United Airlines C71 Bus Holding Expansion

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. Holt participated in extensive collaborative efforts with the Architect to complete an interior renovation and expansion of the existing hold room space, in addition to a new storefront.


The new expansion required extensive ground improvement, utilizing 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 were constructed for passengers to access the inter-terminal busing area. Permanent walls were removed to increase the seating capacity, while the bus area at Operations Level was upgraded to include new canopy panels, paint, MEP relocation and the escalators. In addition to the hold room, a new Cibo Express was integrated into the expansion with signage, HVAC, refrigeration, and millwork.
