General Contractor, Design-Builder
Weitz is proud to have been repeatedly selected by Bombardier as for all three stages of the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport’s automated train system called PHX Sky Train®. Weitz was awarded Stage 1 in 2009, Stage 1A in 2012, and Stage 2 in 2018.
Over the course of the three separate projects Weitz successfully installed over 5 miles of guideway. Weitz’s scope of work included all civil track work, mechanical switches, power distribution systems, uninterruptable power supplies, station system fit outs, and the signaling & communications systems.
Weitz also completed the maintenance and operations facility and yard required to operate and maintain the train fleet. The facility and yard more than doubled from Stage 1 to Stage 2, ending as a 60K SF and just over 1 mile of track. The facility and yard scope included admin space, a central control center, 3 light & 2 heavy maintenance bays, civil track work, mechanical switches, propulsion systems, and signaling and communications required to operate the entire PHX Sky Train® system.
