Photo of the Week: Column Campaign

There’s a major campaign underway at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. It’s a column campaign. The Airport is in the final year of its $70 million Airport Experience Program. The program’s renovations are producing a major interior transformation of Terminal 1 and its connected concourses. The clean and modern feel of the Airport’s renovated spaces include higher ceilings and brighter lights. To finish off the look, all structural columns are getting a makeover, too. More than 115 column covers, made of a plastic and metal composite material, are being installed as the renovation progresses through Terminal 1.

Photo of the Week: Hoist!

A flight takes off from Lambert as crews hoist a new flag pole into place in front of Terminal 1.

All flags on duty. That was the call this week after crews finished the installation of two new 72-ft flag poles in front of Terminal 1 at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. The original poles were damaged during the 2011 spring tornado. Crews connected the sections of the poles and installed the hoisting gear on site before a crane did the heavy lifting. Since that tornado, the American flag has been flying solo. Now the Airport is once again flying four flags with return of the Missouri state flag, City of St. Louis flag and the Airport flag.

Video Walls Install

Crews are starting to install the next generation of display screens on the west flight display tower in Lambert’s Terminal 1 Ticketing Lobby.

Do the math: 7x4x4. Those are the numbers behind the major monitor upgrade for Lambert’s two flight display towers in the Terminal 1 Ticketing Lobby. The break down: Seven monitors across, four monitors high, and two sides per tower. It all adds up to 112 new 46" LCD monitors, which will create four seamless video walls for flight and airport information. The upgrade means swapping out projector screens with bulbs for more energy efficient flat screens with LED imaging technology. The video walls will be brighter and easier to read. The project will be completed within the next several weeks.

A rooftop view gives the best perspective to a massive project underway to reconstruct a major portion of Runway 12R-30L. For weeks now, contractors have been chipping away at the decades old runway in preparation for a new concrete base that needs to handle hundreds of aircraft landings and takeoffs each day. In the forefront, is a massive hill built from the remnants of the former runway. The old concrete is crushed for reuse as a base for the new runway. The project will be completed by late fall.
