Greater Orlando Aviation Authority


RTM provided all plumbing engineering and fire alarm design for the early phase work of the new South Terminal WS110 program at Orlando International Airport, and will also be responsible for the construction administration of the completed design work. The building will include an inter-modal transportation facility for the sun-rail train line, a 2,400-car parking garage, a CEP plant, and an automated people mover.

This project utilized energy-conserving plumbing fixtures through the implementation of automatic-wired fixtures to be used for LEED credits. The sanitary systems were designed and coordinated with the civil engineer to accommodate the overall program for the project. The domestic water system included all copper piping and water heaters for the public restrooms using the GOAA standard of “flow through” water system design. The storm water system was designed to direct roof drainage to exterior storm structures. Fire alarm systems were designed for the facility with GOAA standards. The systems were integrated and connected to the north terminal fire command center.
