PDX North Terminal Heating Water
Carleton Hart and KPFF Civil Engineers were asked by the Port to collaborate on the project, with both firms serving as co-prime consultants while providing the Port with a seamless design and project management experience. Both firms hired PAE to provide mechanical and electrical engineering, assuring proper coordination and a consistent design approach. The overall goal of the project was to separate the Port’s fire suppression water service from its domestic water service, per an agreement between the City of Portland and the Port of Portland.
The scope involved piping and equipment upgrades to 10 separate areas in and around the terminal building, with work occurring on the airfield, around the perimeter of the concourses, along NE Airport Way, in the employee parking lot, and within support areas on the deplaning level of PDX. The work was carefully planned and phased around various work area and construction window restrictions, so that project impacts would be kept to a minimum.
