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 airport 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's Special Projects division 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.
