Los Angeles

Engineering firm Burns & McDonnell has won a contract to provide design services for the 700,000ft² concourse project at the Los Angeles International Airport.

The Midfield Satellite Concourse, scheduled to open in 2020, is being built with an investment of $960m.

Burns & McDonnell will design underground fuelling facility for the concourse, special systems, and ramps including passenger boarding bridges. Special systems will include IT, electronic displays and Wi-Fi.

The Midfield Satellite Concourse is being built by a joint venture (JV) Turner/PCL, and designed by a JV of Corgan in association with Gensler. Burns & McDonnell is a sub-consultant to the designers.

"Once those renovations are completed, the concourse will be a world-class facility to accommodate additional air service."

The concourse will add 11 gates that would not only increase the capacity for domestic and international travel but also serve the airport while the other terminals are undergoing renovation.

It will be big enough to accommodate the world’s largest wide-body aircraft, the Airbus A380.

Burns & McDonnell aviation & federal division project manager Jim Rosick said: "The new gates will help LAX continue to serve travellers without interruption while pursuing other renovation projects.

"Once those renovations are completed, the concourse will be a world-class facility to accommodate additional air service."

The construction work is expected to begin in 2017 and the concourse will be spread between the north and south runways.

Taxiways and a tunnel will be built at the north concourse to take passengers to the Tom Bradley International Terminal, which is 1,300ft away.

More than 70 million passengers passed through the airport in 2014.
