The transformational Newark Liberty International Airport New Terminal A program, which is expected to debut to the traveling public later this year, was recently honored with a Grand Award by the New Jersey Chapter of the American Concrete Institute.

STV, in association with Grimshaw, is serving as the project’s architect/engineer, as part of the design-build team led by Tutor Perini/Parsons. The $1.4 billion project, which was initiated to address growing demand at the terminal and throughout the New York/New Jersey Metropolitan region, encompasses a 1-million-square-foot 33-gate, common-use terminal coupled with comprehensive airside and landside redevelopment and associated infrastructure work.

The design program includes a two-level T-shaped building located just south of the existing Terminal A, comprising of a central headhouse and a single secure concourse. The scope also includes a 1,000-foot-long pedestrian bridge that connects the terminal to a new CONRAC facility, as well as a 10,000-square-foot emergency generator building.

Now in its 59th year, the New Jersey Concrete Awards recognizes the state’s best concrete projects. For Terminal A’s construction, the project team utilized 15 different mixes and poured in excess of 175,000 yards of concrete. The construction team also had to overcome the challenge of getting concrete to center of the terminal. To do that, about 300 feet of hard pipe and 200 feet of rubber hose was set up, while the concrete needed to be mixed at the appropriate consistency to traverse nearly 500-feet of piping.
