Notable Aviation Projects
Tutor Perini has a long history of construction of airport and transportation projects. Tutor Perini was the general contractor for the $1.2 billion McCarran International Airport (LAS) Terminal 3, including a new 1.9 million-square-foot building with a transportation system of elevated roadway structures fronting the facility, over-roadway pedestrian bridges, underground automated transit system infrastructure, and an aircraft ramp. TPC also constructed the International Terminal at San Francisco International Airport (SFO), ranked the seventh busiest U.S. airport by total passenger boardings in 2015. The International Terminal features include 24 international gates, customs ability to handle 5,000 passengers per hour, 12 baggage carousels, 32 elevators, 26 escalators, 168 high-tech check-in counters, 382,000 square feet of metal and glass, 18 acres of terrazzo and carpet, 147,000 square feet of retail space for world-class restaurants and retail stores, and state-of-the-art security systems. Maintaining access to the existing terminals was of critical importance during the construction.

Grimshaw was founded in 1980 and became a partnership in 2007. Growing steadily over the last three decades, the firm now operates worldwide, with offices in New York, London, Melbourne, Sydney, and Doha, employing more than 500 staff members. Grimshaw has succeeded internationally because its approach is based on the continuation of a common design language, rigor, and culture established by the founder of the practice—Sir Nicholas Grimshaw—as well as a strong commitment to exploration and a belief in the transformative nature of architecture.

The firm’s New York office was established in 2001 and has since received numerous accolades and awards, including the 2015 Medal of Honor from the American Institute of Architects New York. The studio is a place of innovation, invention, and imagination—a place where the atmosphere is more that of a laboratory or think tank than of a typical architecture office. Most projects designed by the New York office are local, running the gamut from bus shelters and subway stations to museums and sustainable housing. It is Grimshaw’s aim to be wholeheartedly engaged in the urban and natural environments and from this awareness to generate truly functional, inspiring, and transformative design.

The firm is dedicated to the deepest level of involvement in the design of buildings. This commitment stems from a desire to gain familiarity with local manufacturing and building processes and to develop relationships with the best consultants to deliver buildings that meet the highest possible standards. In part, this motivation is based on a yearning to be truly engaged in the evolution of a place—to contribute to its development on a meaningful and logical level.

STV has enjoyed a long and successful partnership with the PANYNJ, working with the Port Authority to deliver some of the most significant transportation initiatives in the region. As a managing partner of the Downtown Design Partnership, STV's team designed and delivered the highly complex, $3.8 billion World Trade Center (WTC) Transportation Hub. The firm has also been at the vanguard of other highly successful initiatives, such as serving as lead designer for the AirRail Transit Consortium, which delivered the $1.3 billion AirTrain JFK, and a member of the design joint venture that delivered the $533 million vehicle security center and tour bus parking facility at the World Trade Center, in downtown Manhattan.

As a major participant in these and many of the region’s other prominent aviation and transportation initiatives, STV has helped shape current industry trends, including alternative delivery methods such as design-build and design-bid-build, as well as the use of sustainable building techniques that have resulted in multiple LEED certifications.
