Following 9/11, Burns & McDonnell was the program manager on a $283 million, six-year improvement program to completely transform the airport’s three terminal buildings. We were responsible for design oversight and scheduling with primary responsibility to fulfill the Aviation Department’s goals to minimize the impact of the project on passengers, airlines and airport vendors. Our role included design, procurement, installation and commissioning of campuswide technology infrastructure.
The program included reconfiguring airline assignments to facilitate future growth, upgrading exterior and interior finishes, replacing electrical and mechanical systems, and improvements to concessions areas. The program resulted in larger, consolidated passenger pre-flight holding areas, widened interior corridors, updated fire safety features, new ticketing areas, expanded concessions and a new baggage handling system.
