Text size: A A

Clark/McCarthy, A Joint Venture, recently finished the $575-million, LEED silver-certified Tom Bradley International Terminal Improvements and Baggage Screening Systems Project at Los Angeles International Airport.

Over two-and-a-half years, the Clark/McCarthy team completed 1 million sq ft of renovation work and upgrades. The project team replaced TBIT’s outdated baggage handling system with an in-line system, completely overhauled its existing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and information technology systems, and built a new gate to accommodate the 800-passenger Airbus A380 aircraft.

Though original design plans did not account for sustainability, the TBIT project earned LEED silver certification in March. Clark/McCarthy worked with the owner and project partners to incorporate green elements including low-emitting, recycled, and regional building materials. The terminal’s new mechanical and electrical systems perform more than 17.5% more efficiently than the old systems. The TBIT project is the first airport terminal renovation in the country to earn LEED certification.

Major subcontractors on the project include Bragg Crane & Rigging, ISEC Inc., Key Air, Murray Co., Nuprecon, Sasco, Siemens Airport Logistics and Standard Drywall.
