The proposed O’Hare Global Terminal & Concourse (OGT) has the potential to transform the image of O’Hare by setting a new precedent for global aviation. Providing passengers, employees, and tenants with a highly efficient airport that meets the needs of a growing international and domestic population. The $8.5B project includes replacing outdated facilities under Terminal Area Plan (TAP) that will include constructing new concourses, modifying some existing concourses and connectors, and demolishing/replacing the existing Terminal 2 with a new international OGT facility. The project will move O’Hare and the City of Chicago forward with a world-class facility, which will be one of the largest and most cutting edge terminals in the nation when complete.
IEI is part of the StudioORD design team that will deliver the OGT project. IEI will work closely with Kimley Horn and Associates, the lead airfield engineer on the project team, performing civil engineering design support and leading the utility design and relocation for the project. This includes a full assessment of the existing utilities; conflict identification and mitigation; preparation of contract plans for demolition, pavement jointing and utilities relocation; and development and design of new utilities for the OGT. IEI will be intimately involved in coordination of various stakeholders, with the satellite concourses S1 and S2 design team and the utilities tunnel lead engineering team.
Spearheaded by the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA), the O’Hare Global Terminal and Concourse Project will have a significant economic impact to the City and a major influence on the national/international air system.
