Client: Miami-Dade Aviation Location: Miami, Florida Size of Project: 228,000 SF Construction Cost: $45 M Completion date: 1999 Unique Features:
Bermello Ajamil & Partners, Inc. (BA) designed a 10-gate concourse extension interconnecting at four levels with an existing concourse. The structure includes ground support for 10 widebody aircraft while the second and third levels accommodate domestic and international passengers. The design includes departure lounges with wide expanses of glass offering vistas of aircraft and sky; gates contain elevators and escalators allowing seamless domestic and international connections; moving walkways are located throughout. Terrazzo floors display an aquatic-themed “Art in Public Places” design.
Design responsibilities included newsstand and snack bars, signage, lighting, kitchens, and furniture. Compatibility with the first phase of the concourse was critical, as were the requirements for physical interfaces, scheduling, phasing, signage, and maintenance of traffic flow to maintain existing facility operations during construction.
