SKANSKA USA AND HOK SIGN OFF TAMPA EXPANSION PROJECT
Skanska USA and global design firm HOK have announced the completion of the USD 154 million expansion and renovation of the main terminal at Tampa International Airport.
The upgrade is designed to enhance the passenger experience, improve wayfinding and expand concession options for travellers at one of the nation’s best airports.
The design-build team of Skanska and HOK led the redevelopment of the Main Terminal and concessions programme – one of the largest elements of the first phase of the Airport’s Master plan expansion. Construction commenced in 2014.
The work is part of a three-phase expansion and modernisation that will allow Tampa International Airport to accommodate up to 34 million annual passengers.
As part of the Main Terminal renovation, the creation of additional areas for passengers to rest, conduct business or enjoy family time was a top priority.
In its role as builder, Skanska led the Main Terminal Transfer Level expansion and redevelopment of the Airport’s Main Terminal and functional improvements to airsides A, C, E and F.
The redeveloped Main Terminal improves sight lines across the entire floor, creates additional seating areas, intermixes airside concessions, and makes four outdoor terraces accessible to meters-greeters, passengers and employees with two terrace spaces dedicated to restaurants.
“Our team at Skanska worked in close collaboration with our design partner on this project, HOK, to deliver a Main Terminal that is more efficient and will better serve the evolving needs of today’s airport passengers,” notes Skanska’s executive vice president and general manager for Florida, Michael Brown.
HOK provided architecture, landscape architecture, interior and lighting design and sustainable consulting services for the terminal and airside project.
With its completion, the project added 55,000 square feet to the terminal’s third-floor transfer level. By pushing back shuttle enclosures and moving restaurants to the perimeter, it opened a central area for shops and comfortable lounge seating.
“When guests visit the renovated terminal, they will experience design details reflecting the beautiful Tampa Bay region,” says Leesa Coller, AIA, HOK’s design principal for the project.
Sustainable design and building methods used in the passenger terminal project will make it 30% more energy efficient than current energy required standards, with the lighting systems using LED lamps and an aluminum ceiling painted in matte white to provide better light reflection.
