Port of Seattle – North SeaTac Airport Renovations (NSTAR) Program Management and Controls Services


The project, North SeaTac Airport Renovations (NorthSTAR) program includes renovations to the North Satellite (NSAT), Concourse C, Concourse D and the Main Terminal.

The program entails upgrades and modifications to existing facilities at SeaTac International Airport to accommodate Alaska Air Group (AAG) goals to relocate to the NSAT, to improve passenger service, to replace obsolete infrastructure systems and to meet current seismic standards.

The project has two sponsors: Port of Seattle and AAG. The Port has the overall lead and AAG is an integral part of the project team. AAG has a vision for improving the curb-to-gate experience of its passengers and improving employee spaces.
