The city had managed the design and construction of the project by grouping design and construction activities into seven categories or "areas":
Area #0 Program management/preliminary design
Area #1 Site development
Area #2 Roadways and on-grade parking
Area #3 Airfield
Area #4 Terminal complex
Area #5 Utilites and specialty systems
Area #6 Other
Since the fall of 1992, the project budget had increased by $224 million (from $2,700 million to $2,924 million) principally as a result of scope changes.
• Structural modifications to the terminal buildings (primarily in the Landside Terminal and
Concourse B) to accommodate the automated baggage system • Changes in the interior configuration of Concourse B
• Increases in the scope of various airline tenant finished, equipment, and systems, particularly in Concourse B
• Grading, drainage, utilities, and access costs associated with the relocation of air cargo facilities to the south side of the airport
• Increases in the scope and costs of communication and control systems, particularly premises wiring
• Increases in the costs of runway, taxiway, and apron paving and change orders as a result of changing specifications for the runway lighting system
• Increased program management costs because of schedule delays
Yet even with all of these design changes, the airport was ready to open except for the baggage handling system.
