Completion Date: 2002 – Terminal F; 2003 – Tower; 2004 – Terminal A West
Location: Philadelphia International Airport
As program manager at Philadelphia International Airport, we provided direction for the $750 million terminal improvement project, leading and controlling all program elements for the redevelopment of the airport terminal and core areas, including Terminal F, Terminal A West and the control tower.
A surge of growth in US Airways’ international and domestic commuter operations prompted a need for more airport facilities in Philadelphia. Long-range growth could not be achieved with available international and commuter facilities. The city of Philadelphia and US Airways signed a development lease to build an international terminal and a commuter terminal at Philadelphia International Airport.
Related facilities include a 195-foot ramp operation tower, thermal plant, a $180 million interstate highway/airport arrival/departure roadway relocation, Sun Oil pipeline relocation, two new parking garages and renovations to the airport’s Terminal A. The international terminal, Terminal One, consists of 12 new wide body gates totaling more than 837,000 square feet of additional international operational space. The commuter terminal, Terminal F, includes 38 gates.
