LaGuardia Airport to smarten up

A major redevelopment and construction project is designed to completely transform New York's LaGuardia Airport into a world-class transportation hub that will more easily serve the tens of millions of travellers that pass through the airport each year. Siemens Building Technologies Division is working with Skanska Walsh Joint Venture, the design-build contractor for the redevelopment of Central Terminal B, to deploy a Siemens intelligent infrastructure solution that includes an integrated building automation and fire/life safety system for the new central terminal complex.
 

The new Terminal B will be far more efficient and safer than its predecessor built in 1964. Siemens' Desigo CC integrated building management platform will monitor the building automation, allowing for dynamic control of the facility's systems in order to respond to the changing needs of the terminal's operations. The Desigo Fire XLS-V fire alarm panel with voice capability will be at the heart of the fire alarm system, operating both in Terminal B and the central plant.

The new terminal complex will be located closer to the existing Grand Central Parkway, freeing up valuable tarmac space for planes. It will also utilize an island-gate system, which will create nearly two miles of additional taxiways and lead to fewer gate delays and less carbon emissions from idling planes.
"We're extremely proud to play such a key role in modernizing LaGuardia Airport – and in helping create the perfect place to travel efficiently and safely," says Dave Hopping, president of the Building Technologies Division at Siemens North America.
