mitigating key operational, delivery, and scheduling risks in order to minimize the impact of planned construction operations. Other services Banicki provided during preconstruction were:

  • GMP’s developed at 30% / 60% / 90% / final design
  • Detailed bid packages for work disciplines in each GMP
  • Detailed quantity take-offs
  • Design assist & development
  • Risk mitigation
  • Site investigation
  • Construction phasing & sequencing
  • Value engineering
  • CPM scheduling
  • DBE & SBE outreach


  • 200,000 SY (41.3 acres) PCCP removal & replacement
  • Over 200,000 SY subgrade preparation, aggregate base course, and fine grading
