Penn-co was awarded the design-build contract for the expansion and renovation of the Sioux Lookout Airport. Last renovated in 1995, the Sioux Lookout Airport now moves more than double the passengers and freight as was intended with the work done over 20 years ago. The increased demand combined with many inevitable constraints has more than warranted an upgrade and we were very excited to partner with the Municipality to create the necessary space to not only meet the current needs, but also the anticipated needs for future increases and potential expansions. One of the biggest challenges was working in and around a functioning airport while maintaining all safety and security requirements. Penn-co is no stranger to these conditions having done it many times in the past. Some issues to contend with are dust, debris and garbage control; keeping NAV Canada sight lines open; employee and passenger safety; and phasing. Using high capacity, ultra-durable materials ensure that this facility is functioning as needed for decades to come. It is an approximately 22,000 square meter addition to the existing 10,800 square meter building.
