KENNER, Louisiana — A committee evaluating proposals to build a new terminal at Louis Armstrong International Airport is recommending a joint venture composed largely of New Orleans-area businesses.

The New Orleans Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1kr5fG9 ) the recommendation makes Hunt Gibbs Boh Metro the favorite to land the $546.5 million project.

The approach the Hunt Gibbs group would take toward managing the project and the amount of fees, profit and overhead that it proposes to charge apparently won over members of the evaluation committee.

The partnership between Indianapolis-based Hunt Construction and three New Orleans companies — Gibbs Construction, Boh Bros. Construction and Metro Services Group — stressed its partners' local roots Thursday.

The Aviation Board must still confirm the evaluation committee's decision before it becomes official.
