Vancouver International Airport YVR Main Picture

YVR Domestic Terminal Level 3 and 4 enhancements were completed in preparation for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

To accommodate new Hold Baggage Screening (HBS) equipment that scans the baggage that is to be carried in the cargo hold of aircraft, the Domestic Terminal was expanded, leaving space above the HBS open for development. The 100,000 square feet of new space includes an expanded retail area with new dining and shopping options on Level 3 as well as a public observation area and interactive exhibits on Level 4.

  • Four central UPS units
  • Tenant (vendors) utility metering
  • Lighting and lighting control systems
