Ardmore Roderick was part of the team executing the construction of the $2.5B Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) South Terminal C expansion as part of an overall capital improvement master plan to add capacity to the Orlando International Airport, which is the second busiest airport in the United States. The project included a world-class domestic and international airport terminal building, consisting of an airside terminal with 16 to 24 airline gates and a landside terminal with both secure and non-secure areas.

The Landside Terminal (LST) Building is a five-level passenger processing building with a baggage conveyance basement connecting to the Ground Transportation Facility (GTF) for baggage and service transfer. An enclosed bridge crosses the terminal roadways, providing a pedestrian connection to the GTF and the Phase 1 Parking Garage.

The Ground Transportation Facility is a two phased construction, two-story building that will support the various programmatic functions of the Landside Terminal Building that includes an estimated 240,000 GSF for the final configuration. It serves as a connecting hub to the Parking Garage and the Intermodal Terminal Facility (ITF). An enclosed pedestrian bridge with a baggage conveyance basement connects the landside terminal building to the GTF, and a similar pedestrian bridge connects the GTF to the ITF.

The Parking Garage expansion is 808,000 SF for Phase 2 and Phase 3 will consist of adding an additional 2,400 spaces to the existing 2,600 space garage. The 6-level expansion is located immediately north of the current 6-level garage and includes new vertical circulation elevator cores located between the new and existing garages and at the southwest corner of the existing garage, additional outboard exit stairs, provisions for future moving sidewalks along the western edge of the new expansion and existing garage, and several IDF rooms to support GOAA and vendor networks.
