Success Story

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the third busiest airport in the world, with more than 67 million people passing through its terminals in a single year. The central complex features nine passenger terminals containing more than 4,350,00 square feet, with one of them—Tom Bradley International terminal—exceeding 1 million square feet.
Donald E. Kalanick, P.E., leads a team charged with preparing and maintaining lease drawings for all the facilities at LAX and three other Southern California airports that make up the Los Angeles World Airports. Every terminal at LAX has sets of AutoCAD drawings detailing airline tenants, retail space, and operational facilities. Tenant space at an airport of this size is very fluid. Retail spaces are remodeled, tenants change, and the use of a given area of a terminal can change frequently. Until recently, the team kept track of all these changes by manually editing AutoCAD® drawings. “To add or subdivide a space, we had to redraw the new space in AutoCAD, subtract the new space from overall totals
available for rent, renumber the space, change all the tables, and so on,” says Kalanick. “These drawings were hard to work with and a large source of errors.” 

Custom Autodesk Map™ Application Saves Hours 

Kalanick turned to Autodesk® Authorized Reseller and developer, Kelar Corporation, for a new database-driven application that vastly improved accuracy, efficiency, and workflow at LAX. Built on top of Autodesk Map™, Kelar created the Leaseline Management Application (LMA) to address the complex problems airports face in facilities management. “This is the only integrated space and agreement management system of its kind,” says Ed Maghboul, Project Manager at Kelar Corporation. “Before LMA, changes made at an airport could take days to be reflected in the facility drawings. With LMA, simple changes can be made in 30 minutes, and the information can be shared immediately with other groups like finance and security.” LMA allows engineers to add intelligence to the AutoCAD drawings by linking each space to information maintained on a database such as Microsoft® Access, MSSQL, or Oracle®. Updating one piece of information automatically updates every other associated table.
“The accuracy of LMA is phenomenal. It is a tremendous time saver,” adds Kalanick. “It allows us to respond more quickly to changes in the terminal, and other people can now use the data—for instance, finance can use the data to assign specific charges, distribute rates, and update operating and maintenance charges for tenants.” Departments in charge of concessions or terminal property can attach lease or contract numbers and other data to these drawing databases if desired for further analysis. Kelar has since expanded this concept to address the security needs of airports, by using Autodesk Map, Macromedia®
ColdFusion®, Autodesk MapGuide®, and Oracle®.
