Since 2016, HNTB has served DFW as the airport’s facilities program manager/construction manager, partnering on a diverse range of projects that have improved operations, set new industry standards for innovation and enhanced the traveler experience.
The updated men’s, women’s and family restrooms implemented DFW’s new Holistic Airside Restroom Design Guidelines and features reduced touchpoints.
This new 40,000-square-foot facility houses 100 employees who monitor airport operations and emergency operations. The single-storey hardened steel and precast structure is built to withstand severe conditions, including an F5 tornado rating for all mission–critical component areas.
The new Terminal D South Expansion project connects the future Terminal F to the existing international Terminal D. The project added a 150,000-square-foot concourse, four new passenger gates to accommodate wide body, narrow body and regional aircraft, concession spaces, modern hold rooms, a Federal Inspection/US Customs corridor to accommodate international travelers, as well as a baggage handling extension.
DFW updated the high gates in its Terminal C using a new prefabricated construction method, a first for a US airport. Six prefabricated modules with metal panels and glazing already in place were brought together to form the 80,000-square-foot concourse. The innovative construction method allowed DFW Airport to construct the new terminal space at the same time it was demolishing the existing location, causing less of a disruption to customers and resulting in saved time and money.
