Milender White removed four (4) existing escalators that were quickly approaching their end of service life and installed four (4) new escalators to carry passengers from the Train Platform (AGTS) Level, past the Apron Level, and to the Concourse Level. In addition to the new escalators, extensive structural modifications were performed to allow for future expansion, doubling the current escalator capacity. Logistical challenges included limited access, constricted working conditions, work sequencing, and security constraints.
Minimizing Impacts on Airport Operations – The majority of the work was performed between the hours of 9 PM and 5 AM to reduce the impact of noise, vibrations, odors, and dust on adjacent airport operations during the busier daytime hours. All waste material was hauled out by way of Gate C42 and trucked to DIA’s recycling facility when possible.
