Through its innovative and effective design and engineering solutions, this expansion greatly enhances the travel experience for visitors and members of the South Bend community. The 45,000‐square‐foot addition includes five new gates and multiple passenger amenities. The exposed, steel‐framed barrel vault structure simulates the structure of an aircraft wing while the translucent panel roof, clerestory and continuous glass curtain wall systems bathe the concourse in natural light. Complexities included integration into an existing structure and working within strict security requirements of an operational airport.
