This project demonstrates ADCI’s expertise in working for airline clients on a complicated Terminal Apron reconstruction project and our knowledge of airfield paving work in the New York metropolitan area. Also particularly relevant is the requirement to accomplish the apron strengthening and reconstruction on a constrained site while maintaining airline operations throughout.
The apron (Airside) and terminal building renovations to Terminal One at JFK were performed to accommodate the first Airbus 380 operation in the United States. Project components included apron hardstand reconstruction and expansion for the largest commercial aircraft in use. Extensive pavement design effort was required as well as coordinated approval of design with Port Authority and FAA. Maintaining gate flexibility for aircraft parking and servicing and the ability to create Direct Upper Deck Access (DUDA) on an extremely constrained site were significant aspects of this project. The final construction program included reconstruction of four aircraft gate positions, reconstruction of existing pavement to create 2 RON (“remain overnight”) positions, and reconfiguration and modification to 11 gate positions.
Originally started prior to the establishment of ADCI, our principals led the analysis and design effort for the project. Since May 2006, ADCI has served as a subconsultant responsible for construction coordination. Our principal is recognized by the State of New York as the Engineer of Record for all civil design components of the project.
