LAX United Airlines, Terminal 7 & 8 Cx← Back to Projects
Shorter wait times land at new, eco-friendly United Airlines terminals
Last upgraded in 1998, United Airlines Terminals 7 and 8 at LAX are being enhanced with a new, expansive check in lobby, consolidated security checks, self-tagging bagging kiosks, new baggage carousels, and new high-efficiency building systems. Our Cx team is the project’s commissioning authority, responsible for verifying the building envelope, HVAC, plumbing, building automation, electrical, and lighting controls systems in accordance to Los Angeles Green Building Code requirements. The final phase of construction is in progress and we continue to verify construction per contract documents and perform system testing to assure quality delivery to United Airlines and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA). The new terminals are set to be complete in early 2018.
P2S Cx records all Cx activities using a cloud-based system called CxAlloy® to provide timely communications and coordination among the project team. Our team has identified and corrected numerous issues throughout the course of the project, these issues have been recorded through CxAlloy® where P2S Cx can submit a detailed description of the issue and our recommendations to resolve the problem. P2S Cx closely monitored building envelope testing to ensure quality installation and identified various maintenance and accessibility issues. P2S Cx coordinates with the project team to plan all Cx activities for the project phase by phase. Phased construction of operating terminals can create unique challenges for the commissioning process but P2S Cx has consistently demonstrated the ability to be flexible and accommodating. With constant operation of the terminals and a punctual construction schedule, completed spaces are often required to be attached to unfinished spaces, which requires detailed coordination to assure a successful project.
