The Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) Expansion at Los Angeles International Airport is, even years after its completion, still garnering attention. Selected by an international jury of top designers, architects, curators and academics, the project was named the winning Transportation category project of The Plan Award 2019. The award aims to disseminate knowledge of and improve the quality of work done by designers globally.
TBIT is the largest public works project in Los Angeles’s history, requiring close collaboration with the community and among the team, which included JAMA as structural engineer alongside Fentress Architects. The 1.2 million square foot project achieved LEED Gold certification and continues to be a gold-standard in aviation design, in part for its non-orthogonal structural components that JAMA cleared with the City of Los Angeles through extensive testing.
