Burns Transforms Pittsburgh International Airport Technology Systems
Following a year-long delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Pittsburgh International Airport has restarted their Terminal Modernization Program. Burns is advising Allegheny County Airport Authority (ACAA) across a wide range of information technology, special systems, security, and life safety systems.
The new 700,000-square-foot terminal facility and multi-modal complex will consolidate and streamline operations including ticketing, baggage handling, security, ground transportation, and concessions. Site-enabling construction is underway, and design is essentially complete.
By reducing travel time and centralizing services, the modernization project will improve travel efficiency, while establishing a special first impression for the Pittsburgh region. The design team led by Gensler, HDR and luis vidal + architects reimagined the terminal’s appearance, using an undulating roof and decorative wood ceiling to evoke the rolling hills of the surrounding Pittsburgh region.
Burns’ role in the Terminal Modernization Program includes:
- Access Control System,
- Cellular Distributed Antenna System,
- Common Use Systems,
- Electronic Video Information Display Systems,
- Data/Telecommunications Infrastructure,
- Life Safety (Fire Alarm) Systems,
- Public Address System,
- Public Safety Distributed Antenna Systems,
- Surveillance System,
- Wired and Wireless Networks.
Pittsburgh International Airport’s new terminal is scheduled to open in 2025.
