South Terminal C Technology and Multi-Media System Engineering at Orlando International Airport
The new 16-gate world class international terminal is the first phase in the expansion of the airport to the south. The new 1.6M SF terminal will be constructed in conjunction with a new Intermodal Transportation Facility which will provide rail access to the airport. The overall program construction cost is $1.8B. Burns is providing all low-voltage technology and special systems design engineering to support an enhanced passenger experience. This also includes the design of an Experiential Media Environment, or interactive multi-media features which are built into the architectural aesthetics. Another focus of Burns scope will be on enhanced passenger processing technologies. We are also working on the implementation of several innovative technologies which may include a Passive Optical Network (PON) system to help reduce, or in some cases eliminate, the need for IT/communications rooms. In addition, Burns is designing a test lab to help the Airport Authority investigate and test the performance of new technologies before widespread implementation.
