United Airlines Dulles International Airport Polaris lounge

United Airlines is building a new first-class United Polaris lounge at Dulles International Airport’s Terminal C to serve domestic and international travelers. McKissack & McKissack provided construction administration services for the base building and the interiors.
As a “Transit Parkway,” the Expo Line includes neighborhood bike paths, pedestrian areas and landscaping to create community spaces. It will reduce vehicle miles traveled to cut fuel consumption, leading to cleaner air and energy conservation, and spur redevelopment and revitalization along the Exposition Boulevard corridor. The joint venture team was initially one of two entities providing preliminary engineering and related services to the Exposition Construction Authority for the second phase of the Expo Line. Thanks to its successful performance, this joint venture team was selected as the design-build contractor. Phase 2 extends the line further west to Santa Monica with a 6.6-mile extension that includes seven stations, with parking available at three stations. By 2030, an estimated 64,000 daily passengers are expected to ride the Expo Line, popularly known as the E Line. This will make it one of the most heavily used light rail lines in the country.
