Burns Guides John F. Kennedy International Airport Redevelopment Program
Burns is advising the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey with owner representation services during redevelopment of the John F. Kennedy International Airport central terminal.
Burns’ role will support installation of communications infrastructure, facilitating a major reconfiguration of the central terminal roadways and construction of a new ground transportation center.
The JFK Vision Plan calls for an overhaul of the airport’s eight terminals into one interconnected airport. Reconstructing the roadway network to simplify terminal access will involve comprehensive upgrades of the central terminal area’s underground utilities.
Burns will offer guidance throughout the design-build project:
- Authoring design criteria focused on technology systems and communications infrastructure that will modernize airport infrastructure with fiber-optic cable networks.
- Performing holistic evaluation of the interface between on-going terminal projects and the central terminal area utilities.
- Minimizing central terminal construction impacts on new and existing utilities.
Substantial completion of the Roadway and Ground Transportation Project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2025.
