City transportation officials enter an agreement with a management company that will make sure phase two of the airport renovation project stays under budget.
Trinity-Hughes and Sundt will perform construction manager-at-risk services for phase two of the Wichita Falls Municipal Airport project.

Project Superintendent Bob Aniol says, "We will come on board and do pre-construction services, and in those services, we're going to come up with the most cost-effective systems that will give the greatest life cycle to the airport, so the facility that they build today will last for the next 50 or 60 years."

They'll work with the design team to make a set of drawings for the airport, and will troubleshoot any problems that may come up.  They'll also estimate construction costs, and guarantee the total spent on the project will be less than that amount.
The companies will begin their work next week, and construction at the airport should begin this summer.

Phase one of the airport terminal project was fully-funded by the FAA, and Transportation Director John Burrus says he plans to apply for additional grant money for phase two of the project.
