Our knowledge of the MAC campus helped to make this intricate project a success. The program’s main goals are to update the infrastructure, circulation, aesthetics, and technology at the heart of Terminal 1. The program is split into at least twenty separate phases over 10 years, to maintain the 24/7 operation of MSP International without disruption.

Some of the Mechanical and Electrical systems affected in this program were original to the building, over 55 years old. With their replacement, MCE’s design had to account for major code changes, maintenance requirements, sustainability, and resiliency. We coordinate with all stakeholders, including MAC, airlines and tenants, to ensure that all needs and expectations are being met.
