The Air Cargo C Building furthers Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s mission to increase cargo traffic and drive economic development and jobs creation.The project completes the South Cargo Facility complex and is identical to three existing facilities in the complex. At 130,431 square feet, the two-story building includes a high-bay central cargo operations area with no interior columns. Support spaces are on a partial second floor. Truck staging and parking areas are also included.
Due to the close proximity of the building to the aircraft operations area (AOA), JE Dunn utilized asphalt spray mulching during the site work phases of the project. This practice, as opposed to hay, as is normally used, prevented the risk of materials blowing onto the tarmac and entering an airplane’s engine.
As with all projects at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, a high level of coordination took place to ensure a safe and disturbance-free construction process. As part of the project, SIDA fencing required relocation. JE Dunn closely coordinated this process with the TSA. Precast installation along the back side of the building also required a similar degree of coordination due to the necessity of working in the AOA for this portion of the project.
The project was also closely coordinated with the activities of Cargo Building D. Tenants were notified of any upcoming utility interruptions and their schedules were accommodated accordingly.
