GSP Wins Akron Airport Security Checkpoint Design Contract
Jun 24, 2010 06:07 AM

Gresham, Smith and Partners, a multi-disciplinary design and consulting firm, announced it will provide design services for Akron-Canton (Ohio) Airport. Contracted by SoL Harris/Day, GS&P will focus on passenger security checkpoint expansion efforts being undertaken as part the facility’s overall airport terminal modification program. This project aims to increase capacity in an effort to keep checkpoint wait times short and enhance the passenger experience.

Akron-Canton Airport kicked off CAK 2018, its 10-year, $110-million capital improvement plan in 2008. CAK2018 is comprised of 10 vital projects, including the extension and safety upgrade of Runway 5/23, a new federal inspection facility, a new aircraft fire and rescue building, expanding parking for cars and airplanes, and the expansion to the passenger security checkpoint.

Passenger growth of 64 percent since the original checkpoint design, which used 2002 passenger numbers, has created a strain on the existing area. All improvements will be designed to match existing finishes used in the recent terminal modification and will include the design of a new entry to the terminal gates, the relocation and renovation of the existing concessionaire, and the development of a common meeting point for incoming flight passengers.
