Scope and Content
This project series documents planning and construction for Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica from 1974-1977. The office identified the project number as 7413.
This project consisted of renovations to the existing terminal 1 building, the addition of a terminal 2 and the addition of a small charter terminal. This work was undertaken in joint venture with other Canadian firms who worked together on airport planning projects around the world. The firms for this project consisted of Parkin Architects Planners as the architects, the Montreal Engineering Company Limited, Peat, Marwick and Partners, Ffolkes, Harrison & Partners Ltd., Rutkowski, Bradford & Partners, and IBI Group. The new terminal was a roughly rectangular building with paving and landscaping extending towards the parking lot. A long, narrow hallway moving diagonally from the main building was used for planing and deplaning. It was predicted that terminal 2 would need to be expanded in 1990 to deal with increased international traffic. This project was originally proposed in a report to plan developments for Jamaican airports from 1970-1990. It originally proposed airports in Kingston and Montego Bay, but only this Montego Bay project was realized.
The project is recorded through drawings and textual records dating from 1970-1977. The drawings include plans, sections, elevations, details, schedules, perspectives and development and phasing drawings. The textual records consist of correspondence, project reports and studies, the original 30 year development plan, drawing lists, schedules, specifications, contractor records, progress reports, meeting minutes, interoffice letters, daily diaries and tender documents.
