For three decades, Prince Contracting has been a civil construction leader in Florida specializing in highway, heavy construction and site development, self-performing a majority of its work. It is because of its expertise that the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) chose it to build the state’s first diverging diamond interchange, which is also the largest in the country.

The high-profile I-75 at University Parkway in Manatee and Sarasota counties is a $74.5 million, 745-day project that started in August 2015. The diverging diamond interchange opened in May and Prince is about 90 percent completed with the project.

One of the largest general contractors and construction managers in the United States, Hensel Phelps Construction is about midway through a $350 million expansion project at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas. 

The mammoth project, that broke ground in 2015, is targeting completion in 2019. Hensel Phelps is handling the construction portion of the project that amounts to roughly $276 million. The project’s highlights include new contact gates, an expanded airfield for jet parking, apron pavement expansions and more concession space for shops and restaurants.

“I think it’s going to be a great project for the city of Austin,” Project Manager Joe Sanders says. “It’s a great design that builds on the city’s character.” The expansion is expected to boost Austin-Bergstrom’s capacity by 27 to 30 percent.
