HNTB to design new international terminal in Tampa

Design-build team will deliver the first new terminal at TPA since 2005

TAMPA, Fla. (May 12, 2023) – The Hensel Phelps Design-Build Team consisting of Hensel Phelps, HNTB Corporation, Gensler and The Beck Group has been selected by the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority to design and construct the new Airside D international terminal at Tampa International Airport.

Continuing the multi-phased implementation of the airport master plan, Airside D will provide 16 gates to serve both domestic and international flights, allowing the airport to accommodate an additional 13 million passengers. The 560,000-square-foot airside terminal will include concessions space, TSA and CBP security facilities, and will incorporate the newest technologies for bag screening, gate check-in and baggage processing. An automated shuttle will connect Airside D to the main terminal.

HNTB is the lead design firm and will oversee all design services, including the new airside terminal, airfield design, main terminal ticketing area modifications, the shuttle guideway and station and civil utilities.

“HNTB is thrilled to continue our partnership with Hensel Phelps and the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority to deliver this iconic project. It is a privilege to work alongside the Authority as they continue their legacy of innovation, exceptional customer experience and world-class facilities,” said Len Becker, PE, HNTB senior vice president and West Florida office leader.

HNTB and Hensel Phelps recently partnered to deliver the widely praised and awarded Blue Express Curbside project at Tampa International Airport, which continues to set the standard for airport efficiency and unparalleled passenger experience.
