Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport – Air Cargo Building

As part of the Hartsfield Support Services Team (HSST) team, Heery was contracted to provide comprehensive design and construction administration services for a new, 128,000 SF Air Cargo building.  The facility included a single story warehouse, a two-story office core and a two-story DOA ramp operations center.  Heery provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and structural engineering. 

The project’s design is based on previous cargo building concepts modified to achieve 1) LEED Silver Certification, 2) unobstructed 270° view of ramp operations from the ramp operation center and 3) construction cost reduction through a more efficient roof truss system that lowered the overall building height. 

Additional components of this project include:

  • Structural design that accommodates 180’ interior clear spans
  • Packaged DX roof top air handler system with gas pre-heat and electric reheat at VAV terminal boxes
  • New 200 a, 480/270 Volt Georgia Power Electrical service
  • Energy efficient high bay florescent lighting
  • Exterior 1000 watt HPS apron flood lighting
  • Low flow water and energy conservation plumbing fixtures
  • NFPA 13 compliant wet and dry fire suppression system
