Mineta International Airport, North Concourse

Our engineers utilized advance analysis applications to solve both mechanical and electrical system issues relating to energy-efficiency during the design phase.

 

The 400,000 sf Concourse sits between Terminal A and Terminal C. The North Concourse stretches 1,600 feet and contains two stories above grade. It will support 10 gates, as well as new passenger hold rooms, baggage claim, ticket counters, security checkpoints, public restrooms, retail spaces, concessions, airline offices, support operations offices, baggage security screening for the entire airport and a new departures curb.

The new concourse also offers an underground right-of-way level to provide for baggage handling conveyors.

The project also includes an expansion of:

  • Airport-wide central chilled and heating water plant

  • New site electrical substations and 12KV distribution and

  • Upgrade of the Airport Building Management and Control Systems to a BACNet DDC system

Our engineers utilized advance analysis applications to solve both mechanical and electrical system issues relating to energy-efficiency during the design phase. Applications included:

  • Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)

  • Illumination radiance (LightScape)

  • Daylighting (Lumen Micro)

  • Electrical systems analysis (DAPPER)

  • Energy modeling (DOE2)

  • HVAC loads (Trace)
