A Progressive Approach to LAX Next Major Passenger Terminal

Los Angeles International Airport, Midfield Satellite Concourse, Los Angeles, CA

As part of an $8 Billion capital improvement program, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) is developing the Midfield Satellite Concourse (MSC) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) as the next major passenger terminal for the famed airport. The MSC will be a remote facility initially served by an airport bussing operation and a new passenger access tunnel to the airport’s Bradley West Terminal. The project scope also includes the Gateway Building, a 50,000 square foot renovation/addition to the Bradley West Terminal with connections at the concourse, apron and basement levels.

LAWA selected gkkworks/CannonDesign as part of an Integrated Design-Build team for the project. Our team has developed and is part of a progressive integrated project delivery approach with architects and technical staff co-located with our construction team including superintendents, project engineers and QA/QC inspectors to form a cohesive design-build entity. The MSC is one of the largest contracts led by the City of Los Angeles currently and is scheduled for completion in 2020.
