Despite the fact that the project involved work in critical areas of the facility, close coordination with the Building Owner, Air Carrier user groups and contractors, allowed the project team to successfully complete the project without interrupting the airport's necessary ongoing functions.
Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport Baggage Claim Renovation
The project at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport encompassed upgrades to the existing baggage claim building and replacement of baggage handling systems. Since the baggage claim building was originally constructed in 1953 with additions completed in 1976 and 1979, improvements and modernization of existing facilities systems were required. Cotter was part of the construction management team that completed the upgrades to the facility. Substantial structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing upgrades were made to the building as well as the renovation of the entire lower level and replacement of five inbound baggage conveyors in the basement and five associated carousels on the first floor.
As the onsite project engineer, Cotter’s tasks included day-to-day construction project management, quality assurance, and recommended cost and schedule solutions.
