Project Overview

This project consisted of renovation work on an existing operational terminal and the addition of a new terminal of approximately 25,000 square feet. The renovation work included transforming the existing TSA space into an extension of the ticketing area, and moving the TSA screening area into the old baggage claim area. The project also included remodeling the previous ticketing offices into TSA offices, and transforming the existing rental car area into additional ticketing queuing. In addition, Sundt built two departure/arrival gates with associated luxurious seating, restrooms, retail space (built out by others) and access to the courtyard.

One of the biggest challenges while working in a still-functioning airport was remodeling the baggage check-in while the original system was in operation. The team needed to reconfigure the baggage room, and they needed to complete it in one day. Every detail was planned well in advance to achieve the task and mitigate the stress surrounding it. The project team reconfigured the belt, put in all the new pieces and temporarily adjusted the original belt while concurrently moving the screening machine, which required FAA supervision. When operations re-opened the next day, everything worked perfectly.
