Our team is providing design and construction administration services for the new terminal and is coordinating efforts in collaboration with Delta and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey to determine airside, terminal and landside operational needs.
Even before construction began, the existing infrastructure was significantly limited and required major expansion to the power, water, sanitary and communication infrastructure systems. A new substation has been installed as part of the project and all stakeholders, including Burns & McDonnell, Consolidated Edison, the Port Authority and Delta, developed a solution for this substation to be located within the new Terminal C.
The project also includes new access roads, security measures and parking facilities, in addition to the opportunity to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification. One of the project’s sustainable components features a new ice storage system that will be able to create ice during the night to offset high daytime electrical costs.
The new terminal will be approximately 1.1 million square feet and will include a new headhouse, four concourses and a new Delta Sky Club. It will accommodate a total of 37 gates, which will be connected by a centralized check-in lobby, security checkpoint and baggage claim. Two concourses and the headhouse will be substantially complete and operational by early 2022, with the rest of the program scheduled to finish in 2026.
