This fasttrack, LEED-certified airport project consists of a two-story, 41,430-square-meter (446,000-sq.-ft.) expansion to the south terminal building, and 15,500 square meters (167,000 sq. ft.) of renovations. Functional highlights include seven new passenger gates, 14 boarding bridges, six new elevators and moving walkways, over 100 security doors, and advanced baggage handling and scanning systems.
PCL’s client demanded that the transborder passenger experience be uninterrupted during construction. To accomplish this, PCL engaged an in-house peer-review team and developed a comprehensive schedule, resulting in challenging but achievable milestones. To maintain the quality of transborder passenger experiences during construction, PCL built six temporary gates and a connecting corridor prior to demolition.
PCL achieved all project milestones, and through strong Construction Management practices, delivered a high-quality project, under budget, that exceeded client expectations.
