Morse Diesel completes USAir terminal at LGA.

Morse Diesel International, a construction managers and consultants, 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 approximately 400,000 square feet.

As part of the project, 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 a natural gas-fire chiller/boiler configuration that is more energy efficient, resulting in substantial savings to USAir.

William Nicholas Bodouva & Associates in New York was the project architect.
