The design-build contract, valued at approximately $186 million, includes the design and supply of all of the system-wide electrical and mechanical (E&M) equipment, and the construction and equipping of the Operations and Maintenance and Storage Facility (OMSF).


Under a separate operate-maintain contract, valued at approximately $69 million, Bombardier will provide operation and maintenance services for 10 years. Completion of stage one of the 2.2-mile PHX SkyTrain is scheduled for 2012.

Bombardier Transportation’s facility, located in Pittsburgh, will be responsible for the design and supply of the 18 driverless Innovia vehicles, Bombardier Cityflo 650 automatic train control, power supply and distribution and communications systems; and the OMSF; as well as project management, systems engineering and integration, and test and commissioning.

Weitz Construction, as the prime subcontractor to Bombardier, and general contractor of the project, will be responsible for all of the E&M installation, including the construction of the OMSF. Weitz will employ a team of local Phoenix area contractors led by Suntec Concrete and Wilson Electric Services Corp., which are both experienced in airport construction.
