Dear Commissioner DeMent: Chicago- O'Hare International Airport 

Engineering Report - First Stage 
Development Program 

Pursuant to the terms of our agreement dated March 1, 1957, we are presenting here- 
with our Engineering Report covering the first stage development of facilities at O'Hare 
Airport. This report develops engineering and cost data required to support the sale of 
revenue bonds to provide funds for construction of these facilities. 

Included in the report, in addition to a description, outline specification and cost 
estimate for each major item of construction, are plan and perspective drawings which 
delineate the location, character and extent of the proposed facilities. 

In general, the development program Is planned to meet traffic estimates for the year 
1965. Airline spaces provided in the terminal buildings and cargo buildings correspond 
directly to written requests from the airlines. Sites for hangars in the Hangar Area also 
correspond to airline requests. Spaces in the terminal buildings reserved for concessions, 
as well as paid parking facilities and sites for an automobile service station, an air mail 
post office, flight kitchens, rent-a-car service facilities, and a motel are based on the 
recommendations of Landrum and Brown, airport consultants of Cincinnati, Ohio. 

The design of the fueling system, together with the cost estimates for this facility, were 
prepared by James P. O'Donnell, fueling consultant of New York City, in accordance 
with recommendations from the Airline Technical Committee. 

Cost estimates for construction of all of the proposed facilities are based on current unit 
prices for the work involved, adjusted In several cases for increases anticipated prior ^ 
to the estimated date of construction. No costs have been included for land acquisition l 
since all of the land required for the proposed construction has already been acquired by 
the City and acquisition costs of the additional land required to complete the approved 
airport boundary have been authorized from existing general obligation bond funds of 
the City of Chicago.

The proposed development program has been planned in close cooperation with our 
consultants, the Airline Technical Committee, the Technical Development Center 
of the Civil Aeronautics Administration and the Bureau of Aviation of the City of 
Chicago. 



We believe that the first stage development program as outlined in this report can | 
be completed and placed in operation within 33 months from the date that funds i|| 



are available from the revenue bond issue.

I INTRODUCTION 



I. INTRODUCTION 

History: O'Hare Airport, as it exists today, had its beginning in planning 
studies initiated in the early 1940's by several civic organizations. In 1945 the 
City Council approved the site recommended by the Airport Site Selection Board. 
This site was the Douglas Airport constructed by the Federal Government during 
World War II in connection with an aircraft factory leased to the Douglas Aircraft 
Company. 

In 1946 the War Assets Corporation, having declared the Douglas Airport 
as surplus, gave the City a quit-claim deed to 1,080 acres of the property. Planning 
was then begun to develop the site as an airport for civil aviation. 

In May 1955, the City reached agreement with 17 airlines for landing and 
rental fees at the airport. The City Council approved this agreement in October of 
that year and in the same month the airport was opened for commercial use. 

By this time the City had renamed the airport O'Hare, had acquired additional 
land and had constructed several improvements. These include a new runway, a taxi- 
way, a segment of a proposed terminal building, a control tower, an aircraft parking 
apron, a heating plant and an automobile parking lot. Before the construction of 
the new runway a five mile section of Chicago and Northwestern Railroad track was 
relocated to pass around the western boundary of the airport. 

In March 1956, the City Council annexed O'Hare Airport and a highway corri- 
dor connecting it with the City proper. Simultaneously agreement was reached between City, 



-2- 



County and State to construct the Northwest Expressway, a free facility, from the 
Chicago Loop to the boundary of the airport. This expressway is currently under 
construction and is expected to be completed by mid 1960. It will connect with the 
tollway and expressway system serving the Metropolitan Area as shown in the ac- 
companying map. 

Airline traffic at O Hare has increased steadily since it was opened. How- 
ever, considering the increasing congestion at Midway Airport traffic at O 'Hare has 
not been as heavy as was expected. 

