Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport Seismic Upgrade

  • Location Anchorage, AK
  • Client RIM Architects
  • Owner Alaska State Department of Transportation
  • A + B = C

    Concourses A and B were brought up to the standard of service enjoyed by the newer Concourse C at the Airport.

  • Smart Delivery Approach

    A CM-at-risk contracting mechanism smoothed the way for early conflict resolution between design and construction.

Visitors flying into Anchorage can only tell the difference between concourses by their number, not their age. This project was a major seismic renovation of the main terminal at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. Seismic retrofit and design updates to Concourses A and B, as well as the Ticket Lobby transformed the quality and safety experience of the traveler to match that of the newest Concourse C. In the high risk seismic zone that is Anchorage, the airport is designed to be safer in the event of an earthquake. Improvements to the baggage handling and screening, energy efficient heating and ventilation, and telecommunications and security systems are also achieved in this renovation project.

Reid Middleton designed the seismic retrofit as a subconsultant to RIM Architects, the lead design firm. Other key team members included HNTB as the aviation planning and design consultant, Parsons Brinkerhoff as the program manager, and PCL as the Construction Manager-at-Risk who built the new structural and seismic upgrades as well as architectural elements and building infrastructure.
