MBS Airport

MBS Airport (named for the surrounding areas of city of Midland, Bay County and city of Saginaw) is a lifeline for mid-Michigan, providing easy access to businesses and regional stakeholders. The benefit of MBS to Midland, Bay, and Saginaw counties is estimated at over $100 million USD annually, making it easy to see why a modern, user-friendly facility is of the utmost importance.

In the fall of 2008, the MBS Airport Commission approved designs for a new green field terminal site that would replace their current main terminal which was built in 1965. Selected as the general contractor, CCC was responsible for overseeing the $48 million project which included the building of the new 75,000-square-foot terminal, new access roads, and a new parking facility.

Because of the use of limited grant money to fund the terminal, remaining on budget was vital to the success of this project. The aggressive timelines were made more complicated because of the necessity to work with multiple agencies, including the regional Airport Authority, Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). In addition to managing the structural steel erection, installation of the building systems and construction of the access roads, CCC also self-performed the site concrete placement.

The new terminal is a sustainable building designed to incorporate elements of LEED 1 design throughout, including the use of locally produced materials. Due to the advanced construction methods and materials used, the MBS Airport Authority is confident that the new facility will meet the travel needs of the mid-Michigan region for decades to come.
