DFW Airport Reached Its Design Destination in Record Time
The DFW Skylink Automated People Mover System connects all six DFW International Airport terminal areas to shuttle air travelers between terminals quickly. The elevated system extends approximately five miles in length and is routed directly above aircraft parking positions in the terminal areas.
Freese and Nichols, as part of a multi-consultant team and sub to Brown & Root, Inc., provided design and inspection services for this $864-million fast-track project. FNI supplied key design team members for structural, civil, mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as inspectors to expedite construction. Typically, the design of a project this size would take at least 30 months. The majority of the Skylink project was designed in only 11 months.
The completed Skylink received the prestigious Judges Award for Design as part of the Texas Construction Best of 2004 Awards from Texas Construction Magazine.
