Did You Know?

In 2017, Benson Steel fabricated, and erected the structural  steel of the L.F. Wade International Airport in Bermuda. 

Completed on budget, and on time, the new 3,200 tons of steel terminal provides improved passenger processing, increased passenger capacity,  greater resilience to hurricanes and extreme weather conditions, energy efficiencies, advanced security, and covered passenger jetways.

Innovation is a core value of Benson Steel and this project is an example of how we continuously look for new ways to add value to the project. 

We used a 3D print modeling tool that enabled us to create models in real time, complete with wall thickening options to compare best practices and design solutions for the project. A great success. Benson is proud to be a part of the AECON build team on this exciting project.

The new terminal development was completed in September 2020 and the new passenger terminal building officially opened on December 9, 2020.
