Denver International Airport South Terminal Redevelopment

Airport terminal utility and soils work


Iron Woman performed work at two different DIA South Terminal Redevelopment (STRP) projects. In addition to relocating and installing over $3.3 million of utilities, Iron Woman worked directly with Kiewit to move more than 1,000,000 cubic yards of material. This huge soil export was part of the enabling works that paved the way for vertical develop­ment on-site and was known as the Big Dig.
