Terminal 1 construction

Civil Design + Alternative Delivery + Partnership

Our Tim Fish writes about the pivotal role of civil design in aviation projects — particularly design-build projects. He draws from experience with a major terminal redesign executed through construction manager at risk alternative delivery, and on an aggressive schedule.

Throughout final design, representatives from civil, architecture, the construction manager and the airport met at least once a week via Blue Beam Studio to review drawings. When the construction manager laid out plans that required a few extra feet in which to work, HDR’s civil team could reconcile variables based on its knowledge of regulations, permitting, airport operations and the design schedule.
