Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) has reached a construction milestone with the topping out of the Tom Bradley International Terminal Core with a beam signing and ceremony honoring the dedicated workers realizing this transformative project.
The terminal is one of seven new cores in a $490 million project scheduled to be completed in 2024.
“The topping out of LAX’s Tom Bradley International Terminal Core represents an important moment for one of the airport’s most ambitious and anticipated initiatives to date–creating a sustainable and interconnected network for getting to and from the airport that has the added benefit of alleviating congestion and passenger wait times,” said Justin Erbacci, chief executive officer, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).
“We thank our architecture and construction partners, Austin Commercial, LP, and the community of local workers whose efforts are helping to achieve our vision.”
Designed and constructed to achieve both Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver status and CalGreen’s Tier 1 certification, the project demonstrates LAX’s ongoing commitment to sustainability.
“I want to congratulate the Austin Commercial crew and subcontractors and recognize LAWA for creating an environment where our partnership thrives. We are looking forward to continuing our shared success at LAX and the completion of this important project,” said Ralph Ketchum, senior vice-president of Austin Commercial.
