Adventures in Project Management Denver International Airport
by Blake Stone
Denver International Airport was the first new airport in the United States for decades. It took four years and close to $1 billion, one of the largest projects in history. In 1985 the city of Denver set out to construct a new state of the art airport that would allow them to be an air transportation hub with:
- Capacity to handle over 50 million passengers annually.
- Goal of a 30 minute TAT
- The critical system was the baggage handling system
- A single baggage system, moving away from each airline owning their own baggage handling system.
- A system designed to support 60k bags per hour, averaging 8-10 minutes from aircraft to carousel.
This analysis of the mega-project reviews the disciplines of initiating, planning and executing the work of the team to achieve their specific goals.
