Terminal Cores & APM Interface Project - T5.5 Core
Airports & Ports Project
The T5.5 Core Project at LAX Terminal 6 supports the City of LA and LAWA’s vision of enhancing the overall passenger experience at the Airport. This newly constructed five-level program, totaling 131,260 square feet aims to improve passenger flow and address functional issues within the airport. Work includes Terminal retrofit to accommodate the new construction and temporary relocations or Terminal functional operations and tenants, while maintaining airport and airline operations.
The T5.5 Project is organized vertically, incorporating escalators, elevators, ramps, and stairs. One significant addition is the Automatic People Mover (APM) Level, which enables the APM pedestrian bridge, passenger Security Screening Check-Point, and aircraft gates to be located on the same floor level. This design feature allows departing and arriving passengers with pre-printed boarding passes and carry-on bags to avoid level changes within the terminal, bypass ticket lobbies, and bag claim, resulting in a better passenger experience.
