The Terminal 4 Checkpoint C project consisted of a 17,451-square-feet expansion to the checkpoint and the remodeling of 9,723 square feet of the existing checkpoint. The scope included new concrete foundations and columns, structural steel, storefront windows and precast panels. Austin was awarded this project based on performance at the expansion of Checkpoint B in Terminal 4. This expansion included the addition of approximately 20,000 square feet of space and the renovation of 7,000 square feet.
Austin also completed checkpoint expansions at Terminal 3. These vital security areas involved completing the work in an operating airside secured environment, over the busiest spine road in the city without any disruption to existing airline or airport operations. At Checkpoint C, Austin’s Means and Methods Modeling was implemented for two of the major steel picks. This involved graphically animating the picks in BIM as part of the pre-task planning.
