The massive nature of the $1.2 billion Chicago O’Hare Terminal 5 redevelopment project is apparent in a single electric wiring permit.

Hartmann Electric Company, Inc. on Dec. 12 received a $15 million permit to “provide power to 1,349 motors” for the redevelopment.

Overall, Power Construction, Austin Commercial and Ujamaa Construction are co-ordinating the terminal makeover to increase capacity by 25%.

“The project includes extension of Concourse M with ten new gates, new airline lounges, four additional TSA security checkpoints, improved immigration facilities, and a complete modernization to the 25-year-old baggage handling system,” Power says on its website. “The new T5 will accommodate both domestic and international operations upon completion in 2022.”
