Tutor Perini's (TPC) Unit Wins Bridge Replacement Work in MN

Tutor Perini Corporation’s TPC subsidiary — Lunda Construction Company — has won a $53.6 million Kellogg/3rd Street Bridge Replacement Project contract from the City of St. Paul, MN.

Lunda Construction will construct a new bridge with 13 spans, totaling more than 2,100 feet in length. The bridge will have four lanes of traffic (two in each direction) and a barrier-separated 12-feet-wide trail on both sides of the roadway.

Work on the project is expected to begin in the third quarter and is anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2027. The contract value will be added to TPC’s second-quarter backlog.

Consistent Contract Wins Bode Well

Tutor Perini’s efficient project execution and diversified delivery methods and services have aided it in securing new contracts and awards consistently. This is the primary growth driver of the company that adds to its backlog level, thereby determining the long-term growth prospects in this everchanging economy.

On May 29, TPC’s joint venture with its subsidiary, Black Construction Corporation, won a $74.4 million Child Development Center contract at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. The contract was awarded by the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command, Pacific District.

Again, on May 22, TPC's subsidiary, Tutor Perini Building Corp., received a $228.6 million contract from the Broward County Board of County Commissioners for the Terminal Connectors Project at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

As of Mar 31, 2024, consolidated new awards of TPC were $872.8 million, up 13.8% from $766.7 million reported a year ago. The uptrend was primarily driven by the increased new award activity in the Building and Civil segments. A few significant new awards and contract adjustments in the first quarter include a $243 million healthcare facility project in California, a $73 million airport hangar project in Florida, $66 million of additional funding for several other healthcare projects in California, $55 million for three U.S. Navy projects in Diego Garcia; and an additional $52 million funding for three mass-transit projects in California.

Tutor Perini remains optimistic about its bidding pipeline as it witnesses several active opportunities on large projects, thanks to substantial government funding and limited competition for many of the larger projects.
