Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
Baggage Handling System
The 2012 addition of the 1.2 million-sf Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport created a 40-gate international travel gateway and eliminated the baggage recheck process for Atlanta-bound international passengers.
The ambitious construction project also involved a $250 million renovation to the airport’s existing international terminal, Concourse E. The renovation included demolition and re-installation of the terminal’s baggage handling system, which would connect to the new international terminal and would involve re-routing baggage to bypass U.S. Customs and go directly to baggage claim.
PT&C was engaged by the project’s design firm to develop MII cost estimates at the 35% and 100% stages of design for the modification of Concourse E’s existing infrastructure to accommodate the new baggage handling system layout. PT&C’s estimate included costs for new enclosures on the roof of the existing U.S. Customs offices, new canopies at the apron level, floor penetrations, a conveyor enclosure in the carousel at the U.S. Customs area, and relocation or modification of existing utilities and structures to clear conveyor right of way.
