LAX Midfield Satellite Concourse Wins National DBIA Award

We’re proud to share the Los Angeles International Airport‘s Midfield Satellite Concourse has received a National Award of Merit in the aviation category from the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA). The monumental project is the largest progressive design-build project ever undertaken at LAX and opened to accolades from the City of Los Angeles, as well as the airport and its passengers.

The multi-billion-dollar concourse was delivered by an impressively integrated team, which included architecture led by Corgan, Gensler, CannonDesign and construction led by Turner and PCL. Our integrated approach co-located architects, engineers and technical staff alongside the construction and Los Angeles World Airport teams to form a cohesive design-build entity from the start of the project to its finish.

A “Gateway” addition to the Tom Bradley International Terminal connects passengers to a 1,000-foot underground Passenger Tunnel connecting to the Midfield Satellite Concourse.

The 750,000 SF, 15-gate concourse encompasses over seven acres and includes the construction of multiple buildings and two tunnels under active taxiways. CannonDesign’s primary role on the team was providing architecture and construction services for the new “Gateway” addition to the Tom Bradley International Terminal and the nearly 1,000-foot underground Passenger Tunnel that connects the terminal to the new Midfield Satellite Concourse.

The DBIA’s National Awards program recognizes the most innovative, resilient, cost and time-efficient projects in the nation. Each of the national award winners will now go on to compete for a National Award of Excellence and the Project of the Year to be announced at DBIA’s Design-Build Conference and Expo Awards Ceremony in November.
