Question description

You have been selected by an airport authority to design a new terminal building which is expected to enplane approximately 1.5 million passengers annually at the client’s medium hub airport. As you and your team of planners and architects determine a strategy for the study, questions must be answered with regard to what type of facility would be most feasible to accommodate the projected passenger demand.

Prior to presenting your teams’ preliminary design recommendations to the client, your team conceptualizes a terminal building sketch by providing solutions to the following questions:

  1. i)  What percentage of the total U.S. enplanements will the terminal building experience annually;

  2. ii)  Determine the ideal terminal concept(s) and passenger flow distribution conducive to accommodating demand at the facility;

  3. iii)  Identifythemainadvantageanddisadvantageoftheconcept(s);

  4. iv)  You learn the airport’s critical aircraft is a Boeing 737-500. Based on this and passenger enplanement projections, determine the type and number of gates that will be necessary;

  5. v)  Determine the range of gross terminal building area that will be required to accommodate demand;

  6. vi)  Determine the number of total auto parking spaces necessary based on passenger activity levels; and

  7. vii)  Break down the number of stalls that will be short-term versus long-term parking, if necessary.
