BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY
CEEA will support Denver in becoming THE place that businesses across the United States come to find aviation talent.
CEEA is an integral piece to implementing DEN’s Vision 100 strategic plan, which will prepare the airport for 100 million annual passengers in the next eight to 10 years. The center will be constructed on Level 4 of the Hotel and Transit Center as part of the Great Hall Completion.
As we continue to implement CEEA programs, we aim to be trailblazers in the aviation industry by embedding equity in all we do and how we connect with our community. We will continue to challenge our assumptions and ask for feedback from our stakeholders as we build CEEA together.
The Training Academy gives small businesses a systematic approach to entering DEN as a subcontractor in the areas of Construction, Professional Services, Goods and Services and Concessions.
Business Development Training Academy
The Career Pathways program will offer graduated points of entry with the goal of creating an aviation talent pipeline.
This construction is part of the Great Hall Completion. Our design work has continued throughout 2023 and is expected to be finalized with construction beginning in late 2023. Our minority-owned design firm Studio Completiva, awarded through Stantec, and Sky Blue Builders, awarded through Hensel Phelps are working closely to deliver a world-class facility for our global community to enjoy.
The CEEA space is part of the $1.3 billion Great Hall Completion Phase.
Additional aspects of the Completion Phase will build a second Level 6 security checkpoint on the northeast side of the terminal, construct the remaining ticket lobbies on the south end of the terminal and create new meeter/greeter spaces on the south end of Level 5 and near international arrivals. Once the entire Great Hall Project is complete, there will be two security checkpoints on Level 6 as well as new ticketing lobbies for all airlines, providing enhanced security, increased capacity, improved operational efficiencies and an elevated passenger experience.
