BHM Terminal Modernization

This project renovated and expanded the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport commercial air terminal. The existing 287,000-square foot facility had 19 gates arranged in two concourses. The facility size was increased to 440,000 square feet with 25 gates arranged in three concourses and given the capability of receiving international commercial flights. The project was designed to be constructed in two phases to keep the airlines operational during the renovation.
