Delta Airlines has increased flights to JFK International Airport through the improvements to Terminal 2, 3 and 4. Delta has constructed the Phase I portion of a project, which is a $1.2 billion improvement to Terminal 4 Concourse B. DY Consultants was responsible for the design of the civil portion of the second phase of this large scale redevelopment project that relocates the gates for their regional jets from Terminal 2 to the new expanded Terminal 4, Concourse B. The Phase II design adds eleven additional gates to Terminal 4, Concourse B. This portion of the project was successfully completed and was officially opened in early 2015.
Additionally, an expansion of over 100,000 sf of Terminal 4 Concourse A will provide gates for the larger Group V and Group VI aircraft including the A380 which is planned for the third phase of this project. The Concourse A design which is currently underway will include operations for 10 gates and for future expansion to 16 gates. The apron which will service the Concourse A expansion has increased to 60,000 square yards of pavement reconstruction. Within the expanded apron area is a complex network of utilities that will be modified to accomidate the new expanded concourse.
Both projects for Terminal 4 Concourse A and B required design packages for the “enabling” portion as well as for final construction. DY engineering services included the following: Pavement Design; Demolition Design; Geometry; Vertical Alignment & Grading; Drainage Design; Utility Design; Airfield Lighting; Safety and Operations and Phasing.
