The challenge

Our client needed to upgrade and expand their international arrivals building while keeping the US Customs & Border Protection passenger processing facilities operational during construction. Designs and construction needed to account for necessary phasing to maintain airline and federal operations.

Our solution

Our team provided structural designs for the new facilities, which included two new building additions, a new baggage carousel, restrooms, and additional passenger processing space. We also provided a seismic retrofit to the existing structures in accordance with ASCE 41-13 life safety performance objectives.
