Newark Liberty International Airport - Terminal A Expansion and Modernization Program

Green, High-Performance Airport Terminal prototype

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey assembled a team of experts in architecture, planning, engineering and environmental design with the goal of developing an integrated design process to reduce the environmental impact of Newark’s Terminal A Modernization & Expansion Program while simultaneously improving user experience, airport operations, and creating an affordable landmark transportation hub for the 21st century. In addition, the team explored how the project could meet the PANYNJ’s aggressive carbon reduction targets, including carbon neutral operations by 2010 through a variety of operational improvements, upstream infrastructure integration, new capital investments, and the purchase of carbon offsets. Based on a thorough understanding of Newark Airport’s existing conditions the team developed, tested, and analyzed specific sustainable strategies from a life cycle perspectives and developed client agreement through a series of integrated design workshops. A number of promising high-performance strategies were identified in this process including:

  • Identifying upstream infrastructure carbon and energy saving opportunities.
  • Developing natural ventilation and mixed-mode conditioning strategies.
  • Reducing the overall terminal footprint and associated structure.
  • Testing high-performance envelope options to maximize daylight; minimize solar gains and seasonal heat loss.
  • Identifying opportunities for water conservation, rainwater harvesting and re-use opportunities for major non-potable consumption.
