Japan Airlines Cargo Facility, John F Kennedy International Airport.
The structural system for the world’s largest automated cargo facility was devised by Mr. Agassi who, as principal-in-charge, led its structural analysis and design in collaboration with Schenck of Germany and HOK of New York. The facility included a unique fully automated, multi-story rack-supported building to receive, store, retrieve, and inventory air cargo. The structural design successfully accommodated finely calibrated robotic machinery highly intolerant of structural imperfections.
