Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (HJAIA)
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport needed a new, fresh, modern look and feel to the existing domestic north and south terminals. The purpose of this project was to renovate, upgrade, and modernize the exterior and interior of the public-facing domestic facilities. The goal was to unify both terminals and enhance the customer experience and service throughout the airport complex.
The two 65-foot-tall steel-framed canopies built over the south and north curbside weigh 3.5 million pounds.
Installing the 4-foot by 10-foot pillars to support the canopies required temporary relocation of Delta Air Lines’ curbside check-in counters, baggage conveyor belts and utilities, including fiber optic cable, phone lines, and pipes. Airport roads, parking garages, and curbside check-in areas remain open and operational while construction continues below, above, and around them.
