DFW Airport Terminal C and Terminal A & E Garages

  • The Terminal A Parking Garage is a new vehicle parking structure for Terminal A which expands parking for the airport by 54%
  • The garage includes flat plate floors, one helix structure for vertical vehicle access, simple and intuitive way-finding, close customer access to the terminal, sufficient pedestrian and traffic flow, and an electronic parking guidance system (PGS)
  • Located at Denver International Airport (DEN), Denver, Colorado.
  • The size of the hangar maintenance area is approximately 79,000 sf
  • Hangar is designed to accommodate three Boeing 737 or 787 aircrafts
  • Adjoining single story structure for stores and administration offices has an area of 50,000 sf
  • Superstructure for the hangar roof features 300 ft clear span steel box trusses supported on box columns, all constructed of conventional rolled steel shapes
  • Hangar door is a vertical-lift fabric door (Megadoor) measuring 276 ft wide
  • Height of the door is 72 ft at the center and 54 ft on each side
  • Steel truss supporting the hangar door is designed to accommodate required tolerance of +/- 3/8” for elevation and levelness across the width of the opening
  • Terminal D Inline Baggage Handling System overall renovation brings state-of-the-art technology, security, and efficiency
  • Serves the baggage volume requirements for international travel
  • Coordination and layout of the new conveying systems had to be perfectly orchestrated to prevent intersecting clashes with existing structure, mechanical systems, or the conveyors themselves
  • Revit software was instrumental in the design and layout of the system and for modeling the existing structure
  • United Airlines Air Cargo Facility offers 125,000 sf of warehouse and office space
  • Houses 24 loading docks and 4 tug access docks from the airside apron
  • Building was designed and constructed with load bearing concrete tilt-wall panels at the perimeter
  • Interior steel framing was used for the roof and mezzanine
  • Project consists of a sterile walkway tunnel connecting the D-Gate at Terminal 1 to the Main Gate at Terminal 3
  • Tunnel is approximately 28 ft wide and 800 ft long and runs under the tarmac
  • This connection also includes a two-story vestibule at the DGate transition with stairs, elevators and escalators, and two-jet bridge foundation

About the Project

  • Terminal B South Concourse replaces the original concourse built in 1966
  • Measures 225,000 sf and incorporates 30 gates, seating areas, and retail and dining spaces
  • Building is supported by structural steel and masonry on spread footings and drilled piers

About the Project

  • William P. Hobby Airport West Concourse includes five gates and a new Federal Inspection Services (FIS) facility
  • Includes a two-story building with five “swing gates” able to direct passengers arriving from outside of the US to a new FIS facility for US Customs and Border Protection on the first floor
  • Renovated lobby, an additional 16,000 sf for concessions, and an expanded and reconfigured security screening checkpoint
  • New wing for Southwest Airlines passenger ticketing that can be accessed from the new parking garage
  • Concourse consists of a cast-in-place concrete pan formed beam system
  • Roof of the concourse was constructed out of structural steel

About the Project

  • This aviation project in Conroe, Texas measures 35,000 sf
  • Comprises a pre-engineered metal building
  • Structural system of polished slab on grade and drilled piers

About the Project

  • The Aerospace Center, located at Texas State Technical College (TSTC) in Waco, offers state-of-the-art classrooms, labs and simulators, and public-use facilities
  • Measures 82,500 sf and in combination with the TSTC Waco airport, further enhances TSTC’s reputation as a nationally recognized technical college
  • Facility was constructed using conventional wood stud framing with masonry and exterior metal cladding
  • Hangar was constructed as a pre-engineered metal building

About the Project

  • Replaces an older United Airlines terminal at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH)
  • Measures 318,000 sf, incorporating 11 passenger boarding gates, lounge areas, and retail and dining spaces
  • Concourse consists of a cast-in-place concrete pan formed beam system
  • Roof of the concourse constructed out of structural steel

About the Project

  • Project consists of a new airport terminal to be built in several phases
  • Phase One comprises of a 269,000sf main terminal area with four projecting “wings” or “piers” used as the main boarding areas
  • Roof of the main terminal rises up to 108 feet above the ground floor and cantilevers 82 feet over the passenger drop-off area
  • The radial grid pattern of the roof creates a diamond skin that stretches out to the tube-shaped piers
  • The diagrid roof structure over the main terminal area is arranged in two intersecting radial patterns supported by six large branching columns
  • The circular shape of the pier sections is created by curved exterior structural framing that extends up from the floor and arches over the boarding area from both sides to create overlapping structural shells

About the Project

  • Project consists of a new, multi-level airport terminal to enhance circulation and overall passenger experience
  • Lower levels incorporate a cast-in-place concrete structural system for the new processor and airport wing, and cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete for the parking garage
  • The roof of the structure cantilevers over drop-off lanes and incorporates wing-shaped truss framing
  • A new control tower is comprised of reinforced concrete
  • This multi-year upgrade to the Miami International Airport expands the South Terminal
  • Includes a 14-gate, 800,000 sf concourse and houses the airport_s international terminal
  • The 5-story building is framed with structural steel, concrete shear walls and composite steel moment frames that act as the wind resisting system
  • Roofs are curved and wing-shaped, accommodating extensive clerestory glazing, which bathes the terminal with an abundance of natural illumination
  • The Immigrations and Customs area features an 800 by 150 feet open area with ceiling heights of 35 feet
  • The design allows for adequate vertical clearance to accommodate a modern luggage system, people movers, and drive ramps
  • Also includes a 65 foot window wall and oversize mural/art supporting walls
