Los Angeles World Airport
Griffith Company partnered with Myers & Sons Construction to deliver the Utility and Landside Access Modernization Program Enabling Project (LULEP) in partnership with Los Angeles World Airports. The team successfully completed 38 different projects over three years, with a combined value of $300 million. LULEP was integral in preparing the Central Terminal Area (CTA), as well as several surrounding roadways and project sites, for construction of the Automated People Mover (APM), Consolidated Rent-A-Car (ConRAC) facility, Intermodal Transportation Facilities (ITF), and new roadways.
Each of the projects delivered under LULEP was developed under a Construction Guaranteed Maximum Price (CGMP) and set of Task Orders. The progressive design-build nature of the project required close coordination of the MGJV team, LAWA, and more than 25 city agencies and stakeholders. The key components of the project included professional services for field survey, geotechnical investigations, and utility investigations; utility relocations of water, sewer, storm drain, gas, and electrical systems; and roadway improvements, including roadway widenings, parking lot expansions, and modifications of the I-405 ramps.
Key projects completed included underground duct bank relocations and installations, which will help power the new facilities, as well as the relocation of Avis and the Metro City Bus Plaza, which was needed to start construction of LAX’s new mobility hub –the Intermodal Transportation Facility –West. LULEP also built the shoofly on Aviation Boulevard, which helps maintainthrough traffic between Century Boulevard and Arbor Vitae Street during heavy construction of the APM system.
