Airport car park in partial closure

A section of the LF Wade International Airport's short-term parking is closed for four weeks to allow for structural upgrades to the terminal.

Nine air handling units, which are large fans that circulate air around the terminal and cool the area, will be replaced along with structural roof curbs that support the AHUs once they are installed.

Skyport says it is essential that the “failing, old air handling units” are replaced to ensure comfortable air flow through the current facility while it remains in operation.

A portion of the short-term parking lot officially closed today and will be shut for the next four weeks.

The new air handling units will aim to improve air quality within the building, be more energy efficient and allow ramping down of speed during off peak hours.

They are made of stainless steel, which will provide more resistance to the harsh Bermudian environment.

Myron Burchall, director of maintenance and engineering at Skyport said: “We would like to thank the public in advance for their co-operation while we continue to upgrade the current terminal to extend its life until the new terminal is completed.

“This work is dependent on good weather and we hope to finish it ahead of schedule.”
