anybody been inside. Does it feel wide enough? Wide enough for some kiosks down the middle? I remember width of the coordiors was a concern for some. It SEEMS wide enough especially for KCI level traffic.

Check some of the other construction pics, I think it had workers standing there, helps you get a scale of the area

You know, you're absolutely right. Let me take of my rose-tinted glasses and put on my shit-tinted ones.

There’s going to be one outside. They couldn’t have one placed inside directly above the baggage handling system, as you can imagine leaks above a system like that aren’t helpful.

They said fountain drinks man, fountain drinks. Always read the fine print.

I know there's a lot to get done, but man there doesn't look like a year of work left in here.

Has there been any more talk of moving Southwest over early?

Monthly project update on their website just says on schedule.




Weather Days: Prior to November, Clark | Weitz | Clarkson (CWC) expended the allotted 60 workdays anticipated for the New Terminal weather impacts. During November, CWC expended zero (0) total weather days for the New Terminal; zero (0) weather days for the Parking Garage, and one (1) days for the airside civil scope. There are seven (7) remaining weather days for the airside civil scope.

Schedule Critical Path: As of the end of November, completion of the interior fit-out in the headhouse continues to be the main emphasis for the critical path. Completion of the interior fit-out includes installation of drywall, ceiling, and terrazzo flooring. These dust-producing items are to be completed prior to commissioning and testing of the HVAC equipment. Completion of the airside paving scope remains critical to ensure pavement is ready for Passenger Boarding Bridge installation, which will start in March 2022.

Lot of systems test that has to be done before it opens. Much more than and office building.

Is baggage even complete yet? From what I’ve seen from other projects, that’s the really time consuming aspect
