Wichita Falls Regional Airport – Airport Terminal
Location:Wichita Falls, Texas
Design Consultants:Architect-Bundy, Young, Sims & Potter, Inc., Architect-URS Corporation
Sundt and a joint venture partner constructed a new terminal at the Wichita Falls Municipal Airport to replace the original terminal, which was constructed in 1959. The new, 52,000-square-foot facility includes two passenger gates, new jet bridges able to serve larger charter aircraft, a passenger area equipped for military personnel and their families, a facility that meets all Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility criteria, room for growth and easier access for passengers. In addition, approximately $5 million of scope was added for the team to perform new concrete apron paving, reconstruction of a taxiway and demolition of the existing terminal.
American Eagle, the regional partner of American Airlines, is the sole carrier at the terminal, which has room to add another carrier in the future.
Wichita Falls Municipal Airport is a joint military/civilian airport located at Sheppard Air Force Base. As part of the project, the team built an aircraft display area that includes a World War I JN-4D ‘Jenny,’ typical of the aircraft that was used for flight training at Call Field in Wichita Falls, and a T-38 ‘Talon,’ in use today.
The airport construction project was completed approximately three months ahead of schedule – in time for the 2014 holiday travel season.
