HMH prepared a master utility plan for the San Jose International Airport in preparation for the Airport Improvement Program. The plan included utility mapping of the entire airport and surrounding area, encompassing the area bounded by Highway 101, Highway 87, Highway 880, and Coleman Avenue/De La Cruz Boulevard. Critical schedule and budget milestones were maintained for use in development of the new terminal concepts. Research was performed by obtaining several thousand record drawings from airport archives, city agencies, and utility companies.
Over two miles of road was designed to accommodate projected traffic demands and to transition the flow of traffic onto an efficient one-way loop network. A ground transportation center was constructed at Terminal A for mixed transit use including bus, rental car shuttles and taxis. A second transportation center was constructed at Terminal C along with several taxi staging areas. Road width varied from one to six lanes. Value engineering allowed the project to meet strict budget constraints. HMH played a key role in coordination with the Master Plan Team, Airport Operations, Airport Facilities, subconsultants, and utility companies