The reasons that the airlines have delayed in moving more of their, 
operations to O 1 Hare are principally economic. The airlines have large invest- 
ments in facilities at Midway and at present this airport is more accessible to the 
Chicago Loop. The airlines, therefore, have retained their principal flights at 
Midway and have been slow to develop an integrated pattern of interconnecting 
flights at O'Hare. 

This situation, however, is certain to be reversed in the near future. The 
reason for this is clear: large turbo-jet aircraft can operate only at O'Hare in 
Chicago. The main trunk air'ines beginning in 1956 have placed substantial orders 
for new large turbo-jet transports. Deliveries of these planes commenced in 
August 1958 and are scheduled for service in ever-increasing amounts beginning in 
January 1959. These aircraft cannot operate at Midway because of the limited run- 
way lengths available and, since it is not economically feasible to extend runways 
in this built-up area of the City, these aircraft must use O'Hare Airport where the 
runways are longer. 



-3- 



Once the main turbo-jet flights are operating at O'Hare the feeder lines 
also must move substantial supporting schedules to interconnect with these main 
trunk line flights. 

The change to be caused by the coming of turbo-jet aircraft became clearly 
apparent in 1957 and the airlines indicated a willingness to support a revenue bond 
issue which would finance the necessary development of O'Hare Airport for their use. 

In March of 1957, the City appointed the architectural-engineering firm of 
Naess & Murphy to review previous plans for O'Hare development in view of changes 
in airline planning . 

During the last eighteen months, the architects-engineers and their consultants, 
Landrum and Brown on airport planning and James P. O'Donnell on fuel storage and 
distribution, have carried foreword this study in close cooperation with the Bureau of 
Aviation of the City of Chicago, the Technical Development Center of the Civil 
Aeronautics Administration, and the Airline Technical Committee. 

Early in the course of this study Landrum and Brown made a statistical analysis 
of the traffic to be expected at O'Hare through the year 1970. From these estimates 
preliminary forecasts were established for the facilities that would be required. 

After extensive study the architects-engineers and their consultants concluded 
that the then existing master plan for O'Hare should be modified to better meet the 
conditions of jet age transportation. 



-4- 



Several different modified plans were prepared and discussed with the Airline 
Technical Committee and with City officials. In March 1958, agreement was reached 
on a new plan and formal approval was indicated to the City by the Airline Top 
Committee. 

An artist's rendering of this plan depicting the airport at its ultimate stage of 
development is shown in the accompanying photograph. This plan has served as the 
basis for all of the subsequent planning which has followed and, except for minor I 

changes, remains the basic plan for the airport. 

Following the adoption of this new plan by the City and the airlines, attention 
was devoted to the matter of staging construction to best meet airline needs and finan- 
cial capabilities. 

Preliminary cost estimates of construction prepared in March, at the time the ■> 
general plan was approved, were reviewed by the airlines with the architects-engineers. 
It was decided to defer some items until a later stage of construction and to reduce the 

r^ 

scope of others in an effort to bring initial costs within acceptable limits. 

Concurrently with these decisions the airlines took up the matter of allocating 
gate loading positions along the proposed concourse. It was necessary to resolve this 
matter before the airlines could determine their requirements for terminal building 
space and the architects could proceed with the development of the terminal building 
plans. 

The gate allocations were decided by the Airline Top Committee in May and 
by the middle of June the architects-engineers had received space requirement 



figures from most of the domestic airlines. At this point the architects-engineers 
began working with the airlines, either individually or in small related groups, in 
an effort to accommodate their requirements into plans for the buildings. This proved 
to be a difficult task because of considerable differences in requirements and in pro- 
posed methods of operation. 

In addition to airline spaces which were closely tailored to airline needs, the 
architects-engineers reserved other spaces for concessions and the needs of the general 
public. These spaces were based on the recommendations of Landrum and Brown which 
were developed from their extensive study of concessions and concession revenues at 
other major airports. 

Concurrently with this detail planning, the fuel consultant, James P. O'Donnell, 
prepared alternate systems for fuel storage and distribution. These were reviewed by 
the Airline Technical Committee and their recommendations were subsequently adopted 
by the Airline Top Committee. 

