NEW YORK, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lend Lease, through its business formerly known as Bovis Lend Lease, is managing the $170 million, 255,000 square foot expansion and renovation of Delta Air Lines' Terminal 4 (T4) Headhouse at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, NY. This project award represents a large portion of phase one of the JFK/IAT Redevelopment Program.

The expansion and reconfiguration of the Terminal 4 Headhouse project, which will remain in operation throughout construction, will add 125,000 square feet of space to the Headhouse and renovate 130,000 square feet in the terminal area. The new, upgraded Terminal 4 will reduce congestion in the airline baggage claim and security checkpoint areas.

The project scope includes new expanded facilities on the east and west sides of the Headhouse, extensive baggage handling system (BHS) modifications and additions, new vertical circulation including escalators, stairs and elevator piles and concrete foundations, new security screening platform over third level retail space, modifications and renovations of building areas including removal of the monumental stairway between the third and fourth levels, and relocation of utilities.

The legacy Bovis Lend Lease team strategically positioned itself by leveraging the firm's international aviation and transportation experience. The team's unique, strategic project approach highlighted project member expertise and collaborative processes designed to ensure price certainty and on-time completion, and incorporated project success planning (PSP) and building information modeling (BIM) as a means to coordinate the complex baggage handling system. Moreover, matching Lend Lease's unparalleled capabilities to Delta's specific project requirements validated the firm's competitive advantage.

McNamara said that Lend Lease looks forward to working side by side with all of the key stakeholders on the expansion and renovation of Delta Air Lines' Terminal 4 Headhouse at JFK.
