The teams will next submit proposals detailing how they plan to make the $2.7 billion project happen, and how they would go about operating the people- mover once it has been built, according to Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that operates LAX Friday.
LAWA earlier this year put out a “statement of qualifications” soliciting interested teams, with the deadline closing on Thursday.
Each team is made up of lead contractors, equity members, designers, operators and maintenance service providers, subcontractors and advisers.
Unlike the typical contractor, the team awarded the job will also be operating and maintaining the people-mover, which airport officials say will encourage the contractor to deliver a quality project within budget.
The teams are:
Gateway Connectors, with lead contractors Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. and Skanska USA Civil West California District Inc.
LA Connext Partners, led by Ferrovial Agroman US Corp. and Bechtel Infrastructure Corp.
LAX Connecting Alliance, led by OHL USA Inc. (doing business as Group OHL USA Inc.), Acciona Infraestructuras, S.A. and Charles Pankow Builders Ltd.
LINXS, led by Fluor Enterprises Inc., Balfour Beatty Infrastructure Inc., Flatiron West Inc. and Dragados USA Inc.
And PWA, led by Walsh Construction Co. II, LLC, Granite Construction Co. and URS Energy & Construction Inc.
