The timeline on a project to build an international arrivals corridor in order to meet federal security guidelines at the A.B. Won Pat International Airport was officially extended during a Guam International Airport Authority Board of Directors meeting held Thursday.
A two-month "no-cost" contract extension was approved by the board.
"We are in the process of extending the contract from Oct. 3 to Dec. 2," Frank Santos, business and financial consultant with GIAA, told the board.
A proposed change order fee of $688,211 for the contract with Black Construction Corp. for the refill replacement and replenishment of the argon gas fire suppression system and an extension of the builders coalition insurance were also approved by the board.
The $137 million-plus project began in 2017 and is funded by a 2013 debt through the bond market and Federal Aviation Administration grants.
