Houston Airport Systems Expansion — Riner Engineering, a UES company, provided geotechnical engineering services to Houston Airport Systems for the new Mickey Leland International Terminal (MLIT), Federal Inspection Services (FIS) Building and the Checked Baggage Inspection and Screening (BCIS) Building at Bush Intercontinental Airport as part of the $1.36B IAH Terminal Redevelopment Program. This new state of the art facility will incorporate the latest technologies that provide high-performance and cost-effective baggage security screening solutions.
The new BCIS will feature high speed computed tomography (CT), explosive detection systems (EDS) units and advanced software. The Baggage Handling System (BHS) incorporates the latest Transportation Security Administration’s Electronic Baggage Screening System technologies including cybersecurity, conveyance, and IATA’s Track and Trace best practices which are proven to reduce mishandling of baggage. In addition to RINER’s ongoing Construction Materials Testing services contract on the 325,000 SF FIS building, RINER is providing ongoing geotechnical services for other projects.
