Global pandemic hit every sector of the economy hard. Travel industry suffered a lot and it is not surprising to learn that most construction projects were put on hold. As the travel restrictions ease, the industry is poised for a rebound. The first project post lockdown that will create a completely new terminal has commenced in Pittsburgh. The terminal puts a lot of focus on waste reduction and sustainability, with over 75% of generated trash slated for recycling and repurposing.
- The Pittsburgh International Airport recently completed the construction of a new sustainable terminal.
- Economic experts believe the new terminal will generate almost 15,000 jobs and generate over $2-billion in revenue.
- The new terminal is the first new terminal construction in the USA since the coronavirus pandemic began.
