DHL Express Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport Building 5

Hebron, KY

The project site was directly adjacent to an operating tarmac. Messer coordinated with stakeholders to ensure CVG’s daily operations were not impacted during construction. This included the international choir competition, multiple holidays and visits from a sitting president. Messer included an additional $1.2 million in scope in the already compressed schedule. This ensured third party material handling equipment subcontractors were able to have more than $30 million worth of sorting equipment operational prior to DHL’s heavy shipping season.
