Air Canada, Canada’s largest domestic and international airline, enlisted the help of Holt Construction to complete a lounge meant to emulate both U.S and Canadian styles. This lounge is in the departure gate area, on Level 2 of Terminal B Eastern Concourse, steps away from Air Canada’s departure gates 49, 50 and 51.
With capacity for up to 126 customers in an elegant space that overlooks the concourse, the new LaGuardia Maple Leaf Lounge combines Canadian design and art with metropolitan modern style. The 7,000 square foot project features a self-serve bar, which was built to carry a wide selection of beverages, a business center and comfortable seating with a view of the tarmac. Other details include the installation of a cyber counter equipped with PCs and color printing.
The overall scope of the project included architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection as well as food service, audio visual and communication trades. Lounge features also include the installation of reception desk, seating and dining areas, warming kitchen, office, toilet facilities and support spaces.
