Providenciales International Airport terminal building going up

Passengers and airport visitors may see the continued movement within the protected fenced area directly in front of the existing terminal at the Providenciales International Airport. Construction crews are in the process of building “up” as structural elements for the new terminal building are being put in place.

Large concrete bases have been poured to hold the foundation works for the building expansion that will almost double the size of the terminal building. Over forty, three-foot bases will be set in place to support the terminal building and the majority has already been positioned. An industrial size pump truck is used to carry out the pours, as it has the ability to mix the cement on site to the correct PSI and better manage the flow of cement. These bases will set the foundation for the tons of steel that are to come and form the frame of the terminal building.

Installation of the steel is currently taking place and work will be carried out at full force during the slow months of September and October.

The overflow West Parking Lot is currently having the curbing and bumper strips installed. The bumper strips will mark out each parking spot and serve as a barrier to prevent one vehicle driving forward to the next vehicle.

The project is on schedule and moving toward a winter 2014 opening date.

Folks, if you are talking about confusion, go to Providenciales International Airport!

Absolutely no organization

No place to drop off, no that is not correct, one drop-off, and the whole flow of traffic stops

And the "guard, or century", has a resting place for him to use his cellphone without distraction. He sits there and watches the mass confusion.

At flight time, why not have a properly-managed free-flowing curb drop-off point/place to avoid the conjestion?

The general public deserves much metter

Your visitors need a better welcome and bade well impression of the TCI. Right now, "progress is not seen as an improvement".
