At Philadelphia International Airport in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Terminals D and E have reopened after a renovation and expansion designed by DDI Architects, PC of Philadelphia, in association withOdell Associates. The $300 million project included the addition of a new four-story, 210,000-square-foot (20,000-square-meter) connector building between the terminals. DDI affiliate firm Daroff Design Incperformed interior design.

The terminal expansion project began shortly after the attacks of September 11, 2001 to enhance security operations and facilitate the screening process. The revamped D/E terminal now offers a new centralized and expanded security checkpoint, including 14 screening lanes, along with offices, 23 new ticket counter positions, ample public circulation areas, and dozens of new retail and food outlets. The expanded Terminal E features a rotunda-style hammerhead form with three new gates for Southwest Airlines.

The Philadelphia-based project team also included O’Donnell and Naccarato, Brinjac Engineering, Urban Engineers, Synterra, WF Design Group, Gilbane Building Co, McKissack Group, and Robert C. Henry, P.E., facilities manager for Southwest Airlines Co.  Posted in ARCHITECTUREWEEK.
