Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Terminal DDallas/Fort Worth, Texas
As lead design architect in collaboration with HKS and Corgan, HNTB was responsible for the design of all project components of DFW Terminal D — a new 1.9 million-sqaure-foot international terminal complex. The project scope included widely diverse elements such as an immigration and customs hall, two ticketing halls, a 23-gate concourse, 8,100-car parking structure, an inter-terminal skybridge and the landside roadway configuration. Three sets of gates are sized to accommodate the new Airbus A380.
DFW is one of the largest airport point-of-entry locations in the United States and processes close to 37,000 passengers daily. Three screening checkpoints with 14 passenger screening lanes allow for 172 travelers to be processed per hour per lane, equaling up to 2,400 per hour for the terminal. Similarly, the customs processing check point allows for up to 2,800 passengers per peak hour which equals 19,000 travelers a day. HNTB also performed full Federal Inspection Services/Customs and Border Protection design.
