Des Moines Airport

Des Moines Airport Terminal
Des Moines Airport Terminal

Owner: Des Moines Airport Authority

Project Data: 33,000 SF

Construction Cost:

Lower Level and 2nd Floor - $500,000

Terminal Lobby - $2,000,000

Construction Completed: 2011

Passenger wayfinding and operational efficiencies were improved with common use passenger processing system (CUPPS). New terrazzo flooring and undulating ceiling accents feature splashes of color and patterns enhancing wayfinding from the ticketing lobby to the concourses and from the concourses to baggage claim and ground transportation areas. The new architectural finishes in the concourses coordinate and compliment the aesthetics previously established in security checkpoint areas.

All construction activities were organized in phases and scheduled at night to facilitate continuous operations throughout the project’s duration.