I By the end of September 1958, the major planning difficulties were resolved 

and the architects-engineers were able to prepare preliminary drafts of the airline 
lease exhibits and of the Engineering Report. 

These were circulated to City officials, the Airline Technical Committee and 
the feasibility engineers for their final review during the first week in October. The 
Engineering Report presented herewith has been modified slightly to reflect final 
recommendations and space requirement requests.

II. GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE FIRST STAGE PROGRAM 

The first stage development program for O'Hare Airport is designed to provide 
Chicago with greatly expanded airport facilities which will accommodate the new com- 
mercial jet airliners and the expanded volumes of passengers which they are expected 
to carry. 

Planning has been based on meeting needs for projected traffic as estimated by 
Landrum and Brown, airport consultants. The first stage development program has 
generally been based on meeting the traffic forecasts for the year 1965, at which time 
it is estimated there will be over five million passengers enplaned at O'Hare Airport. 

TERMINAL AREA 



Several different areas of the airport are scheduled either for expansion or en- 
tirely new development. The principal area of expansion will be the terminal area 
at the approximate center of the airport. An artist's rendering showing how this area 
will appear at the completion of first stage development is shown in the accompanying 
photograph. Additional sketches are also included which show close-up views of this 
area as well as some of the other areas scheduled to be developed. 

It is planned to increase terminal facilities with the addition of two new unit 
terminal buildings with attendant concourses for parking aircraft. The present terminal 
building will be converted into an international arrivals and departure building with 
facilities for customs and immigration inspection.

II. GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE FIRST STAGE PROGRAM 

The first stage development program for O'Hare Airport is designed to provide 
Chicago with greatly expanded airport facilities which will accommodate the new com- 
mercial jet airliners and the expanded volumes of passengers which they are expected 
to carry. 

"Planning has been based on meeting needs for projected traffic as estimated by 
Landrum and Brown, airport consultants. The first stage development program has 
generally been based on meeting the traffic forecasts for the year 1965, at which time 
it is estimated there will be over five million passengers enplaned at O'Hare Airport. 

TERMINAL AREA 



Several different areas of the airport are scheduled either for expansion or en- 
tirely new development. The principal area of expansion will be the terminal area 
at the approximate center of the airport. An artist's rendering showing how this area 
will appear at the completion of first stage development is shown in the accompanying 
photograph. Additional sketches are also included which show close-up views of this 
area as well as some of the other areas scheduled to be developed. 

It is planned to increase terminal facilities with the addition of two new unit 
terminal buildings with attendant concourses for parking aircraft. The present terminal 
building will be converted into an international arrivals and departure building with 
facilities for customs and immigration inspection.

The terminal buildings will have adequate space to accommodate the expected 
volumes of passengers without overcrowding. In addition to large areas being provided 
for the airlines and the public, there will also be corresponding provisions made for 
concessions which will serve the public and generate income for this project. 

Areas assigned to airlines are based on their written requests for leased space. 
Areas assigned to concessions are based on the recommendations of Landrum and Brown, 
airport consultants. Both of these areas are delineated on the exhibits in the Appendix. 

One of the principal concessions is the main restaurant which will be housed 
in a separate building connecting the two new unit terminals, and which will overlook 
the activity on the aircraft parking ramps. 

The greatly expanded terminal area will be served by an elevated roadway which 
will separate the large volume of inbound and outbound ground vehicles which are ex- 
pected to come from Chicago via the new Northwest Expressway which is scheduled 
for completion by mid-1960 and the Northern Illinois Tollways which are scheduled 
to be fully completed by January, 1959. 

To accommodate the greatly increased number of automobiles expected,a large 
parking lot is planned for the center of the terminal area which will accommodate 
5,700 automobiles. 

