The first phase of the seismic and security retrofit at ANC South Terminal launched a multistage project for the 300,000-square-foot facility. As the state of Alaska’s primary entry point, the terminal had to remain completely operational throughout construction.
Work consisted of selective demolition and abatement, installation of structural upgrades, a new store front on the land side of the terminal, and a new glass-and-window wall on the air side. Interior work included a new TSA screening space, a bathroom remodel, and improvements and upgrades to the HVAC systems. PCL worked with the owner, design team, and airlines to develop and implement a phasing plan that allowed daily operations to continue uninterrupted, even though one concourse was completely shut down.
