Los Angeles International Airport Central Utility Plant Replacement

Los Angeles International Airport Central Utility Plant Replacement

Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed:
Given the project’s complexity (keeping the existing 50-year-old plant in service to the airport during construction without affecting ongoing operations) in addition to potential risks and hazards, the owner chose the design-build delivery method to seek the optimal solution for its new central utility plant.
 
Summary:
The Los Angeles International Airport Central Utility Plant Replacement project (LAX CUP) provided one of the world’s busiest airports with a modern, state-of-the-art, computer-managed utility plant. The design-build effort greatly improved the reliability and efficiency of the airport’s utility service and helped the owner provide an enhanced passenger experience.
