1 Building A New Denver Airport Adam Danczyk, Saif Jabari, and Matthew Forsyth
2 History Benjamin F. Stapleton, Mayor of Denver in 1920s, desired a new airport. Site was selected six miles east of downtown because of low development in area and land price values. Stapleton had opposition from City Council. Denver Post called idea Stapleton s s Folly and Simpleton s s Sand Dunes.
3 History Mayor Stapleton beat the opposition. On March 25, 1928, the City Council approved airport construction. Cost of the airport was $430,000 and it opened in October 1929.
4 History Airport was an immediate financial success. Amelia Earhart stopped at airport during a cross-country escapade. The first control tower in Denver began operations in Mayor Stapleton was given full recognition by renaming in Stapleton Field.
5 History The Jet Age became a reality in the 1950s and Stapleton Airport became more successful. By 1985, Stapleton had grown to 4,700 acres.
6 Trouble On The Horizon Stapleton Airport began having trouble in the 1980s. Inadequate runway separation caused difficult in landing coordination during low visibility weather, causing delays. Local opposition erupted over noise complaints. Threats of legal action by Adams County prevented further expansion into the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Lands.
7 Show Me The Money! In September 1989, Denver Mayor Federico Peña got approval for construction of a new airport. Peña was harshly criticized by opponents of spending too much money on large-scale projects. Besides the airport, Mayor Peña s s leadership hosted a Grand Prix, built a new convention center, and authorized the construction of a new baseball stadium. Denver residents suffered the bills of these endeavors. Airport initially was to be built by 1993, but poor planning and frequent design changes pushed it back to Federico Peña
8 If At First You Don t t Succeed In April of 1994, the city invited reporters to observe the first test of the new automated baggage system. Reporters got to witness luggage fly off the tracks and personal items vanish in the tunnels.
9 Better Late Than Never? The luggage system fiasco prompted further delays in opening. Engineers worked on the system and opened finally in February The project was now 16 months behind schedule and 2 billion dollars over budget. Stapleton Airport, under the agreement made with Adams County, was forced to close for good.

11 Have the Benefits Surpassed The Costs? DIA is 5th busiest U.S. Airport, 10th Worldwide. 23 Passenger Airlines operate at DIA Over 42 million passengers in 2004 (13% increase over 2003.) J.D. Power & Associates named DIA #1 airport in the U.S. in customer satisfaction, #2 in the world. In 2004, the FAA ranked DIA first in major airports for on-time arrivals. Future Aircraft Potential with 16,000 foot runway (16R/34L). The Automated Baggage System is deemed a failed experiment and has been completely abandoned this year (2005).
12 Cost Overruns November 1988: Conceptual estimate of $1.34 billion 1989: Bid solicitation began without input from the airlines February 1994: Costs increased to $2.92 billion March 1995: Construction costs go over $3.00 billion, total costs over $4.80 billion

18 The Automated Baggage Handling Problems with the system: System Baggage jams undetected Overloading of DCVs Conveyors and DCVs not well synchronized DCVs locked together when they collided Poor empty DCV management
19 GAO Observations GAO recommendations to avoid future cost overruns with similar projects: The airlines should be involved during design Alternative or backup systems should be incorporated in design when dealing with new technology A more vigorous quality control and quality assurance program

41 Topics for Discussion Should Stapleton have been expanded vs. relocated? Should Denver have kept Stapleton open as a competitive service? Considering the fact that all mega project are associated with cost overruns and initial investments should they be avoided altogether? When a project such as the automated baggage claim has gone bad, who should be held responsible and who should pay the bill? Would two smaller projects offer lower cost and higher service for consumers? Is investing in a megaproject the same as endorsing a monopoly? Does Denver International Airport have legitimate competing airports in the aviation market?
