The Delta Terminals at JFK underwent a major renovation which included the addition of five separate free standing retail kiosks for Terminal 2. The lease lines of these spaces, comprised of extreme curved features, needed to accommodate a Hudson News, CNN Newsstand, Kids Works, Life is Good and Discovery Channel Airport Store. The existing terminal ceiling was over 25 feet high and each store was required to stand on its own. A double stacked unistrut ceiling grid was devised to support the walls while loads were dispersed down through small columnar posts within the space. Posts within the exterior partition walls secured to a base plate anchored into the existing flooring. Spot asbestos abatement was also required for all floor penetrations. The stores were developed and completed from preliminary phases to the grand opening in March 2007.
