SFO Terminal 2/Boarding Area D Renovation

In 2008, to accommodate growth in passenger traffic and airline demand for gates, San Francisco International Airport (SFO) embarked on a $383-million project to renovate Terminal 2 (T2) into a state-of-the-art domestic terminal, converting it from its original 10 gates to 14 gates and fully renewing the Boarding Area D facilities for a 40-year useful life. The airport opted to use the design-build delivery method on this fast-track, 30-month program, and engaged a construction management team to work with the airport’s project management staff and the design-builder in an integrated team. This project also served as the genesis for SFO’s development of guiding principles for sustainability as well as for Revenue Enhancement and Customer Hospitality (REACH), which now drive all projects. The fully renovated 575,000-square-foot T2 facility was certified LEED® Gold, making it the country’s first airport terminal to achieve that status.

Services Provided: The Allen Group provided a full range of construction management services throughout the life of the project, including stakeholder coordination, design management, programming, constructability reviews, scheduling and cost control, contract packaging, quality control/quality assurance, monitoring construction progress and schedules, evaluating progress payments, preparation of daily/monthly/quarterly reports, monitoring safety programs, coordinating project activation, and project closeout.
