Cornerstone provided planning and design services using computer aided design and drafting (CADD) and building information modeling systems to support the Design-Build teams with defined work scopes to inform and expedite the programming, design and construction phases in early 2016. As a key team member of the project planning team we assisted in the development of a set of construction documents and a comprehensive database comprising all portal and alarm data. The plans and included all related telecommunications components, doors, doorframes and hardware. This collected information will streamline the process to begin the complete migration from the two currently operating systems into one cohesive system being deployed throughout the Airport over next three to four years. Cornerstone contribution to the project team will provide SFIA a comprehensive assessment of their overall capability of their security infrastructure systems and compliance with Federal Aviation Administration’s 21st century requirements.
