The HIDI Group provided mechanical and electrical consulting for this $130 million expansion project. The work was completed over seven years while the airport remained fully operational. The 300,000 ft² project posed unique scheduling and logistic challenges due to a lack of local materials and a corrosive atmosphere that prohibited storage. This was overcome via detailed bi-monthly material forecasting. In addition, detailed solutions and training was provided to educate the construction team regarding North American processes with relation to standards such as Health & Safety, Quality Control, etc.
The electrical systems included emergency back-up power (three 1250 kW diesel generators) for the entire airport facility; runway lighting design; power distribution; finger imprint identification; lighting, lighting controls and lighting protection; fire alarm; parking control; CCTV and access control.
Completion Date: 2006
