SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES
Consolidated Rent-A-Car Facility The ConRAC is a part of the LAMP and is scheduled to open in 2023. The facility will consolidate and streamline rental car operations, provide a direct connection to the APM and reduce 3,200 daily rental car shuttle trips. The facility hopes to achieve a LEED Silver Certification and will feature native drought tolerant landscaping, reclaimed water usage, and solar panels to generate 8,400 MW annually. Airfield & Terminal Modernization Project The ATMP is a group of projects that will enhance LAX’s airfield, terminals, and landside sites with a focus on Concourse 0, Terminal 9, airfield safety improvements, and an elevated roadway system. The project will reduce traffic congestion, allow for less aircraft idling therefore reducing air pollutant emissions, and provide connection to the APM train system and mass transit. Construction and operation phases will also create opportunities for local businesses and jobs for the community. The first projects were awarded construction contracts in 2022 with construction starting in 2023 and anticipated to be completed prior to the 2028 Olympics. It will be built to achieve LEED Silver Certification from USGBC.
Terminal Vertical Cores The Terminal Vertical Cores are designed as new front door entrances for three LAX terminals. They allow for the vertical circulation of passengers as well as a direct connection to the APM. The three cores will be linked to Tom Bradley International Terminal, Terminals 5 & 6 (Terminal 5.5) and Terminal 7. Terminal 5.5 will be designed to earn LEED Silver Certification from USGBC. Terminal Modernization Terminals 4 and 5 are home to American Airlines, JetBlue, and Spirit Airlines. The modernizations of these terminals include a new Terminal Vertical Core, additional space for passenger amenities in Terminal 4, and improvements to Terminal 4’s power systems. Direct, natural sunlight is a priority throughout the terminals and will help to reduce energy consumption. The project is designed to earn LEED Silver Certification from USGBC and was ongoing in 2022 with anticipated completion scheduled for 2028. Terminal 6 Improvements Projects included under Terminal 6 Improvements focus on enhancing the customer experience in gate areas, lounges, and passenger boarding bridges, as well as airside improvements. The project also includes improvements to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Federal Inspection Station and will modernize the TSA’s Security Screening Checkpoint with additional lanes. The project was ongoing in 2022 and is expected to be completed in 2023.

The APM will consist of 44 cars in total and during peak hours will arrive at each station every 2 minutes.
Automated People Mover The first train car for the APM arrived in August. The train cars were constructed in Pittsburgh and have zero emissions and exteriors made from recyclable materials. The energy-efficient electric train cars have a regenerative braking system that converts kinetic energy lost during deceleration back in to energy used for onboard power demands. Once completed, the APM will reduce congestion on LAX roadways and provide connectivity to regional transportation modes.
