TLC specializes in engineering building systems for airports to provide passengers with comfortable and safe travel experiences. We design seamless passenger movement through secured areas, complying with Federal Inspections Services (FIS), Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), Transportation Security Administration and other strict and rapidly changing requirements.
Dominic Cacolici, PE, leads TLC’s aviation market. Dominic applies his passion for engineering by collaborating with teams to identify design measures that result in energy-efficient and safe airport operations, while maintaining comfortability for the traveling public and workers. He consistently exceeds expectations set by the myriad of agencies that have input and approval over airport facilities, including the FIS and CBP.
TLC is a leader in the unique analysis and design of pre-conditioned air (PCA) systems. The video below highlights our innovative PCA system design at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport that saves airlines nearly five million gallons in fuel and $15 million in fuel costs. These achievements are a result of a centralized plant that supports each of the airport’s 73 jet gates with both heating and cooling, eliminating the need for aircrafts to run their engines while parked at gates. Design innovation combined with minimized environmental impacts contributed to the project earning both regional and national recognition in ASHRAE’s International Tech Awards.
Let TLC’s experienced engineers customize a design that maximizes energy efficiency and improves air quality for your next aviation project.
