Terminal A Complex – Philadelphia International Airport

Project description
  • Client Department of Commerce Division of Aviation
  • Services Provided general Construction
  • Location Philadelphia, PA
The international terminal consists of three buildings -- the concourse, a ticketing building and a baggage claim building. Initially slated to consist of five terminals (“A” through “E”), all were completed during the airport’s original construction except for Terminal “A”, which was the focus of this project. One of the unique qualities of the terminal’s design is the high percentage of glass and skylights used, and the configuration of the concourse in the center of the field provides sight lines to all gates and various runways. Working in a multi-prime format, the scope included the demolition and replacement of the existing roof, installation of all underground utilities, completion the exterior skin including clean-up of the existing precast skeleton, and all interior finishes. Responsibilities also included coordinating the four major prime contractors involved in Terminal “A” construction and six other contractors in the vicinity handling apron work, airport communications, and other related activities. Due to its proximity to existing air operations, tight security and close coordination with airport personnel was vital to minimize disruption to operations during the international airport construction project.
