Los Angeles World Airports’ (LAWA) LAX Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP)
The Los Angeles World Airports’ (LAWA) LAX Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) Project will continue to transform LAX into a world-class airport by relieving traffic congestion with the Central Terminal Area (CTA) and on the surrounding street network, improving the travel experience for passengers, and providing connection to the regional Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Agency (MTA or Metro) rail system. The LAX LAMP consists of several components. To date, UMS has provided Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services for 3 of these components.
UMS completed a utility engineering 3D project to locate and map all the utilities along the two-mile corridor of the APM project, utilizing the ASCE/CI 38-02 Standard. Multiple advanced 3D acquisition technologies and methodologies were applied to produce a 3D model and BIM output with Quality Levels as per the ASCE/CI 38-02 Standard. UMS was under contract with MAPLAX, a joint venture comprised of Parsons Brinckerhoff, Inc. and STV Inc., to support the preliminary design and program development for LAWA and the LAMP.
Utility Mapping Services (UMS) joined LAX Utilities LAMP Enabling Project (LULEP), the enabling contract, to designate facilities within the CTA that were unresolved during the earlier Phase I effort. This designation campaign reduced the number of vacuum excavated test holes by over 50%. Additionally, the area needing utility designation was expanded to include all APM walkways, West Way (a street), and areas around Lots 3 and 4. The deliverable for this project was a 2D map of all utilities within the APM footprint, supplemented with 3D information where available. UMS was under contract with MGJV, a joint venture comprised of Myers & Sons/Griffith in association with TYLIN International, to support the preliminary design and program development for Los Angles World Airport (LAWA) and the Landslide Access Modernization Program (LAMP).
