Black Roofing helps build Denver International Airport’s south terminal

Since opening Feb. 28, 1995, Denver International Airport (DIA) has become the U.S.' sixth busiest airport. More than 58.3 million passengers traveled through the airport during 2016, making it one of the most active hubs in the world's aviation market.

Located on 33,531 acres, DIA has the most land area of all U.S. airports and offers nonstop service to 187 destinations throughout North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia. Owned and operated by the City and County of Denver, DIA is Colorado's primary economic engine, generating more than $26 billion annually.

In October 2011, the South Terminal Redevelopment Program was launched to enhance the airport's competitive standing as a leading global airport and increase overall passenger and aircraft-handling capacity. The $544 million new construction project encompassed building a new Westin hotel with a conference center and a Public Transit Center, including a commuter rail train connecting the hotel to the Jeppesen terminal.

Black Roofing Inc., Boulder, Colo., was selected to install all waterproofing membrane assemblies and coatings for the massive project.
