Orlando International Airport Intermodal Terminal Facility
Award of Merit
Owner: Greater Orlando Aviation Authority
Lead Design Firm: SchenkelShultz Architecture
General Contractor: Turner-Kiewit Joint Venture
A joint venture of Turner Construction Co. and Kiewit completed the Intermodal Terminal Facility (ITF) at Orlando International Airport, which marked the first phase of the expansion of the South Airport expansion. Supporting a newly constructed automated people mover complex—built simultaneously via a separate contractor team—the multimodal transportation facility includes a train station, passenger drop-off lobby, three elevated rail viaducts, passenger platforms and shell space for a future rail tenant. The resulting new terminal serves various modes of rail—including inter-city rail, commuter rail and light rail—as well as vehicle transport for OIA.
The contract included construction of the elevated rail viaduct structure that supports the rail, associated rail platforms, rail terminal, transfer level, shell space for ticketing and passenger lounge, passenger drop-off lobby and the associated canopies for bus/taxi drop-off. The scope included extensive deep foundations for the elevated track viaduct, cast-in-place concrete, precast double-tees, steel canopies, curtain wall assemblies and metal panels.