On the apron side of the terminal area sufficient space is being provided along 
both sides of the passenger concourse to park over sixty aircraft. These aircraft park- 
ing positions will be served by an underground hydrant fueling system which will be 
designed to transport large volumes of jet fuel into the aircraft in a minimum time. 
Several of the airlines contemplate the installation of motorized loading bridges which 



-9- 






will enable passengers to be loaded and unloaded directly from second level departure 
rooms along the elevated concourses without interferring with operations on the parking 
apron . 

In addition to greatly expanded facilities for the terminal area the first stage 
development program also calls for establishing new facilities in other areas. These 
include the hangar, cargo, tank farm and miscellaneous service areas. 

HANGAR AREA 



A large tract of land in the northwest section of the airport has been reserved 
for hangar facilities. Nine hangars are planned in the first stage with additional 
space available for other hangars in the future. Plans are also being made to extend 
sewer, water and power facilities into this area plus a taxiway and a service roadway. 
The entire area is to be graded and ditches provided to drain the area. Individual 
hangars will be provided with their own water reservoirs to afford adequate fire pro- 
tection in the area without drawing on the main airport supply for emergencies. 

CARGO AREA 



A Cargo Area located east of the terminal area will provide joint cargo facilities 
for most of the domestic airlines plus the Railway Express Agency. Approximately 92, 160 
sq. ft. of joint cargo space will be provided with apron for parking ten aircraft. Ad- 
ditional separate facilities amounting to 36,000 square feet of warehouse and apron for 
parking six aircraft will be provided for an all-cargo air carrier. 

Sites have also been reserved in the area for flight kitchens and a post office 
which are expected to be constructed by others during the first stage of construction. 



-10- 



Water, sewers, and roads, however, will be provided under the bond issue. The Public 
Service Co. Division of Commonwealth Edison Company will provide power facilities 
and gas facilities will be provided by either the Northern Illinois Gas Company or the 
Peoples Gas Light and Coke Company. 

TANK FARM AREA 

A tank farm area will be established in the northwest corner of the airport 
beyond the hangar area. Facilities will be provided at this location for unloading and 
storing fuel. These include facilities for receiving fuel by pipe line, railroad tank car 
and truck. The tank farm will be connected to satellite storage facilities located 
around the terminal apron and thence to the hydrants at the aircraft parking positions 
by a system of underground pipe lines. 

SERVICE AREAS 



The principal airport service facilities will be provided in three separate areas 
on the airport. A large new heating and refrigeration plant will be provided adjacent 
to the terminal area near the main entrance road. A fire station will be constructed in 
an area just beyond the terminal aircraft parking apron adjacent to the truck fill stand 
area. An airport maintenance building will be provided at the eastern end of the 
Cargo Area. 

RUNWAYS, TAXIWAYS AND UTILTIES 

In addition to these developed areas, provision is also being made to improve 
the present runway and taxiway system to accommodate jet traffic. Shoulders are 



being added to some taxiways to protect outboard jet engines on the new jet aircraft. 
Taxiways and runways will be lengthened and strengthened with overlays as required. 
The airfield lighting system will also be improved. 

Some of this work has already been completed or is currently under construction. 
Runway 9C-27C has been lengthened and overlayed. Runway 14R-32L is currently 
being lengthened and strengthened. It is scheduled to be returned to service in Dec- 
ember, 1958. 

The master plan for the airport also makes provision for future additional runways 
which will be built as required during later stages of airport development. 

In addition to the above, the utility systems are to be greatly expanded. The 
overall drainage system for the airport is also to be improved and expanded in the first 
stage of construction. 

Sites are also being provided for a large motel, an automobile service station 
and a parking area and service center for rent-a-cars. It is anticipated that these facil- 
ities will be built in the first stage, financed with private funds. Negotiations are 
planned by the City to this effect after the bonds have been sold. 

A list of the major items of airport construction to be undertaken in the first 
stage, together with a general description, outline specification and cost estimate for 
each, follows in the next section of this report.

