In an effort to become an international city, Denver has consistently invested in the airport. In 2017, Denver International Airport (DEN) was the sixth busiest airport in the United States and the eighteenth busiest in the world. As a primary economic engine, it is a crucial part of the city’s growth.
From its beginnings as Stapleton International Airport in the early 1900's, the City of Denver sought to expand in a significant way, moving locations in 1995 to DEN’s current home. This move placed Denver on the international stage, making way for more runways, more gates, and increased travel, facilitating the expansion of the city’s economy and attracting corporate investment. The airport has undergone significant changes over the years, constantly striving to become best-in-class in passenger experience.
As a firm, Sewald Hanfling shares the same opinion as the City - in order to grow and become a global city, it is vital to invest in DEN. In 2016, Sewald Hanfling was retained by Ferrovial who was awarded a 1.8 billion dollar contract over 34-years to reconstruct and operate the Great Hall. This project will establish DEN as one of the safest, most efficient and passenger-friendly airports in the world.
