- Clean Slate Ramp Improvements
Continental Airlines needed a clean slate at Newark Liberty International Airport for its aircraft ground operations. This project maximized the number and flexibility of aircraft that could be parked at 68 gates at Terminal C, concourses 1, 2 and 3, and upgraded or relocated the existing equipment, infrastructure and architecture to match the needs of the aircraft that could be parked at each gate. The work consisted of ramp improvements at each concourse. Burns & McDonnell was the prime architect-engineer designer for the relocation and replacement of passenger boarding bridges, fixed walkways, preconditioned air units, 400-Hertz power and 28.5 VDC ground power units, installation of new jet fuel pits and deactivation of existing jet fuel pits, removal of potable water cabinets, reconfiguration of bollards, pavement replacement, and apron striping replacement. Complex phasing and sequencing of gate shutdowns was required so that only two to three gates were out of service at any time.
