MGAC provided cost and risk management for the design of a new multi-level facility that will provide a secure connection between LAX’s Terminal 4 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT). The building will enhance the traveler experience for those making connections between terminals by reducing travel distances and wait times, as well as easing the transfer of checked luggage.
Specific components of the new building will include a checked baggage inspection system, a baggage transfer facility, and a five-lane passenger security screening checkpoint. For passengers traveling between TBIT and Terminals 5-8, the South Terminals Passenger Bus Port will be provide easy transportation. The building will also feature a rooftop public plaza with outdoor seating. The project features a number of sustainable strategies and is planning to achieve California Green Certification.
MGAC was retained during the design phase in order to provide an independent estimate of construction cost. At the conclusion of the design development phase, we reconciled our estimate with an estimate prepared by others, thereby getting the project budget to accurately reflect the cost of construction.
