Building: Austin-Bergstrom International Airport Terminal East Infill
Location: Austin, TX
Completion: Under Construction
Structural Engineer: Architectural Engineers Collaborative
Architect: PageSoutherlandPage
Contractor: Hensel Phelps

AE Interest:
Intended to be a signature space to host additional passenger security checkpoints, baggage handling, and customs facilities, the 55,000-sf addition is designed on an ovoid plan nestled into the north side of the existing terminal. The new building features a curved glass façade, punctuated by slender steel shading fins; the depth of the individual fins is varied by plan location, in order to maximize their efficiency. Each shading fin is mounted on a perimeter column. The exposed structural columns are comprised of slender built-up steel box sections. The roof structure utilizes the same shape in slender box beams, exposed and framed with seamless connections into a center spine. Spanning 200 feet, the spine features a curved profile that gives the main roof a distinct and complex contour.
