Newark Liberty International Airport Terminal C


Prior to joining HAKS, Jeffrey Terzakis was responsible for managing the design team and the construction manager for this $130 million complete gut renovation of Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport. Mr. Terzakis oversaw the conversion of the lower-level parking area into a new 125,000-square-foot arrivals level complete with nine new baggage claim carousels. This fast-track project was completed in an extremely short duration, with baggage from the first flight collected only nine months after the last car parked in the parking lot. Mr. Terzakis also managed the conversion of the old arrivals level into a new departures level complete with 86 ticket counter positions with new LED overhead signage and self-check-in electronic kiosks to assist passengers.

Terminal C upgrades also included four new elevators and eight new escalators in each of three expanded and renovated vertical circulation cores. Passenger security checkpoints were upgraded and expanded from eight to 20 lanes. Mr. Terzakis also was responsible for the construction of space to accommodate various airline functions as well as the creation of new updated back-office support space, agent break room, and lounge areas, and oversaw the construction of new retail space throughout the existing Terminal C.
