LaGuardia Airport Redevelopment

LaGuardia Airport Redevelopment

The comprehensive $8 billion redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport has reached its latest milestone with the opening of the new Terminal B Skyway Bridge!

Concourse B

LaGuardia Airport RedevelopmentThe 430 ft. long by 97 ft. high Terminal B pedestrian walkway strategically spans over an operational taxiway. Travelers experience planes passing underneath through this innovative aviation design that increases LGA’s runway space by 50%. McLaren provided structural calculations for the design of its glass facade anchors, including dead load brackets and the connections to the building steel.

The Building Envelope team also brought their glass and glazing expertise to another component of LaGuardia’s modernization – the Concourse B facade system. We provided structural design and thermal / condensation analysis for the custom glass wall comprised of laser-fusion welded steel mullions and a custom glazed cassette panel system.


Outside, our Marine Division also supported a different aspect of LGA’s revamp through a complex condition survey and assessment of the airport’s runway extension and the Bowery Bay bulkhead. To identify any potential structural and non-structural deficiencies, our team of marine engineers and PE divers performed above and underwater inspections.
