BECHTEL TO UPGRADE, EXPAND MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND FIVE SMALLER DADE COUNTY AVIATION FACILITIES

 SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Bechtel has been awarded a contract to serve as program manager for a $2-billion, 10-year redevelopment and expansion program at Miami International Airport and five other general aviation facilities in surrounding Dade County, Fla., the company announced today.
 The Dade County Aviation Department awarded the contract to the Aviation Services business line of Bechtel Civil Co. The agreement calls for the bulk of the program's upgrade and expansion work to be carried out at Miami International, the world's second-busiest airport in terms of international passengers and cargo.
 Additional assignments are slated at five smaller, general aviation facilities in the Dade County system. They are the Opa-locka, Opa-locka West, Dade-Collier, Tamiami and Homestead airports. Involved will be the upgrading and expansion of runways, taxiways, terminals, infrastructure and support facilities, roads, parking garages and cargo and maintenance properties.
 Bechtel will serve as the managing partner of a joint venture known as Dade Aviation Consultants that also will include Day & Zimmermann Inc., a Philadelphia engineering and construction company, and Spillis Candela & Partners Inc. of Coral Gables, Dade County's largest and oldest architectural firm.
 "I can assure the people of Dade County that the team assembled to take on this challenge is one that knows how to get it right," said Bechtel Civil President Gary H. Bechtel.
 "These companies offer some of the world's leading expertise and resources in the planning, design and construction of airports and related transportation and infrastructure facilities. In all, those participating in this project represent more than $30 billion of work on international and domestic airport projects completed."
 Bechtel's other joint venture partners involved in the assignment include: The Bugdal Group, a woman-owned Miami firm that specializes in airport-related sign systems; Maurice Gray Associates Inc., a Dade County structural engineering firm; Forrest Construction Management Inc., a woman-owned company based in Miami; Sharpton, Brunson & Co., a Miami financial and accounting firm; and Thompson Consultants International Inc., which specializes in airport and terminal planning.
 Bechtel's contract calls for work to get under way Feb. 1. The firm's contact covers the initial 10-year portion of the program. There is a potential for follow-on work increments, with the entire program extending over 20 years.
 Bechtel, one of the world's largest engineering and construction companies, is a leader in aviation facilities development and program management and has been involved in the construction of more than 60 major domestic and international airport projects around the world.
 Currently, the company is serving as project management consultant for the new $13-billion Chek Lap Kok Airport and associated infrastructure projects in Hong Kong and recently completed a master plan and preliminary engineering studies for a $5-billion-plus new international airport and accompanying ground transportation system for Seoul, Korea.
 Bechtel also will manage the complex transfer for operations from Denver's existing Stapleton International Airport to that city's new $2.7-billion airport, set for October 1993, and is the program manager and prime consultant that is assisting in the implementation of a major $3-billion expansion at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
