The North Terminal Station project at the Orlando International Airport consisted of a three-level automated guideway system passenger terminal building of approximately 31,000 square feet. The terminal is the connection point between the existing north and new south terminals.
One of the greatest challenges the PCL team encountered and overcame was limited site access. The site was very small and was penned in by the main terminal to the west, another station to the north, and the airplane bridge to the south. This left only one available entry and exit on the east. One method used to overcome this problem was a tower crane with an extended reach. The crane would remove materials from delivery trucks and place them almost anywhere onsite. To compensate for the lack of space, PCL team members carefully sequenced the trades and were able to catch potential problems before they became issues.
