The cargo facilities expansion project at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport is tailored to the operations of DHL Global Forwarding. This new freight-forwarding facility includes about half a million square feet of warehouse and office space, as well as a vehicle maintenance area and a watch tower. The facility is the largest DHL Global Forwarding site in North America, with an adjacent aircraft ramp that accommodates large aircraft such as the Boeing 747.
G/BA provided LEED consulting (v2009), commissioning, and related energy efficiency services. Systems commissioned included mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as the building automation controls system.
