IMEG provided engineering design services for a terminal modernization at the Eastern Iowa Airport.
The project included updates and enhancement of the existing terminal concourse, exterior façade and canopies, baggage pickup, and lobby areas in the pre-secure terminal area.
The primary canopies are taller and protrude farther over the driveway than the secondary canopies, to identify points of entry and cover guests. Visitors approaching the western end of the terminal can see a landscaped courtyard area with mechanical equipment hidden behind a 10-foot-high steel screen. An existing door leading into the ticketing area of the terminal was replaced with a glass facade. The exterior changes also include the installation of panels along the walkway to the northern part of the parking that help shield users from wind and rain.
Skylights were installed in the roof of the terminal to incorporate more natural sunlight, and the front windows of the terminal were replaced to bring additional natural light into the building. The lower level B and upper level C concourses will be expanded to accommodate higher levels of passenger traffic.
