United Airlines Bus Holding Expansion

As Construction Manager for United Airlines, Holt collaborated with the Architect in the design and construction of an efficient inter-terminal bus service to support its current and future operations.

The Construction and renovation consisted of the inter-terminal bus hold room and busing structure which connects passengers from Terminal C to A and B. The project included the interior renovation and expansion of the existing hold room space, in addition to a new storefront.

The new expansion required extensive ground improvement, by use of drilled shaft “piles”. A new steel structure was erected joining up to the existing terminal building to expand on the existing hold room.

An elevator and dual escalators was constructed for passengers to access the inter-terminal busing area. Permanent walls were removed to increase the seating capacity and the bus area at Operations Level was upgraded to include new canopy panels, paint, MEP relocation and the aforementioned escalators.

In addition to the hold room, a new Cibo Express was integrated into the expansion with signage, HVAC, refrigeration and millwork.
