Support Facilities

Support facilities are critical to ATL’s daily operation, but often go unnoticed by passengers. Upgrades include revitalizing the fire station and maintenance complex, relocating and updating the staging areas for commercial vehicles and taxis, and consolidating and relocating maintenance facilities in anticipation of the new 6th runway and Concourse G.

Overview

The replacement of Fire Station 40 will take place early in the program, with the new LEED-certified facility due to be operational in 2018. ATL will also undertake a project to relocate and update the staging locations for the commercial vehicles and taxis that service the airport. The Gate Gourmet and Delta Air Lines cargo operation will also be relocated. These changes will reduce congestion on the roadways and improve customer service.

Project Timeline

Work on the replacement of Fire Station 40 is underway, with an expected completion date of 2018. Additional phases for new and relocated facilities will continue for the next decade.

  • Fire station #40: 2017-2018
  • Building renewal/replacement: 2016-2035
  • Airport maintenance complex consolidation: 2022-2027

Benefits

The on-site fire stations provide daily life safety services and are essential for maintaining the airport’s operating certificates. Updates to these facilities are necessary to account for anticipated operational growth in the coming decades.

Impacts During Construction

Most of the updates to support facilities will have minimal impact on the average passenger at ATL. Support operations will continue during the construction phases, and support facilities stakeholders will be advised of any disruption to schedules and services during the process.
