United Airlines recently broke ground on the new Terminal C North concourse at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).

The ground breaking event took place on May 11, 2015, at the Houston Intercontinental Airport (IAH) in Texas with dignitaries including Mayor Annise Parker, United leadership including Jim Compton, vice chairman and chief revenue officer, representatives of the Houston Airport System and aldermen. The Mayor and Mr. Compton spoke to more than 100 people in attendance before breaking ground on the site.

"Faithful+Gould is honored to work on such a critical project for United’s operations."

Faithful+Gould is providing program management services for this new 265,000-square-foot facility. Terminal C North is critical to the extensive connecting air traffic at IAH, particularly for those customers connecting between United flights and flights operated by United’s international airline partners. When construction on the new concourse is completed, the Houston Airport System will demolish the existing Terminal C North facility to enable the reconstruction of the Mickey Leland International Terminal D.

We have been supporting United for more than 18 years on ongoing facility expansion projects at IAH,” said Ashley Hough, Faithful+Gould program director, who has worked at IAH within the United office for more than 12 years. “Our relationship with United continues to grow stronger as we prove ourselves as a true partner to the organization bringing added value in program and construction management.”

The Terminal C North project is expected to be complete in early 2017.
