This multi-phase project required expanding an existing 1970's structural frame and fit-out to develop a customer-friendly international air terminal which includes ticketing, baggage, customs, and immigration services. Additionally, the project required a multi-story connection to an adjoining garage.

The Civil engineering scope of work included approximately 62,500 SF of new pavement around the terminal, and new storm drainage. To present a unified design concept, the expanded version of the terminal blended steel construction with the existing structure.

Mechanical elements included HVAC, fire protection, storm drainage, sanitary drainage, and extension of site utilities. The central heating/cooling plant was expanded and services were updated to meet current code and ADA requirements. The project also necessitated routing new chilled water and heating hot water lines under and over an existing roadway and railroad track.

Electrical elements include interior and exterior lighting, power, security and alarm communication, and other special systems. We also integrated eleven (11) passenger-loading bridges in our design.
