CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- An Atlanta construction company is appealing a decision to give a Dallas company the contract to renovate the terminal at the Charleston International Airport. 

Holder Construction Co. of Atlanta is appealing the decision to award the $150 million contract to Austin Commercial LP of Dallas and Hitt Contracting, a Charleston area company.

Nick Nicholson represents Holder and says the company wants a Circuit Court to review the decision. The appeal comes after the Aviation Authority denied a challenge Friday.

Nicholson says the only people who have reviewed the contact so far work for the airport authority or are members of the authority.

The Holder team says a former airport board member's ties to the Austin-Hitt team tainted the contract award process.
