Clark/McCarthy, A Joint Venture Rendering

Clark/McCarthy, A Joint Venture, was awarded the design-build contract to replace the airport’s central utility plant (CUP).

The project will provide LAX with a new, 75,000 square-foot CUP with a 20,000-ton cooling capacity. Clark/McCarthy also will install replacement utility distribution piping, electrical and communications duct banks, reclaimed water, fire water, and potable water piping to all terminals at LAX. The existing CUP will service the airport throughout construction. Upon completion, the replacement will be brought on line and the existing central utility plant will be decommissioned and demolished. 

Systems and their components will be designed and constructed to achieve LEED® Silver certification. 

Design will begin in January 2011 and the new CUP is expected to be complete in summer 2014.

Arup of Los Angeles is the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural, civil and commissioning engineer. Gruen Associates of Los Angeles is the architect. Additional project partners include Capital Engineering Consultants, Rancho Cordova, Calif., mechanical consultant; Greenform, Los Angeles, sustainability consultant; and PID Engineering, San Diego, cogeneration consultant.
