South Security Checkpoint Expansion
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (HJAIA)
The most utilized security screening checkpoint at the world’s most traveled airport was recently expanded by New South-Synergy, A Joint Venture.
In addition to increasing the number of security lanes available, the project installed eight new CT scanners which are a first for airport security screening. This new technology is still in its trial phase and with that came numerous construction challenges for the project team. In addition to working in an active airport, the project team had to contract, coordinate, and install technology that is still in development and never before used at an airport facility.
Evolving equipment and project requirements, local and federal agency approvals, international travel restrictions, TSA authorizations, unforeseen conditions, and more had to be overcome to deliver this project ahead of schedule and under budget. All of which occurred while maintaining the passenger experience and without impact to operations or security screening.
