Terminal Expansion and Renovation
C&S was the architect, engineer, and construction manager for the $26 million terminal expansion and renovation at Ithaca Tompkins International Airport. The first phase included a 7,100-square-foot expansion to house enhanced baggage screening and baggage make-up space, relocation of and upgraded offices, building utility systems upgrades, exterior entrance canopy improvements, retrofit and relocation of one existing and installation of three new passenger boarding bridges. Phase 2 added 8,500 square feet to accommodate an enhanced passenger screening and holding area, additional conference space and a baggage conveyance system, restroom renovations, LED lighting, new geothermal well field and HVAC system, and new solar canopy-covered system for terminal area parking.
Construction was spread over multiple phases to minimize disruption. Airport employees and patrons had to use the space during construction, so safety was primary. All airline ticketing and baggage handling operations were temporarily relocated, with short-term ticket counters and offices set up.
