Addressing Unique Industry Needs for American Airlines

Brandt received the prestigious Engineering News-Record (ENR) Texas & Louisiana Regional Best Project Award for its outstanding work on the American Airlines Catering Facility at DFW. This state-of-the-art facility, located near the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, spans approximately 214,000 square feet and serves as the largest airline catering kitchen in the United States. Brandt’s scope of work included mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) installations, showcasing exceptional craftsmanship and expertise.

The project featured complex MEP installations, including chilled water, hot water, ice melt systems, condensate drains, refrigerant piping, fire alarm systems, and lightning protection. Early integration of MEP building information modeling (BIM) coordination facilitated successful prefabrication and field installation, resulting in significant cost and schedule savings.

Despite challenges such as proximity to flight paths and strict lifting equipment regulations, Brandt demonstrated perseverance and agility, working closely with Holt Construction and coordinating with the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure compliance and timely completion. Safety remained a top priority throughout the project, with over 113,000 hours worked safely and zero recordable injuries achieved.

The completed facility not only enhances American Airlines’ catering operations but also serves as the initial development phase for DFW’s Terminal F, representing a significant investment in updated equipment, expanded production space, and streamlined efficiency. From its ultramodern design to its seamless integration with the client’s branding, the American Airlines Catering Facility sets a new standard for excellence in aviation infrastructure.
