Vancouver International Airport Domestic Terminal Expansion
Hold Bag Screening Expansion + Level 3/4 Addition
Vancouver, British Columbia-2010 Winter Olympics
The Hold Bag Screening Expansion (HBS) + Level 3/4 Domestic Terminal Expansion represents a key strategic expansion element of Vancouver International Airports 20 year master plan. The Hold Bag Screening expansion brought the airport into elevated compliance with CATSA standards for airport security. The project entailed a complete overhaul of the baggage system through a design-build process with system manufacturers, integrating new CTX scanners, significant upgrades to airport infrastructure including redundant power, seismic upgrades, fire suppression, and mechanical systems.
The Level 3 / 4 Expansion was an addition over the HBS effectively expanding the customer service amenities in the Domestic Terminal and providing expanded corporate airport offices.
Both these integrated projects were initiated to service the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. The Level 3/4 Expansion created a new sterile corridor connecting the Domestic Terminal to the International Terminal, a food court and airside observation area with an interpretive centre and increased public service amenities and retail.
