EXPERT PROFESSIONAL BUILDING CODE CONSULTANTS FOR REVIEW OF THE CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS FOR THE JOHN F. KENNEDY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT REDEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (JFKR) DURING 2020 THROUGH 2025
For background with respect to The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (the “Authority”), see www.panynj.gov. Additionally, an electronic version of the Authority’s most recent Annual Report is available at http://www.panynj.gov/corporate-information/annual-reports.html.
John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) opened in 1948 and originally operated with one terminal and one runway while serving approximately 200,000 passengers annually. Today, JFK operates with six terminals and four runways. In 2018, the airport accommodated an estimated 455,000 flights and served a record of approximately 61.6 million passengers. Demand at the airport is expected to continue to increase, with current forecasts estimating activity reaching 100 million annual passengers by 2050.
Current terminal development is challenged by airfield and landside infrastructure that have been static since the early 1990s. As a result, during certain peak periods the airport cannot adequately support today’s passenger volumes. As passenger and air traffic demand increases, the already congested airfield, terminals and landside roadway and parking systems will be further strained. In addition, to date, JFK’s terminals have been developed as independent projects, without the benefit of an overall master plan to guide their development. This independent development has created a fragmented airport with inconsistent levels of service across the terminals.
In January 2015, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo created an Airport Advisory Panel (Advisory Panel) to make recommendations to the State of New York and the Authority regarding the transformation of LaGuardia and JFK Airports and to prepare a JFK Vision Plan. In February 2017, the Board authorized Phase I Planning work for future Airport redevelopment, including development of an Airport master plan. This master planning work would focus on a comprehensive, airport-wide framework for transforming JFK into a unified, world-class airport, following upon recommendations included in the JFK Vision Plan.
In December 2018, the Board authorized Phase II planning efforts and supporting construction work including planning for the overall Airport redevelopment and certain improvements and facilities on-Airport, but outside the terminals, including capacity improvements for AirTrain JFK; a new multi-use aircraft facility shared among all air carriers; extension of Taxiway K4 to better manage current volumes of traffic on the airport’s taxiways; a new ground transportation center; and a new central electrical substation. It also authorized an Airport-wide work-order program to perform general construction work such as structural steel erection, masonry, building finishes, fire protections, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and similar tasks.
