Abstract:

Travelers using Toronto's Pearson International Airport will soon be passing through a new, state-of-the-art terminal, the centerpiece of a 10-year airport redevelopment project. Contractors erected the building using a top-down construction method that had far-reaching implications for the engineering design. The terminal's footage roads also featured an innovative large-scale application of cast-in-place high performance concrete.
