City of Chicago Department of Aviation O’Hare Modernization Program ORD 21
Ardmore Roderick teamed up with Jacobs Engineering Group to form the Connect Chicago Alliance (CCA) joint venture and were selected to manage the $8.5 Billion dollar O’Hare 21 Terminal Area Plan (TAP) Program over a period of 12 years.
Major program elements include elimination of the central basin and expansion of the existing south basin for storm water collection and detention, a project which will include a 16′ diameter deep tunnel conveyance system in the bedrock beneath the airfield. The program also includes new satellite concourses S1, S2 and the new O’Hare Global Terminal (OGT) – modernizing and expanding the capacities of the existing gates and terminals for the airport. The program also includes modernization and expansion of international terminal 5, and the re-purposing of terminal 5 to become a mixed use terminal in the future. In addition, all of the planned Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) for the maintenance, upkeep and modernization of the existing terminal and airfield components will also be managed by this team.
The CCA team is also tasked with managing all of the capital improvement projects at Midway Airport. A smaller joint venture team, led by Ardmore Roderick was tasked with managing all of the ongoing and new work at Midway. This includes expansion of the security bridge over Cicero Avenue, and the expansion of the short term parking garage over the existing CTA yard. Our team is working collaboratively with the Midway team to deliver these important projects.