-13- 



A. RUNWAYS AND TAXIWAYS: 

1 . Taxiways Serving the Cargo Area 

a. Description: A system of taxiways will be provided to serve the Cargo 
Area. The principal taxiway of this sytem is an east - west extension 
of the outer circular taxiway from the point where it completes a 
circuit of the Terminal Area apron. This taxiway passes along the 
south side of the Cargo Area and connects to two north - south taxi- 
ways which merge with the aircraft parking aprons serving the two 
joint airline cargo buildings. The easternmost of these two taxiways 
will also serve the area allotted to The Flying Tiger Line for a cargo 
facility. 

A short taxiway connecting the westernmost of the two north - south 
taxiways with the Terminal Area apron completes the Cargo Area 
taxiway system. 

b. Outline Specification: Taxiways will be constructed of concrete 15" 
thick and 75 feet wide on compacted granular sub-base. Total 
design thickness shall be sufficient to support 100,000 pound 
single wheel loads according to C.A.A. standards for soil 
conditions encountered. Taxiway grades shall not exceed 1-1/2%. 
Stabilized shoulders of 3" of bituminous concrete on compacted 
granular sub-base shall be installed on both sides of the taxiway 
except on the side where the taxiway merges with the cargo aprons. 
These shoulders shall be 25 feet wide and shall be designed to 



-14- 



support 12,000 pound wheel loads. Perimeter taxiway lighting shall 
also be installed on both sides of the taxiways, except where the taxi- 
way merges with the cargo apron. 

c. Cost Estimate $986,000. 

2. Improvements to Runway 14R-32L 

a. Description: In September of 1958 the City of Chicago awarded contracts 
for certain improvements and extensions to existing Runway 14R-32L. 
These improvements include an extension of the parallel taxiway to the 
northwest end of the runway, a warm-up pad at both ends of the runway, 
an extension of the runway at the southeast end to make a total runway 
length of 8,838 feet, an overlay of the runway with concrete to strengthen 
It for jet traffic and new runway lighting. This work is being financed 
from funds already appropriated by the City of Chicago, State of Illinois 
and the United States Government. This work is scheduled for completion 
by December 15, 1958. 

Certain of the new lighting work, however, is ineligible for Federal or 
State aid and must be included in the bond Issue financing. This amount 
is estimated to be $83,000. 

In addition another improvement is considered essential for safety. This 
involves elimination of the drainage ditch for 250 feet on either side of 
the runway at the northwest end. It is proposed to remedy this situation 
by filling the ditch for 500 feet and carry the drainage water under- 



-15- 



ground in pipes. This is estimated to cost $250,000. 
b. Cost Estimate $333,000. 

3. Taxiway to Hangar Area: 

a. Description: A taxiway is planned which will provide airplane access 
to the lots in the Hangar Area. This taxiway will start at the existing 
taxiway along the southeast edge of the Hangar Area and extend through 

the center of this area and connect to the parallel taxiway to Runway 14R-32L. 

b. Outline Specification: (See taxiway specification under Item A-l above) 

c. Cost Estimate $1,492,000. 

4. New Outer Circular Taxiway and Connecting Taxiways Around the Terminal 
Complex: 

a. Description: It is planned to extend the present outer circular taxiway 
around the new terminal area parking apron. This taxiway will connect 
to the terminal apron with short connecting taxiways at regular intervals 
and will also connect to a new taxiway serving the Cargo Area. The 
outer edge of the terminal apron will serve aircraft taxiing in one dir- 
ection and the outer taxiway will carry traffic in the opposite direction. 

b. Outline Specification: (See taxiway specification under Item A-l above) 

c. Cost Estimate $ 1,467,000. 

5. Shoulder Stabilization on Some Existing Taxiways: 

a. Description: On taxiways 75 l wide the outboard engines of the new large 



-16- 



jet aircraft will be beyond the edge of the taxiway pavement. To 
minimize ingestion of foreign material into these engines and also to 
reduce erosion along the sides of the taxiways, it is considered essential 
to install 25' wide shoulders stabilized with bituminous concrete on both 
sides of taxiways to be used by jets. 

