Location: Tinicum Township, PA | Owner: City of Philadelphia Division of Aviation and US Airways | Cost: $550 million | Completion: 2003
Details: The new 800,000 SF International Terminal A-West serves the Philadelphia region as an international gateway to the City with its ticket hall and lobby, 13-gate concourse and 22,000 SF of retail concessions. The Federal Inspection Services (FIS) area includes a new baggage claim and 56 INS inspection stations to ease the flow of passenger traffic. Due to limited site area at the airport and a desire to maximize aircraft parking positions, the FIS was built over existing roadway and commuter tracks. As the project developed in design, a new 38-gate US Airways (now American Airlines) Regional Terminal F for commuter and regional aircraft was added to the project along with a new 270-foot high ramp control tower.
As part of the Construction Management Team, JBC provided on-site CPM scheduling, construction inspection and coordination. JBC’s primary responsibilities included the development, coordination and management of the 18,000 activity resource-loaded CPM schedule for 25+ prime construction contracts.
