john wayne airport - new terminal building and parking structure (terminal 'c')
santa ana, california
The John Wayne Airport (JWA) is located in the heart of Orange County, California. The new Terminal 'C' expansion project is part of a $543 million Airport Improvement Program (AIP) that included the new Terminal 'C', Parking Structure 'C', a new central utility plant, and related projects.
The new Terminal 'C' is approximately 300,000 SF steel-framed addition over 1,400 feet long with multiple expansion joints, and a construction cost of over $150 million. Construction ended in November 2011.
The new terminal includes several unique features:
- The entire expansion was designed to be an essential facility with minimum business interruption during a major seismic event
- Clear views throughout the terminal from landside to airside
- The new barrel roof structure extends the visual rhythm of the existing terminal, with large open spaces and exposed steel roof framing intended to resemble an airplane fuselage
- The public importance of the baggage claim area at the arrival level, a large open atrium space with exposed barrel roof trusses clear spanning above the baggage claim area
IDS has received four award recognitions for their work at John Wayne Airport, including "Project of the Year" by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Orange County Chapter, "Engineering Project Achievement" by the Orange County Engineering Council (OCEC), and two "Excellence in Engineering" Awards for "New Construction" by the Structural Engineers Association of Southern California (SEAOSC).
