Ground Broken for Cutting-Edge Logistics Center at Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport

Trammell Crow launches four-building project to provide first ever cargo facility to support Airbus A380 aircraft


Representatives from Trammell Crow Company and DFW Airport break ground for the AirFreight and Logistics Centre construction project. Bob Moore Construction is the General Contractor for this construction project, which features the United States' first cargo facilities to support the new Airbus A380 aircraft.

ARLINGTON, TEXAS - April 5, 2005 - Bob Moore Construction, on behalf of Trammell Crow Company, has broken ground for a multi-building project on a 35-acre tract at the Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport. This four-building project features the United States' first cargo facilities designed to support the Airbus A380 aircraft.

The Groundbreaking Ceremony took place on March 17, 2005 at D/FW Airport. Steve Bradford, principal of Trammell Crow Company's Global Airport Development, hosted the event and Jeff Fegan, CEO of D/FW Airport, was the featured speaker.

The recent groundbreaking initiates the project's first phase, which includes the 114,000 SF CargoCentre III, the 114,300 SF AirFreight & LogisticsCentre I and the 114,200 SF AirFreight & LogisticsCentre II, to be completed in October. The project will ultimately include expansions of these buildings and one additional building - AirFreight & LogisticsCentres III - for a combined total of 743,000 SF of class A and rentable apron space.

A key feature of the cargo building's design is that it will support parking for four Boeing 747-400F planes or three of the new Airbus A380 aircraft. No other airport in the United States has a cargo facility that can park these wide-body planes by its logistics space.

Bob Moore Construction is the general contractor for this project. Carter & Burgess Inc. of Fort Worth is the lead architect and engineer, and Gromatzky Dupree & Associates of Dallas also worked on the design.

"I've been involved in this project for almost four years," said Kyle Whitesell, Senior Project Manager for Bob Moore Construction. "Coordinating with all the various parties and getting it to this point has been a very complex and challenging process. Several people, including Steve Bradford and Robert Brandt of Trammell Crow Company, worked closely to get this done. When you work this long to make something happen, it's very gratifying when everything finally falls into place. I'm excited to see the equipment rolling and the sitework started for the new buildings.

"I'm proud that Bob Moore Construction will play a major role in the creation of these very important additions to D/FW Airport as well," Whitesell added. "When this project is complete, the Metroplex will be able to boast capabilities that no other city in the country can match. It will be good for the airport and good for our local economy."
