Indianapolis Airport Authority Demolition of Old Terminal, Indiana

Indianapolis, Indiana

The Indianapolis Airport Authority retained DLZ to prepare plans and specifications and provide construction administration. Scope of the project included demolition and asbestos abatement of the former Indianapolis International Airport terminal facilities. The facilities consisted of more than 700,000 square feet of building space. This included tunnel abatement/demolition, utility abandonment, backfill, compaction, and site restoration.

Originally, taken out of service in 2008, the former terminal facilities consisted of the main terminal, four concourses, and a six-story administration building.  This space remains within the Indianapolis Airport Operation Area. Also, the project included the removal of the former jet fuel bulk farm consisting of two 50,000 gallon underground storage tanks (USTs) and a 20,000-gallon spill containment UST. Additionally, included the old glycol wash station, a concrete blast wall, and concrete apron. Furthermore, elevated roadways and retaining walls, two pedestrian bridges and two elevated roadway bridges connecting the upper terminal drive to an existing parking garage structure were also removed. However, the current parking garage at IAA remained untouched throughout the project.

Finally, DLZ completed the evaluation, protection, and replacement of the stormwater system. Next, conducted a condition assessment to determine the structural integrity of the infrastructure. Lastly, the team protected and replaced storm sewers if possible and if in poor condition, or if the ability to complete demolition activities was compromised.
