Washington Dulles International Airport Tier 2

Herndon, VA / Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates PC

This project will provide a new midfield terminal for United Airlines at Dulles Airport, a hub for the airline. The portion now completed is the Aerotrain (underground automated people mover) station for the future terminal. The specifications included the unique security requirements associated with work at Dulles Airport, and a custom glass and steel enclosure for the Aerotrain tunnel at the platform. Based on the project team’s thoroughness of design and documentation, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has made the enclosure the standard design for future such enclosures at the airport.
