DELTA AIRLINE MAINTENANCE HANGAR

STATUS: In Construction

CLIENT: Los Angeles World Airport

Delta occupies an aircraft maintenance facility in the pathway of Automated People Mover (APM) that Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) is constructing as part of the Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP).  To make way for the APM, Delta relocated its maintenance facility to World Way West, adjacent to Quantas Hanger Maintnance Facility.

YKD was retained to design the landscape around the new maintenance facility.  Planting design in an active airport environment faced many restrictions including limited tree species due to LAWA’s safety requirement that prohibits tall trees; harsh environment as plants are constantly exposed to turbulence and exhaust; and compliance with Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance (MWELO).  While selecting plants that are drought tolerant, low maintenance, and meeting safety code of LAWA, YKD also pushed for creativity by looking into plants that will provide visual interest through flowering or foliage color that adds to streetscape on World Way; vines are planted next to the tall retaining wall that wraps the facility to break the monolithic concrete wall.
