Orlando International Airport Airsides 1 and 3
CTH+A is leading the rehabilitation and expansion of Airsides 1 and 3 at Orlando International Airport to conform with the newer Airside 4 in terms of passenger circulation, concession space/public seating, systems efficiency, building envelope, and interior finishes at a cost considerably less than building two new airsides.
Phase I of the project was completed last year. It included repairing damage caused by the three hurricanes that hit the Orlando area in 2004 as well as new roofs and new high-efficiency storefront glazing systems for all wings on both airsides.
Work on Phase II is underway and slated for completion by December 2009. This rehabilitation work includes expanding the transfer level hubs and adding new central dome skylights, along with new skylight bays in all wings, new storefront glazing systems in the connectors and hubs and additional electrical power systems and air conditioning capacity for both airsides. Phase II of the project also includes rehabilitating the hold rooms in all airside wings and hubs to meet current code and improving the landside Central Energy Plant (CEP) with a new replacement chiller and electric fire pump room and associated equipment.
CTH+A is working closely with the project’s general contractor, Hensel Phelps, as well as other project team members Rhodes + Brito Architects, MLM-Martin Architects, engineering consultants, PMA, GCI, the GOAA staff and City of Orlando inspectors to keep this project on schedule and within budget with minimum interruptions to systems, safety and security of the airfield.
