Logan International Airport Terminal C

Logan Int’l Airport, 300 Terminal C, East Boston, MA, 02128

Making connections… right

With 28 million passengers (2011), Logan International Airport must continually adapt to accommodate ever-growing passenger traffic. A good example of this is their 512 ton structural steel and 76,000 sq ft steel deck project.

Because we were dealing with part of an existing structure, it had to be thoroughly surveyed before the connection plates were detailed and fabricated. The columns needed to be X-rayed to provide crucial information to our in-house connection engineering team.

Time Engineering – Constantly adjusting to fluctuating site conditions

Work had to be completed while the airport was still operating within a rather aggressive 10 week erection and installation schedule.

During the project, several of the areas specified on the original erection sequences were not ready. Our Time Engineering team had to constantly adjust to changing site conditions and re-sequence erection and logistics according to what was ready at the time in order to keep things moving and maintain the schedule.

Canatal’s Time Engineering team had to deal with delays as well as numerous modifications to the original plans. Detailing, fabrication and erection teams had to work overtime and off-hours in order to maintain original schedule.

Despite adverse circumstances, Canatal delivered the project on time as promised. Again, we delivered on our commitment.
