TERMINAL D-E EXPANSION 

This $341 million project consists of a new multi-level connector building between Terminals D and E, a 50,000 square foot addition to the Terminal E concourse, a 9,000 square foot connector building between Baggage Claims D and E, and various renovations to areas within the two terminals and the adjacent Satellite Thermal Plant.
 
Phases 1A and 1B are the new multi-level connector building between Terminals D and E. The first level houses a new baggage make-up area that will replace the existing bag make-up in each of the terminals. This area also contains an Explosive Detection System (EDS) to be operated by the TSA as part of an in-line baggage screening system. The second level includes a 14-lane passenger security screening area serving both terminals.  On the third level are the Division of Aviation offices. Phase 1A, consisting of site work, building foundations, utility relocation and structural steel placement for the connector building, is complete. Phase IB included the building envelope and interior fit out to complete the connector building. 
 
Phase 2 modifications will include an increase of 23 ticket counter positions with larger queuing spaces, increased public circulation, new concessions, renovation of other tenant spaces, and expansion of the D and E Bag Claim facilities.  The Bag Claim buildings for Terminals D and E will be connected with a one-story addition that will contain two new baggage carousels and the existing facilities will be renovated.
 
E Terminal and E Concourse were expanded in Phase 3 with the construction of a 2-level addition at the end of the concourse. Airline Operations space is at ground level while the second level provides hold rooms, concessions, rest rooms, and operations space to accommodate three new gates and four relocated gates.

MECHANICAL ROOM UPGRADES

Mechanical Rooms 9, 12, 13, and 17 have seventeen Air Handling Units (AHU's) and Heating and Ventilating Units (HV's).  These units serve the second and third floor between Terminals B through C.  Each unit beyond their median service life and needs to be replaced or restored.
