This automated in-line Explosives Detection System (EDS) is the second system of its kind in the country. YHLA's responsibility was to coordinate all parts of the interior with the engineering systems: electrical, conveying, data & communications, security, life safety, and hvac, plus design team lead on construction administration. Compounding the severe head clearance limitations under the existing concourse, was the planning and phasing of three overlapping projects in construction simultaneously: Terminal 2 Renovation, new Electrical Substation, and the 18,500 SF of the EDS. The project's timeliness and success received praise from both the TSA and Southwest Airlines.
