City of Chicago Department of Aviation

O'Hare Global Terminal Expansion

VES is working under BNP Associates, Inc. (BNP) in association with the City of Chicago for the O’Hare Global Terminal (OGT) project.

For this 2.2-million-square-foot project, Ross & Baruzzini | CAGE Inc. (formerly Cage, Inc.) and BNP, the two most prominent firms in design engineering for airport baggage claim systems, will collaborate on the most significant airport expansion project in the country.

VES will develop new Revit (2020) content of baggage handling systems with common shared parameters for use by all three collaborating firms (BNP, Ross & Baruzzini | GAGE, Inc., and VES). Once developed, families will be deployed to the baggage handling model on Autodesk’s BIM 360 cloud server, where all the collaborators will work on a unified model, real-time, from any location around the world.


VES will also provide electrical engineering and design services to support the baggage handling system throughout the airport expansion.

The OGT will be designed by Jeanne Gang as part of a collaborative design joint venture between Studio Gang, Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB), Corgan, Milhouse Engineering & Construction, Inc., and STLarchitects that was formed specifically to realize this project.
