Anil Verma Associates, Inc. (AVA) provided Architectural Design Services associated with the preparation of 100% Construction Documents for the in-line baggage handling project for terminals 5, 7 & 3. This served as a prototype for all other terminals as well. AVA provided Construction Administration Services for Terminal 3.


This was a highly specialized project.  The scope of services for the in-line Explosive Detection Screening (EDS) Baggage Project at LAX was to convert the existing checked screening system into a state-of-the-art automated system which includes sophisticated explosive screening equipment, conveyors, and sorting systems. The project also included developing any supporting infrastructure or replacement facilities required for this modification.  The challenge in this project was for phasing in the new system during continuous passenger service and operation of the existing baggage handling system.
