A new hotel, expected to be operated under the InterContinental brand, is planned for a site just west of the domestic terminal. Guests could walk to it from the terminal.

HOK-Led Joint Venture Designs Terminal Modernization for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

Quote:
The world’s most traveled airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, is embarking on a $6 billion, 20-year expansion and modernization program.

As part of the capital improvement program, HOK is leading the joint venture team designing a $200 million improvement to the airport’s domestic passenger terminal. Construction will begin later in 2016 and include the addition of two large canopies over curbside pick-up and drop-off areas and a redesigned central atrium space.


In 2015, the 207-gate Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport became the world’s first airport to handle more than 100 million passengers in a year, reaching a high of 101.5 million. The design of the terminal modernization will improve the passenger experience as the airport prepares to serve even more travelers in the coming decades.

“The airport’s vision is to demystify traveling through the airport and create an exceptional experience for all its guests,” said Ripley Rasmus, AIA, an HOK senior design principal and lead designer for the project. “The flexibility of our team’s design accommodates both the focused, curb-to-gate weekly business travelers and the more leisurely, casual visitors who may stop to patronize retailers and other airport amenities.”

The passenger terminal improvements begin with the creation of a curbside drop-off protected by arched canopies composed of translucent ETFE (ethylene tetrafluoroethylene) panels supported by a contemporary steel frame. The 864-foot-long canopies are designed to redefine the character of the building as a 21st-century air terminal. Additionally, the canopies provide shading to reduce heat gain and shelter travelers from the elements. New building facades will feature fritted glass panels that depict the forested character of Atlanta’s regional landscape with images of its city parks.

Inside, expansive windows flood check-in areas with natural light. The design of the 15,000-square-foot atrium presents a lush, park-like setting brightened by a circular skylight where passengers will enjoy increased seating options with easy access to power and data connections. A pavilion backdrop will serve as a bandstand for performances and airport events and will incorporate elements of the steel frame from the exterior canopies. The atrium will host several retailers and large pieces of artwork that strengthen the connection of the green space to the sky.

“The design converts the atrium from a processing space to an engaging civic area that connects visitors and travelers to Atlanta, reinforcing the airport as an ambassador for the region,” said Rasmus.

The high-performance design features energy-efficient cladding and building systems. Ceilings will be altered to improve the harvesting of natural light and to optimize interior lighting systems, which include LED lighting.

Improved circulation and signage systems will make wayfinding intuitive. A clearly marked airport security screening zone leads passengers from the atrium to concourses and gates. Improvements to the baggage claim area include highly visible digital monitors and new speaker systems.

The HOK-led joint venture for the terminal modernization includes Stanley, Love-Stanley, P.C., and Chasm Architecture, L.L.C., both headquartered in Atlanta.

The airport’s $6 billion modernization will also include improvements to concourses, hospitality and retail services, runways, cargo, parking and support facilities.

HOK’s Aviation + Transportation group designs high-performance passenger terminals, stations, intermodal facilities, automatic people mover systems, light rail systems and other transportation amenities. The firm creates exceptional passenger experiences while increasing value for owners and tenants by boosting revenue streams, improving operational efficiencies and minimizing the impact on the environment. Current and recent projects include design of LaGuardia Airport’s New Terminal B Project in New York City; Salt Lake City International Airport’s Terminal Redevelopment in Salt Lake City, Utah; the Hamad International Airport Passenger Terminal Complex in Doha, Qatar; Will Rogers World Airport’s Terminal Expansion in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Tampa International Airport’s Main Terminal and Concessions Redevelopment in Tampa, Florida; Astana International Airport’s Terminal Development in Kazakhstan; and the London Gatwick Airport Capital Investment Program.

World's Busiest Airport: Atlanta Tops the List Again



Quote:
More than 100 million people traveled through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta in 2015, its highest figure in history.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International was once again the world's busiest terminal, as more than 100 million passengers traveling through in 2015, most in airport history.

New figures released by Airport Councils International show that Atlanta saw a 5.5 percent growth in passengers from 2014.

Beijing's Capital International Airport was No. 2, serving almost 90 million passengers. Rounding out the top five were Dubai International, Chicago O'Hare, and Tokyo Haneda.

Here's the rest of the top 10:

London Heathrow
Los Angeles International
Hong Kong International
Charles de Gaulle International, Paris
Dallas Fort Worth

The organization says Atlanta owes much of its growth to Delta Air Lines, which has experienced growth in domestic markets. Beijing's growth slowed last year, keeping it in second place behind Atlanta.

Hartsfield-Jackson airport in US commences work on $6bn ATLNext plan

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) in Atlanta, Georgia, US, has commenced work on ATLNext, the airport's $6bn capital improvement plan. Under the 20-year plan, ATL will upgrade its terminal, replace parking facilities, expand cargo operations and concourses, as well as plan for a hotel and mixed-use development project.

One of the first projects in the plan includes a six-week schedule to modernise the West Crossover, the escalator corridor connecting the airport's Plane Train automated people mover system with the baggage claim areas.



A video screen will also be installed to replace the 'Spirit of Atlanta', a 70ft-wide mural of children playing at Centennial Olympic Park, to provide information to passengers moving up the escalator.

The mural will still be displayed digitally on the video screen. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport general manager Roosevelt Council Jr. said: "The ATLNext modernisation project will prepare our airport for the future.

"We'll honour our past by ensuring the Spirit of Atlanta remains, in some form, to welcome our guests for years to come." The construction project initially involves building and positioning scaffolding.

During the construction, passengers will exit the Plane Train at Concourse T and move to the baggage claim area along a revised route.

Harsfield could use a faster time frame for said improvements - 20 years is a very long time...

Also, do they break down the passenger stats by international vs domestic? The new terminal F, which is supposed to be for international flights seems empty co.pared to the rest of the airport.
