- Security, Special Systems & FIS Buildout
Our team is assisting in the development, design and application of security systems, other special systems, and airside civil requirements for the FIS project at San Diego International Airport (SAN). One of the security design challenges is coordinating and finalizing for approval the security system to meet both the airport and Customs & Border Patrol (CBP) requirements. The application of the CBP’s new Airport Technical Design Standard (ATDS) before it is fully ratified was another unique requirement of this bags-first facility design.
This 121,000 square-foot expansion/renovation has a total project cost of approximately $230 million. The design-build delivery project consisted of approximately 74,000 square feet of expansion and 47,000 square feet of renovation. Our responsibility included IT/telecommunications, security, ramp services and airside civil. The project also included coordination with the airport authority and CBP to execute this project in only 13 months while maintaining all airport operations.The mitigation strategy was to first reach consensus on how to delineate the camera and access door ownership between the two parties and then apply the appropriate requirement for equipment type and video storage parameters. The fast track design-build project required close communication with the trade partners to purchase the equipment before the design was fully approved.
Our team performed the following design services as part of the Turner/PCL design-build team:
- Camera design
- Video storage design
- Access control
- Enabling works projects
- Special systems design
- Airside civil
