AECOM Hunt, as part of a joint venture, teamed up with the Indianapolis Airport Authority to deliver a new landmark to Indianapolis: The Col. H. Weir Cook Terminal at Indianapolis International Airport.
The new 1,275,000 SF terminal features two concourses, 40 gates and a grand main lobby area full of retail and restaurant space. Designed for a streamlined travel experience, the airport has been named The Best Airport in North America by Airports Council International for ten consecutive years.
The airport also includes a new air traffic control tower and administration building completed prior to the new terminal. Both the tower and new terminal presented the challenge of working between active runways and meeting FAA requirements for airport access and crane usage. By utilizing land already owned by the Airport Authority and implementing numerous energy-saving features, the airport achieved LEED Certified status.
