RSW Midfield Terminal Apron Expansion and Associated Taxiways
Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) is a public, county-owned airport located in South Fort Myers, FL. It is a “primary focus city” for AirTran Airways and is one of the top 50 busiest airports in the United States.
In September 2005, a $438 million Midfield Terminal Complex opened, increasing demand capacity to 10 million passengers annually. The terminal complex is currently in the planning phases for expansion, which includes two new concourses (Terminals D & E) and 37 additional gates. Arora contributed to the Runway 6R-24L development program, which entailed a new runway, associated connector taxiways, an Air Traffic Control Tower, an airport rotating beacon, an aircraft rescue and firefighting building, and an airfield lighting vault.
SCOPE OF WORK INCLUDED:
Arora successfully performed several design tasks under the Runway 6R-24L development program. Design efforts included MEP design for upgrades to the existing Airfield Lighting Vault, LED light fixtures, modified underground distribution, junction structures, and LED airfield signage. Construction concluded in 2014 on time and within budget.
