One of the country's largest cities is turning to public transportation to cut down on the traffic that comes with increased population.

The Construction Manager at Risk project shifts rental car facilities to a centralized location on the north side of the airport. The project is a 2 million-square-foot structure that houses companies representing 16 brands, a customer service building, quick-turn-around car prep facility and ready/return area for more than 5,400 vehicles.

Few industries were hit harder than construction during the Great Recession. In those challenging years, 8.2 million jobs were eliminated, including 2.3 million in construction. Arizona alone lost 700,000 positions. A large percentage of those who lost jobs were experienced craft workers. As the market has improved, some of those men and women are returning to jobsites. Others have retired or moved on to different careers, creating a void to be filled by younger workers. Companies seeking to employ the best in the industry will have to play a larger role in growing their own talent. This is what prompted Sundt to establish the Center for Craft Excellence.

Mike Hoover brings more than 30 years of construction industry to his new role as Sundt’s President, which officially took effect on Oct. 1. (Dave Crawford will remain CEO while Mike settles into his new leadership role.) Hoover is one of those rare leaders who worked his way up from laborer to executive, holding just about every job in between. He’s a mechanical engineer, a skilled carpenter and no stranger to the frequent relocations and long, physically demanding days that are common in our industry. Those are just a few of the things we learned about Hoover in a recent conversation about his background, philosophy, and goals for the future.

To college football fans, the best kind of stadium renovator is the one they never see. But not many contractors can execute complex, large-scale stadium construction projects to a high degree of quality – and avoid impacting the fan experience. Contractors that can are the clear fan favorites - even if they've never laid eyes on them. Universities know who they are though, which is why Sundt and joint venture partner Hunt Construction Group were selected for the $256 million transformation of Arizona State University’s Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.

Santa is delivering an early gift this year to the Wichita Falls Regional Airport in Wichita Falls, Texas: its new terminal building is scheduled to open on December 17, just in time for the busy holiday travel season. True, a holiday completion was planned from the start, but the holiday in question was closer to Easter 2015 than Christmas 2014.

On a recent Saturday morning in San Antonio, Sundt installed the longest precast, pre-stressed concrete bridge girders in the history of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). But perhaps what’s more impressive is the fact that Interstate 10 (I-10) was closed for just five hours while the girders were set in place. The operation was part of Sundt’s $6.1 million transportation construction project on I-10 at Ralph Fair Road. It involves the construction of a new overpass to expand the existing FM 3351 bridge to accommodate growing traffic volumes.
