MSY New North Terminal Construction Tour
February 1 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm$20 – $30
Join the AIA New Orleans for a Construction Tour of the new MSY North Terminal, opening in 2019. The tour will be lead by Project Architects from the Crescent City Aviation Team (CCAT).
Conceived as a major economic driver for New Orleans post-Katrina, the new North Terminal at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) has been called “the most transformative project for New Orleans since the Superdome” by Mayor Landrieu. As part of a joint venture with Atkins, and in association with Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, LEO A DALY is working with the New Orleans Aviation Board to develop the long-term program, with a design based on the brownfield expansion north of the existing airport. Site development schemes consist of an approximate 650,000-SF facility of 30 Group III contact gates, that will ultimately be expanded to 42 gates. The design includes the following major components: a 2,000-space parking garage; I-10 Interstate highway connection; hotel development site; aircraft apron; FIS and swing gates for international traffic; in-line baggage handling system; retail development; consolidated security screening checkpoint; inbound and outbound baggage; airline ticket offices; and ticketing hall.
Attendees will meet at the New Orleans Costco parking lot at 1:30 PM to board a Motor Coach, which will take the group to and from the airport. Attendees can expect to be back at their vehicles between 4:30 – 5:00 PM. Attendees are required to wear job site appropriate clothing and shoes, but additional Personal Protective Equipment will be provided by the host.
The Event Cost covers transportation and insurance for the event. Attendance is limited to 20. Specific instructions about parking location and waivers will be emailed to attendees prior to the event.
