Airport

BBG brings to the table over a decade of legal expertise in airport construction. The demands of a 24/7 airport are not simply limited to landing airplanes or moving passengers. In today’s competitive aviation market, airports are striving to provide an exceptional travelling experience, and BBG understands how construction projects fit into this environment. Additionally, where local governments own and/or control the airport (such as Denver International Airport), experience with government contracting is a necessity for performing work at these locations. BBG is experienced in negotiating government contracts that ensure successful project completion along with compliance in the variety of government programs. By including BBG on your project team, we can provide legal guidance on contract drafting and negotiation, contract administration, and project support, including addressing changes and claims, throughout the life cycle of the airport construction process. From bid submission to warranty service, BBG is your construction advocate on all aspects of construction in the airport sector.
