ICF advances groundbreaking airport redevelopment deal



ICF (NASDAQ: ICFI), a global consulting and digital services provider, has announced that it helped Ferrovial Airports close on the USD 1.8 billion financing phase of a major terminal redevelopment project at Denver International Airport (DIA). Once built, the “Great Hall Project” will house one of the largest dedicated commercial and retail spaces in a US airport, the company said.

For over two years, ICF has served as technical advisor to Ferrovial in its bid to expand, redesign and redevelop DIA´s Jeppeson Terminal. The project involves rebuilding the entire terminal, relocating the security screening area to improve passenger flow and creating an expansive hall that houses retail locations.

ICF has supported Ferrovial in each phase of the proposed deal. This includes developing the commercial inputs used to develop Ferrovial´s winning bid, creating the business plan used to negotiate the commercial agreement with the airport, and providing a technical report used to obtain financing.
