Project Titan, the $210 million Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) facility expansion at Pensacola International Airport, has hit a tremendous milestone in the construction phase.

Construction crews from Brasfield & Gorrie recently held a “topping out” lunch reception to honor the hundreds of workers whose tireless efforts have contributed to the completion of the exterior of the facility. A “topping out” ceremony is a celebration of the last beam, or its equivalent, being placed atop a structure during its construction.      
“The journey to this construction milestone has required complex efforts and coordination, including the critical lifts to raise the 640-foot-long, 865,000-pound box beam and the 600-foot-long, 400,000-pound step beam,” Vice President and Division Manager Michael Tortorici said. “Because of our history with aviation and aerospace, Brasfield & Gorrie is experienced in coordinating the intricate details required for this project. But it wouldn’t be possible without our field forces and the support of the Pensacola International Airport, Greenhut Construction and our trade contractors. We’re grateful for their collaboration.”
