The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) has engaged HOK to design a regional transit centre and passenger processing facility at Toronto Pearson International Airport. The first phase of the new facility could be in place by the mid-2020s.
The joint venture is led by Chicago-based Jacobs Engineering Group. Its members include Ardmore/Roderick, African-American contractors with a 15 percent share; GSG Consultants, a Latino partner and J.A. Watts, a women’s business enterprise, each with a 10 percent cut; Bradshaw Consultants and Globetrotter Engineering, minority business enterprises with five and four percent respectively.

Jacobs’ scope of work includes project management, procurement, construction and commissioning activities for airport buildings and associated infrastructure. Jacobs’ initial framework agreement with MAG runs until 2020, with options for extensions up to 2025.

Improving Security and Protecting the Public Areas of Airports
Thursday, February 15, 2018
1:00 PM – 2:30 PM EST
While the passenger checkpoint has served as a focal point of airport security, recent high-profile attacks at international and U.S. airports have elevated the importance of security, emergency response, and recovery efforts in the public areas of terminals. Each incident has resulted in a wealth of information on passenger reactions, first responder actions, and potential lessons learned on how future incidents can be mitigated. This ACC Institute online training program will focus on an assessment of the shooting and spontaneous evacuations that took place at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in early 2017, and specific recommendations identified to help respond and rebound from similar future incidents. Recent activities and recommendations identified by the industry and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on information sharing, attack prevention, and infrastructure and public protection will also be explored.
