The ground-level retail space lines Hank Aaron Drive and features a mix of restaurants and service providers.

Concourse T-North Extension at HJAIA
The Concourse T North Extension provides five new gates to the north end of Concourse T at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Prior to extending T Concourse, the team completed an extensive enabling package that included re-routing North Terminal Parkway through the North Economy Parking lots, and re-routing the main Georgia Power ductbank and fiber communication network to align with the new roadways. Additionally, the North entry and exit toll plazas were upgraded and rebuilt along with creating a new Transportation Network Company drop-off and pickup area within the newly designed parking lots. The new extension displaced Delta’s Ground Support Equipment building and Fire Station 32, where sitework for the Delta GSE and reconstruction of Fire Station 32 were also provided under this contract. Other major sitework included relocation of 24” and 30” City of Atlanta water mains and installation of 20” concrete apron paving to service the new gates.
This project was completed as a quad-venture by SNFS.

Central Passenger Terminal Complex,
Landside Modernization at HJAIA
New South and Synergy were part of the Joint Venture team, NSMS, who completed the Central Passenger Terminal Complex's Landside Modernization (LMOD) at HJAIA. The purpose of this project was to renovate, upgrade, and modernize the exterior and interior of the public-facing domestic facilities.
The LMOD project involved updating the domestic terminals by constructing two massive structural steel canopies and completely transforming the building’s facades. The canopies, which span the north and south terminal roadways, measure 864’ long x 200’ wide and are covered by inflatable ETFE fabric pillows. Each HSS structure, ranging from 14”-20” diameter, consists of 19 “supertrusses” which are connected by a total of 198 x-shaped diagrid members. The structures are covered by semi-transparent ETFE pillows that are constantly inflated by blowers on the roof of the terminal. In addition to the new canopies, construction of the new facades included the complete demolition of the existing entryways and the construction of a new curtain wall, sliding doors, and metal paneled “mini-canopies” at each entrance. Additionally, the full exterior façade of the terminal was re-skinned with metal panels, new storefront clerestories, and glass panels.

South Security Checkpoint Expansion at HJAIA
The most utilized security screening checkpoint at the world's most traveled airport was recently expanded by New South-Synergy, A Joint Venture.
In addition to increasing the number of security lanes available, the project installed eight new CT scanners which are a first for airport security screening. This new technology is still in its trial phase and with that cam numerous construction challenges for the project team. In addition to working in an active airport, the project team had to contract, coordinate, and install technology that is still in development and never before used at an airport facility.
Evolving equipment and project requirements, local and federal agency approvals, international travel restrictions during the height of COVID-19, TSA authorizations, unforeseen conditions, and more had to be overcome to deliver this project ahead of schedule and under budget. All of which occurred while maintaining the passenger experience and without impact to operations or security screening.
A380, Gate F3 Reconfiguration at HJAIA
This reconfiguration allows for an A380 aircraft (Group 6) to be accommodated on the new Concourse F. At the time of construction, no gate on Concourse F could accommodate the A380, and it was the desire of the Department of Aviation (DOA) to have the ability to have a Group 6 aircraft gated on Concourse F. Gate F3 was chosen as the best location; however, both the terminal and air-side areas required improvements. The air-side improvements to Gate F3 included an addition of a second loading bridge and relocation of the aircraft lead-in line.
Concourse improvements included a new vertical transportation core and tie-in to the CBP sterile corridor, additional millwork for the new bridge, and extension of the concourse level sterile corridor to tie-in to the new vertical transportation core. The vertical transportation core included a stairway, elevator, and an escalator.
The 13,000-square-foot branch library for Fulton County was constructed with a steel frame on concrete foundations. The exterior walls received cement-fiber composite board siding, and the roof was constructed with metal roof panels and TPO. The majority of the library interior work was architectural casework and millwork due to the excess amount of shelving, cabinets, openings, and seating. More than half of the total square footage of the flooring is access panel flooring with underfloor HVAC and electrical distribution.
This project is LEED Silver certified.
