CONSTRUCTION OF $200 MILLION USAIR TERMINAL AT NEW YORK'S LAGUARDIA
 AIRPORT COMPLETED BY MORSE DIESEL INTERNATIONAL
 NEW YORK, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Morse Diesel International, a leading construction management and consulting firm, today announced the opening of the new $200 million USAir terminal at LaGuardia Airport in New York.
 The largest unit airline terminal to be built at LaGuardia Airport in recent years, the new USAir terminal is one of the few buildings at a Port Authority site to be designed to Seismic Zone 2 requirements, construction standards relating to earthquake conditions, soon to be adopted into New York City Building Code.
 The new terminal has 12 gates and is connected to the adjacent USAir Shuttle building at the first and second levels with common frontage for a total of 20 gates and approximately 400,000 square feet.
 "There were a number of construction challenges to be overcome in the successful two-year completion of the terminal, while minimizing the disruption of the Airport's normal operations" said John Cavanagh, executive director, Morse Diesel. During the foundation work, Morse Diesel supervised the driving of 1,900 piles (180 feet in length) to bedrock, to compensate for poor soil conditions and prevent the structure from settling.
 Morse Diesel completed the construction of a temporary maintenance facility for ground service vehicles and relocated an existing taxiway and service roads to the new terminal.
 The heating and cooling system chosen for the terminal is designed to be more energy efficient, resulting in lower energy costs to USAir.
 William Nicholas Bodouva and Associates in New York, the project architect, designed a unique aluminum and glass curtain wall exterior for the terminal, which features a dramatic 40-foot by 500-foot main lobby atrium with sloped skylights on the departures level.
 USAir services the following cities nonstop from LaGuardia: Burlington, Albany, Syracuse, Binghamton, Rochester, Ithaca, Buffalo, State College, Cleveland, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Dayton, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Louisville, New Orleans, Tampa, Ft. Meyers, Portland, Manchester, Boston, Bermuda, Worcester, Providence, Groton/New London, Hartford, Newburgh, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Atlantic City, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Charlottesville; Richmond, Norfolk, Raleigh/Durham, Greensboro, Charlotte, Greenville/Spartanburg, Charleston S.C., Jacksonville, Orlando, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami.
