A phased construction approach to facilitate ongoing airport operations is being used to complete the renovation and reconfiguration of Terminal 4. Driving the project is the extension of a major runway to 8,000 feet, necessitating relocation of terminal areas. Upgrades in technology and passenger processing provide a flexible design that allows gates to be used by various sizes of aircraft.
TLC engineered the design measures that indicate the building will be at least 20% more efficient than the baseline building. Given the phased construction, the building elements are individually registered for LEED certification. The first element completed, the west portion, achieved LEED NC 2.2 certification in June 2017.
