Chicago's O'Hare Airport is one of the busiest in the world. A new terminal has been added to better serve its customers.

On behalf of the City of Chicago, STS Consultants Ltd. retained GHD to perform monitoring and quality control testing for the fabrication the steel metallic structural frame for the new terminal. This mandate included the quality control of materials, as well as the clearance and supervision of all the processes of surface preparation (cleaning, sandblasting) and conditions of application (temperature, humidity) procedures of the protective paint coating of the structure. Testing conducted in the manufacturing plant allowed for quality control of the anti-corrosion protection.

A procedure for tracking and approval of the metal structural frame was established within this project mandate. This allowed the delivery of a high quality product without compromising the strict project schedule.