It is proposed to construct these shoulders on the westernmost section of 
the parallel taxiway to Runway 9C-27C and on the existing portion of 
the outer circular taxiway. 

It will also be necessary to rework the perimeter lighting system on these 
taxiways to permit the shoulder installation. 

b. Outline Specification: Remove existing unclassified material to depth 
required. Install new granular and water bound macadam sub-base and 
3" bituminous concrete wearing surface. Total thickness to be designed 
to support 12,000 pound single wheel loads. Rework taxiway lights. 

c. Cost Estimate $267,000. 

6. Blast Fence at Warm-Up Pad near the Northwest End of Runway 14L-32R: 

a. Description: To protect the hangar area road and hangar development 
adjacent to the warm-up pad from jet blasts, it is planned to install a 
blast fence which will deflect these blasts. 



-17- 



b. Outline Specification: The blast fence will be constructed of precast 
concrete panels installed at an angle of approximately 60° with the 
ground and supported by precast concrete "A" frame. 

c. Cost Estimate $ 7,000. 



-18- 



B. UTILITIES: 

1 . New Water Main from Chicago: 

a. Description: O'Hare Airport will require a 30" water main. The Bureau of 
Water, Water Distribution Division of the City of Chicago will build a 36" 
water main from Bryn Mawr Avenue and Canfield Road to inside the pro- 
perty and contribute the difference in cost between 30" and 36" water 
main . 

Near the east boundary of the airport a Meter and Chlorine House will be 
constructed. The water will become the property of the Bureau of Avia- 
tion of the City of Chicago at this point and it will be chlorinated by 
this department. 

Water main will be extended into the Terminal Area Reservoir and around 
the Terminal Area for fire protection.

2. Manholes Precast concrete ring or block with City 

standard covers, frames and steps . 

c. Cost Estimate $ 605,000. 

5. Storm Drainage Improvements, Alterations and Extensions for the Airport: 

a. Description: The airport area is presently served by two drainage outlets. 
One is to the north across Higgins Road and the other is to the southeast 
across Mannheim Road. Both outlets eventually empty into the DesPlaines 
River. 

In general, it is proposed to carry storm water to the edge of paved areas 
in underground pipe, and thence to the main drainage channels in open 
ditches. The drainage system will be designed to control the rapid run- 
off from the large paved areas so that it will leave the airport at a pre- 
determined rate which will not innundate the populated areas beyond the 
airport. To accomplish this result it will be necessary to provide ponding 
areas where a heavy rainfall can be impounded and allowed to drain off 
gradually through existing channels beyond the airport. 

b. Outline Specification: Pipe will be corrugated metal and concrete. 
Branch ditches will have slopes of not greater than 5 to 1 and will be

seeded. Main channels will have small pilot channels in the center. 
Main channels will be seeded. Head walls will be reinforced concrete. 



c. Cost Estimate 



$ 942,000. 



6. Cargo Area Utilities: 

a. Description: Cold water main shall be a branch connection from the 
Utility Tunnel Main. Fire protection shall be a branch main from city 
water main loop. Sanitary sewer shall connect to main sewer east of 
Terminal Area.

7. New Heating and Air Conditioning Plant: 
Air Conditioning: 
a. Description: Refrigeration machines will furnish chilled water through an 
underground tunnel system to each terminal building, each concourse and 
to restaurant area. The chilled water will be looped so that additional 
buildings may be connected at a future date. Condenser water will be 
cooled by induced draft cooling tower located on the ground adjacent to 
the boiler plant. 



-22- 



b. Outline Specification: 

Refrigeration Machines: Electric motor or steam turbine driven centrifugal 
compressors or steam absorption units. 

Cooling Towers: Induced draft type, transite enclosed cooling tower with 
redwood fill and steel basin and supporting structure. Tower to be supported 
on elevated grid 6'-0" or more above grade level . 

Pumps: Chilled water and condenser water pumps shall be horizontally 
split cased, double suction, motor driven pumps. 

Piping: All chilled and condenser water piping shall be schedule 40 black 
steel pipe with welded fittings. 

