Indianapolis New International Airport

Commercial - Indianapolis Airport Project

This project is part of a $1.3 billion state-of-the-art new terminal to create a hub for major airlines to serve the city. CSO, DVPE, American Structurepoint and others worked together to design the new terminal, concourses, restaurants, retail shops, parking garage, surface lots, Ground Transportation Center, and roadway system.

One of the most technologically and architecturally advanced terminals in the world. The new midfield terminal (being built between the airport's two runways) is state of the art International Airport with 1.2 million ft² of floor space and consist of two concourses, each with 20 gates. The heart of the terminal is a 43,000ft² circular central plaza with a 100 ft. diameter skylight to make use of natural illumination and give a feeling of openness.

The terminal has a total of 90,000ft² dedicated to shopping areas 55,000ft² to office space and 96 check-in counters, luggage screening, luggage claim, as well as 18 passenger security areas. The central plaza is used to host civic events and art exhibitions. The electrical power design includes multiple medium voltage (13.8KV) switchgears with distributed substations providing power safety/redundancy, the latest indirect and direct state-of-art lighting system with programmable and natural light sensing controls to provide the most energy efficient lighting system. The project was divided into several different construction and design segements over a 6-year period. The construction of the new terminals began in July 2005, the total cost was $974M and was completed on November 2009.

Extensive coordination efforts with the team architects, landscape architect, construction managers, owners technical representatives, and other multi-discipline design engineers was necessary to provide the most effective system to serve the airport patrons, airport, and ancillary users.

LEED Certification sustainable features include: a site designed to lessen local environmental impact; natural illumination and a roof reflecting energy and limits heat gain; water saving fixtures; building materials obtained from local manufacturers and suppliers; building materials were chosen to help reduce fumes and respiratory irritants; dust control at entryways; isolated use of cleaning products to specially ventilated areas; and a recycling program.
