Sky Harbor Sky Train – T3 update
The Sky Train at Sky Harbor International Airport will soon be arriving to Terminal 3! Rural Electric, Inc. has been selected by McCarthy-Kiewit JV to provide the electrical installation for Stage 1A GMP 4. This project started in May 2013 and consisted of many overnight shifts to complete a numerous amount of different power outages and cutovers to this very busy airport.
We were contracted to complete the Grand Hallway at Terminal 3 from the Connector Bridge at Sky Harbor Boulevard and extend into Terminal 3 which allows passengers to easily navigate to their gates. In order for this Grand Hallway to be built we needed to relocate a large portion of the existing kitchen to Bowtie’s Restaurant. Working many overnight shifts when the restaurant was not occupied allowed us to relocate Distribution Panels, Transformers, Panel boards, Lighting Control Systems and Light Fixtures. Once the kitchen was relocated we were able to begin working on the Grand Hallway which included over 100 recessed LED fixtures, low-voltage string lights and architectural fixtures.
Another scope of our work was to extend an outdoor walkway from the Terminal 3 Sky Train Station to Terminal 2 which would allow passengers to connects to their gates. This installation included exterior wall packs, under canopy fluorescent fixtures, architectural sign lighting and security systems.
Our team which consisted of John Colonna (PM), Jaxon Kelley (PE) and Erick Flores (Foreman) has kept this project on schedule and under budget. We continue to build powerful connections with McCarthy–Kiewit JV, City of Phoenix and Gannett Fleming.
