American Airlines Terminals had undergone phased construction extension at JFK Airport in New York. The scope of work undertook by Potential Engineering PC in the process was the design development of shop drawings for a sixty (60) feet high temporary wall and framing for mezzanine area.
The temporary wall was part of a phased construction. Subsequently, the wall remained and became permanent. The mezzanine framing consisted of light gauge material with elaborate built-up columns.
The modeled truss wall, sub-framing, and wall panels including connections/attachments were designed and analyzed to meet NYC Building Code and American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) requirements including buckling analysis.
The construction support services included the preparation of detailed shop drawings and performing special inspections to ensure proper execution of the intended design and construction.
