The Scope of this project was a major renovation of Terminal 3 Boarding Area E converted into a stylish and sophisticated state-of-the-art facility that offers 10 gates for United Airlines. The $138 million renovations of Boarding Area E were part of a capital program to renovate SFO’s Terminal 3 East (T3E), which included the 68,800-square foot Boarding Area E and the 150,000-square foot eastern concourse connecting to Boarding Area F. This included the relocation of one (1) gate from Terminal 3 on to Boarding Area E to provide a total of ten (10) aircraft parking positions. The Aircraft mix programming was provided to the Design Team by the SFO Planning Department. The scope included complete demolition of the existing interior architecture, exterior cladding, complete infrastructure, and one (1) elevator that will travel between the apron and departure levels. The project was completed and started generating revenue in 2014. Boarding Area E is certified as Gold LEED.