Insulation: All chilled water piping shall be insulated with 1-1/2" glass 
fiber insulation with vapor barrier jacket. 

Heating:

Fueling System: 

a. Description: In general the fueling system will consist of a primary bulk 
storage area, known as the Tank Farm Area, located in the northwest 
corner of the airport, satellite storage areas located around the periphery 
of the terminal apron, and underground apron fueling systems which will 
terminate in hydrants at individual aircraft parking positions. 

Transfer of fuel from bulk to satellite will be by means of eight underground 
pipe lines assigned to suppliers. Each of these lines terminate in a mani- 
fold at the Truck Fill Stand Area which is located near the northwest 
corner of the terminal apron. From this point individual airline-product 
lines, which also connect to the manifold, will extend to the satellite 
storage areas beyond. One transfer line will be assigned to each of BNF, 
CAL, CAP and NOR. Two lines each will be assigned to AAL, DAL, 
NWA, TWA, UAL and EAL. 

Turbine and 115 octane Avgas are stored in the bulk tank farm. 110 
octane Avgas, however, is stored at the Truck Fill Stand Area and will 
be supplied only by truck . Transfer of 100 octane Avgas to aircraft 
will also be by truck only. 

Allowance is made for as many as five suppliers of turbine fuel and three 
115 octane Avgas suppliers if each supplies about the same quantity.

Satellite Storage Areas: Underground tanks in the satellite areas will store 
one day's supply of turbine and 1 15 Avgas as required by each airline, 
except that any airline requirement for less than 10,000 gallons per day 
will be satisfied by truck refueler drawing directly from bulk storage 
through the manifold at the Truck Fill Stand Area. 

Apron Fueling System: Six airlines, AAL, EAL, DAL, NWA, TWA and 
UAL will have two apron systems each. These can be used for two grades 
of fuel. CAP, BNF, CAL and NOR will each have a single apron system. 
Piping will be extended, however, so that airlines which do not require 
sufficient amounts of fuel to have a complete separate underground apron 
system, may, by adding hydrant valves and other mechanical equipment, 
purchase fuel through a major fuel user located on their finger. 

In addition to the above, an apron system with two hydrants will also be 
furnished to The Flying Tiger Lines' apron in the Cargo Area.

IV SUMMARY OF COST ESTIMATES 



-53- 



SUMMARY OF COST ESTIMATES 

The estimates of construction costs which are summarized in this section of the 
Engineering Report are shown in greater detail in the Appendix. 

The cost estimates of the fuel system were prepared by engineers in the office 
of James P. O'Donnell, New York City, who is the fuel system consultant on this pro- 
ject. He is also retained as the fuel consultant on the Idlewild Airport project for the 
Port of New York Authority in New York. 

Estimates for the construction of the hangars were prepared by the airlines. 
These estimates include all architectural and engineering fees as well as amounts to 
cover contingencies. It should be noted that these hangar allowances are the maximum 
which will be drawn from the revenue bond issue for each hangar. If any hangar is 
constructed at a cost which exceeds the allowance the excess cost will be borne by the 
airline involved. 

The balance of the cost estimates were prepared by two teams of engineers and 
estimators in the office of Naess & Murphy. These teams prepared independent estimates 
which were then consolidated into the estimates which appear in this Report after exten- 
sive discussion regarding any value judgments involved. 

In general the estimates are based on quantity take-offs times unit prices. 
Unit prices were based on current prices adjusted, as considered necessary, for increases 
anticipated during the period prior to construction. 

The estimates include amounts for soil borings, soil testing, and surveying. 
They also include amounts to cover insurance during the period of construction. 

Except in case of hangar estimates, which are all inclusive, separate items 
were added to the cost estimates for other items in the first stage program to cover 



-54- 



contractors' performance bonds, architectural and engineering services (including the 
cost of preliminary studies and the services of consultants Landrum and Brown and 
James P. O'Donnell), also 10% has been added to cover contingencies.
