The Adams County Board of Commissioners (BOCC) has released a request for information (RFI) that looks for P3 partners to help deliver a commercial space hub.

In 2018, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved a licence for the airport to become an air and space port, dubbed Colorado Air and Space Port (CASP), with the authority now looking for the site to “serve as America’s hub for commercial space transportation, research, and development”.

The CASP has over 1,600 acres of developable land with access to the taxiways and runways, but is in need of enabling infrastructure such as utilities to pave the way for future development.

Alongside identifying the utility needs, the private partners will fund and install the developments as part of a P3.

Earlier this year, Adams County released an RFI on a hangar P3 project as part of the space port project.

Responses are due November 30, 2023. The tender can be found by clicking here.
