Building on A Legacy of Customer Service

Tampa International Airport
Passenger Terminal and Concessions Redevelopment

Tampa, Florida, USA

“The HOK team has shown great vision, and a detailed approach to communications, coordination and execution. We look forward to a great result!”

Jeff Siddle, P.E.
Assistant Vice President of Planning and Development, Tampa International Airport

Tampa International Airport is in the midst of a transformation that affects nearly every part of its campus.

At the core of these changes is the airport’s desire to build on its legacy of outstanding customer service by expanding and modernizing its space to better serve passengers.

The Skanska / HOK design-build team is leading the terminal and airside project, which will be complete in 2018. This project is part of an initial expansion phase that will double the capacity of the airport, which currently serves more than 17 million passengers per year, while elevating the travel experience for guests.

The design transforms the existing facility into an open and airy terminal, with primary east- and west-facing curtain wall and metal panels enveloping the terminal’s concrete aesthetic. Four outdoor terraces provide spaces for customers to relax and enjoy the breezes and sunset views.

The project adds more than 60,000 square feet of useable space—enough for a football field to fit comfortably within the existing floor plate—to the terminal’s third-floor transfer level. The project adds 38,000 square feet of enclosed new space. HOK’s design creates a unified, visually accessible space across the east-west axis. It includes retail, restaurants, a coffee bar, lounge spaces, work space for business travelers, a family zone, vertical circulation and public art. Four shuttle lobbies are being relocated.

The remainder of the project affects all public spaces, with new airside concessions spaces, new food courts, functional improvements to all gate lounges and a campus-wide art program.
