We started working with Vancouver Airport Authority (YVR) in 1995, and that initial project developed into a long-term relationship spanning over 200 projects.
The $146-million A-B Connector project was our largest YVR project to date. This project involved demolishing one of the oldest remaining parts of the original 1968-era domestic terminal and building a new four-level expanded facility.
We relocated and upgraded four gates, added four new gates, and constructed an expanded concourse and a new baghall area. The new expansion also provides added retail outlets, restaurants, a food court, a level four lounge/office space, and a smooth transition space for arriving and departing domestic passengers with direct connections to and from the International Terminal. The project will also add six new apron drive bridges that will be serviced by a new underground fueling line. The apron areas have been renovated to facilitate the installation of the new fuel line and to suit the new gate locations.
“Ledcor has been a valued partner in the development of YVR over the years,” said Don Ehrenholz, YVR’s Vice President of Engineering. “The collaboration of our respective expertise combined with Ledcor’s working knowledge of our business has resulted in a high-quality terminal building that has won YVR international recognition from our customers and industry partners alike.”
As one of YVR’s preferred construction companies, we look forward to our continued success working with YVR as it implements its long-term expansion plan. As with any long-term client, this partnership is built on trust. We are committed to the best interests of the airport and strive to deliver projects ahead of schedule and on budget. We work together toward a common goal: building a worldclass facility that will instill pride in everyone.
