SFO Terminal 1 Boarding Area B
San Francisco, CA
Airport Commission of City & County of San Francisco
The new T1 BAB is a design-build 500,000 sf boarding area to accommodate a total of 24 gates. The project includes a new Boarding Area B with gate boarding and seating areas, concessions and passenger amenities, reconfiguration of airside systems for new gates, back-of-house and support spaces, and a new baggage handling system. Additionally, the project required temporary measures to be implemented to allow for the remaining terminals to be operational 24/7.
The BAB program includes designing a robust, redundant, and newly defined IT Network, extension of the campus wide security system in addition to a native Bacnet BMS system. The newly defined IT Network includes, but is not limited to, high density WiFi in addition to configuration of the ICS network, SFO Net, and the SLAN(Campus Security). Each one of these networks is being incorporated into their respective disciplines for the purpose of proper network transfer of the various systems such as Video Surveillance, BMS, Passenger Boarding Bridge monitoring, and Dynamic Glazing. T1 BAB is at the forefront of deploying these newly defined network configurations as the ICS Network, High Density WiFi, and configuration of the EMCS compliant BMS are all new to SFO. Additionally, each one of these elements of the network is critical to the function of the Net Zero goal of T1 BAB and SFO as a whole.
