This project included a new 31,500-SF state-of-the-art bag claim facility and 9,000-SF of alterations to an existing pedestrian bridge nestled between the existing Departures Road and the existing Terminal E-F parking garage building across from the existing Terminal F ticketing building. The project also included 400-feet of bag conveyor bridge featuring a 100-foot clear span over the Departures Road that was erected in a single night over Departure Road from the tunnel decline to the existing ticketing building. This project will transfer the inbound bag claim process out of the existing Terminal F ticketing building to enhance the flow of travelers and improve the safety of their route to the arrivals area and ground transportation. The bag claim project also included realignment of the Commercial Road to create pull-off lanes at the new F Bag Claim east entrance canopy.
In addition to the new baggage facility work, the project also included 40,000-SF of phased renovations and alterations in the existing occupied Terminal F Ticketing building and Terminal E-F connector. Significant features included additional vertical circulation, relocating the secure checkpoint and secure exit with increased capacity, creating a secure glazed mezzanine to relocate the SIDA line and converting the E-F connector interface at Terminal E from public to secure. Additional escalators and elevators were added to the existing ticketing building to guide and improve the efficiency of traveler circulation through the terminal while enhancing the aesthetic of travelers’ experience. Once completed, the renovations allowed passengers to circulate between Terminal F and the other terminals without leaving the secure area, which was previously only accomplished by shuttle bus from Terminal C.
The new Baggage Claim building was initially required to achieve LEED® silver but with the hard work of the team the project achieved LEED gold certification.
