Tampa International Airport Airside "E"
Tampa International Airport Airside "E" - FL
Tampa International Airport's Airside "E" terminal expansion project was completed by John K. Kirlin, Inc., along with Beers Construction Company. Consisting of fourteen gates, covering more than 287,000 square feet of area, this project was one of the few new airport construction projects that did not experience set-backs or cancellation as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Kirlin's work included the HVAC systems and equipment, pre-conditioned air systems and equipment, and all of the plumbing. The HVAC system includes two eight-hundred-ton centrifugal chillers, eighteen AHUs/OAHUs, nineteen FCUs, one-hundred VAV/CAV boxes, two built up ceramic cooling towers with associated pumps, VFDs, and more.
The plumbing scope consisted of lead and oakum W and V systems, one duplex variable speed booster pumping system, eight potable water cabinets serving the gates, one one-thousand gallon above-ground fuel oil tank with monitoring and alarm system, plus all associated fixtures and equipment. The majority of the HVAC and plumbing work had to be completed within a four month time period, so temporary air conditioning was supplied for the finish trades in order to meet a substantial completion date of September 1, 2002.
