June 15, 2021

(LOS ANGELES, CA) The Turner Construction Company and PCL Construction joint venture team recently participated in the grand opening ceremony of the new West Gates at Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport. 

The completion of the terminal represents a major milestone for the City of Los Angeles and the entire region, serving as a gateway and a point of connection for members of the community. After more than a year of unprecedented challenges, the opening of the terminal signals that Los Angles is prepared to welcome visitors and is open for business. 

"We are proud of our work on the West Gates at Tom Bradley and the impact it has on the community, which supported the 9,000 trade workers who made the project a reality," said Rory DeJohn, Senior Vice President of Turner Construction Company and Managing Partner of the Turner/PCL joint venture. “This new facility will play an important role supporting economic growth as well as reflect the vibrancy and diversity of Los Angeles.”

The modern terminal includes the latest technology, a checked-bag storage system, biometric boarding gates and the latest amenities for travelers visiting, living, and working in the region, including two nursing rooms, a service-animal relief area, art exhibitions, a quiet room and three children's play areas. Sustainable and efficient features can be found throughout the terminal that will conserve energy and water use. 

"This is the first mega-project at LAX under the leadership and vision of Mayor Garcetti, working with our City Council and our Board, to build a world-class airport – one that will redefine our airport experience," said Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive Officer, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA). "We are delivering fully modernized terminals, new technology and guest services, and improved connections to our regional transportation system and investing in infrastructure that creates a more resilient airport and an even stronger economic engine for Los Angeles."

In addition to the completion of the five-level, 15-gate, 750,000-square-foot terminal, the team completed more than 1.5-million-square-feet-of new aircraft apron and taxiways/taxilanes, as well as new underground utility improvements.
