Tampa International Airport Airside "A" Terminal
Tampa International Airport Airside "A" Terminal - FL
The Airside "A" Terminal added 253,000 square feet of operating space to Tampa International Airport. The complete project was completed on an aggressive eighteen month schedule. The new facility opened eighteen additional passenger-boarding areas for the airport.
Pipe fitting, HVAC, sheet-metal water treatment, and a jet fuel piping system were all included as part of the complex mechanical package for this project. The two-story terminal facility's HVAC service is provided through the use of two four-hundred ton chillers, four pumps, eighteen air handling units and two built-in-place cooling towers. Additional HVAC service is provided for passenger boarding bridges and their associated aircraft through a state-of-the-art preconditioned air system. The system includes three one-hundred-fifty ton screw chillers, four ice storage tanks, seven pumps, and eighteen air handling units, all of which are for the terminal's gates, along with associated telescoping duct work and controls.
Another significant component of the work was the construction of the jet "A" fueling system which required some 6,000 linear feet of underground double-walled containment piping. The system serves thirty-two fueling pits for aircraft of various sizes. To comply with the highest levels of safety measurements, all of the installed piping is one-hundred percent x-ray quality.
