Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) Airport Terminal 4 Node 4 (T4N4) Federal Inspection Services (FIS) Project – Phoenix, AZ

Terminal 4 North Concourse 4 (T4N4) was a modernization project of the Customs Border Protection (CBP) areas and the supporting areas around the CBP. The project was a Federal Inspection Services (FIS) project, providing renovations and expansion of the CBP arrivals and processing hall.

The T4N4 FIS project was a Design-Build construction contract awarded to Skanska Construction; the design partner was Architekton Architects.

Work included modernization of escalators and baggage claim carousels, the addition of a high-speed passenger elevator and an oversize baggage elevator, remodeling the Customs Border Protection offices and support facilities, and reconfiguring primary and secondary screening and inspection areas for Customs. All work was performed within an active FIS, which remained operational during construction.

Inspired Networks was contracted by Architekton Architects for the design of the Communication, Security, and Special Systems (outlined below). Inspired Networks, in coordination with the CBP, performed the systems design for TSA proprietary systems.
