PDX Baggage Screening Improvements

Carleton Hart Architecture, in collaboration with PGAL Architecture, completed the BSI project in 2012. The project involved the installation of a completely new outbound baggage conveyor system for the entire airport, incorporating inline baggage screening technology. Design and construction took approximately 10 years. The process involved strong agency coordination among the Port of Portland, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), airlines, concession tenants, and the architectural/engineering team.

CHA’s primary role was project manager for the entire design team. We were responsible for coordinating all drawings and specifications, engaging and coordinating consultants, and managing construction administration of a multi-faceted project.
