John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport has issued a Request for Proposal for Professional Design Service of its new Air Cargo Logistics Facility.

The $12 million Air Cargo Logistics Facility, slated to open in 2015, is being funded through a joint partnership between the federal and Ontario governments and TradePort International Corporation, with support from Hamilton’s municipal government.

As depicted in renderings, the Air Cargo Logistics Facility will be built with direct airside access on a redeveloped parcel of land. Equipped with multiple trucking docks and specialized handling environments, the Air Cargo Logistics Facility will cater to niche product markets such as pharmaceutical and biomedical industries, automobile manufacturing and perishable goods.

The Airport is seeking an engineering and design firm to undertake the project, past experience with similar airport or logistics projects is an asset. Any interested parties are encouraged to review the Request for Proposal which can be found here.

A mandatory site meeting will be held for interested parties on February 26, 2014; instructions are included in the RFP document posted on the Airport’s website.
