Alberici led sweeping upgrades starting with power infrastructure to improve passenger and staff experiences and keep pace with rising passenger levels at Toronto Pearson Airport. The existing system performed adequately but had been pieced together over the years with systems and maintenance parts from a variety of manufacturers. The project involved integrating innovative baggage screening technology, including explosive detection systems, to enhance outbound baggage screening and throughput. The installation required seamless integration with existing conveyor systems and screening areas that needed to remain fully operational throughout construction. This complex task involved relocating numerous conveyor line interferences, electrical systems, mechanical components, fire protection piping, communication systems, security measures, air handling units, and light fixtures. Additionally, the installation had to be meticulously orchestrated in high-security areas on multiple levels of the airport facility, necessitating careful planning and adaptability to accommodate critical changes while meeting strict schedule milestones.
