Oakland International Airport – Terminal 2 Renovation
The renovation consisted of new areas including 3 carousel baggage claim areas, security queuing area, ticketing area, outbound baggage facility, Skycap area, telecom IDF, and additional restrooms. YEI validated mechanical schematic design that was performed by the Master Architect design team, major renovation work on heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems, Direct Digital Control System, new chilled and heating hot water pumping system, domestic boiler system and plumbing system for new restrooms. The design consists of energy efficient measures to beat Title 24 requirements and application for LEED rating.
The Terminal 2 renovation was a very complex project with a requirement of having the Terminal continuously occupied during construction. Phasing was very critical for this project and YEI created phasing solutions for having the existing mechanical equipment continuously running while constructing the new mechanical systems for replacement. The project went well due to the cooperation of Airport Maintenance Staffs in surveying the existing equipment and willingness to share current information. In addition, the contractor was also in place as the Construction Manager at Risk and constructability of the project was reviewed thus making the project go smoother during construction.
