The American Express Centurion Lounge at LAX opened on Monday, March 9, 2020. The lounge is American Express’ largest yet, spanning nearly 14,000 square feet in the Tom Bradley International Terminal with capacity to accommodate 530 guests.
For those traveling into new time zones, or guests hoping to relax before a long flight, the Centurion Lounge at LAX will feature first-of-its-kind Sunrise and Moonrise tranquility rooms, offering brightly and dimly lit quiet spaces to relax and recharge. The Moonrise room ushers in a sense of nighttime relaxation through a starry night inspired ceiling, creating an atmosphere of subtle, yet relaxing energy. Meanwhile, the Sunrise room helps awaken the senses with illuminated walls, emanating an atmosphere of dawn-like hues. This new location will be a center of tranquility to address travelers’ needs with unique spa services centered around energy and light. Guests can indulge in Light Therapy designed to hydrate skin, Reiki treatments to restore the body’s equilibrium, and Ear Reflexology to relax the mind and ease the body.
The project had a slow start due to LAX’s strict standards, yet PPM hit the ground running to get the work completed on schedule. PPM is responsible for the plumbing scope on this project including domestic plumbing systems such as domestic hot & cold, sanitary waste & vent, storm drain, irrigation, gas and all related equipment. The entire crew did exceptional work prioritizing, which is a critical component on these fast-paced jobs. Design details on the project were but a few of the factors keeping the project tight on deadlines, such as bathroom sinks being shipped from Italy with a 17-week lead time. Our team responded promptly to all requests, making the project run smoothly from start to finish.
