    DFW International Airport High-C Gates

    DFW International Airport High-C Gates

    DFW International Airport (Dallas, Texas)

    Client: DFW International Airport | Archer Western, Design-Builder (Prime)
    Project Size: 80,000 sq ft (Pre-fabricated modular envelope)
    Project Value: $115 million
    Project Duration: 2020 to 2022
    Services: Building Information Modeling (BIM)

    Project Description:

    The project involved abating and demolishing the Terminal C extension that was built in 1988 as a temporary structure for five gates (33, 35-37, and 39). The existing facility was outdated, in a state of disrepair, and was not a suitable facility that could provide a high standard of service for passengers.

    During the commencement of the DFW Airport High-C Gates project, the progressive design-build team was required to overcome multiple critical challenges. The project would need to be built directly adjacent to an active terminal space and in the midst of an active ramp area. The construction would need to take place without disrupting the airline operations or the passenger experience. To overcome this, the team creatively expedited the schedule using modular construction shell structures, which were fabricated off-site and transported across the runway to the site in the middle of the night, in order to minimize runway closures. Bradlink’s BIM Manager was tasked with developing the BIM models for this project, led the subcontractors BIM Coordinators to deliver a model to not only assist in addressing critical challenges but to show optional solutions to meet DFW’s project and operational requirements. Bradlink played a crucial role on the Archer Western team to insure the first time ever at DFW relocation and installation of modular terminal facility was precise.

    The project replaced the outdated structure by constructing a new two-level, almost 80,000-square-foot terminal consisting of a pre-fabricated modular envelope (shell and core). The gates at the new domestic flight terminal will accommodate five narrow-body aircraft or regional jets.

    This first of its kind DFW modular project and Design-Build team received an ENR Award in 2022 for Best Airport Project of the Year.
