HOK and Frankfurt-Short-Bruza Associates Design Expanded Terminal at Will Rogers World Airport
In partnership with HOK, Oklahoma–based Frankfurt-Short-Bruza Associates (FSB) has released renderings of an expanded terminal at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma.
The schematic design was recently approved by Oklahoma City Airport Trust and hopes to increase the terminal’s capacity. As of now, the airport has only one gate that is available to lease, which leaves little room for additional airlines. Having only one leasable gate is also preventing current carriers from increasing their capacity.
“The design will enable the airport to attract new airlines and reintroduce international travel, expanding its destinations and placing Oklahoma City on the map of the world’s top airports” said Will Jenkinson, vice president and regional leader of HOK’s Aviation + Transportation practice.
The project will introduce additional retail outlets, dining amenities, high-tech upgrades, new baggage claim seating, four new gates, and space for six more gates and future international air service. An improved and expanded security checkpoint will be added to adhere to new Transportation Security Administration modes of operation.
A new public observation gallery and suspended deck will also provide lounge space with concourse views. Newly added skylights and larger windows will provide more natural light throughout the concourse, where public art installations will be prominently featured.
