Please describe the project specifications
ATLNext is the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s new development program. It consists of a series of projects over the next 20 years designed to boost capacity, renew and replace existing facilities, and enhance ATL’s aesthetic appeal. The Central Passenger Terminal Complex (CPTC) consists of two independent facilities for domestic and international passengers, and seven gate concourses. Revamping the domestic complex will enhance the customer experience and boost the facilities’ aesthetic appeal.
What is unique or complex about the project?
PFEIFER built a pair of massive ETFE canopies for the ATLNext Central Passenger Terminal Complex project at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. FabriTec’s scope of the project consists of the fabrication and installation of 345,500 square feet of ETFE cushions on the two massive 874-foot long canopy structures covering the arrivals and departures area of the airport. With an enormous span, the canopies cover eight lanes of traffic along with bus lanes and stations. The pressurized double-layered ETFE cushions are mounted on framework created with 3,500 tons of steel. The canopies are embedded with thousands of computer-controlled LED lights capable of projecting a dynamic light show on the ETFE cushions.
