Bishop International Airport Terminal Expansion

The Bishop International Airport Authority retained RS&H to create a dynamic, new facility with the flexibility to meet future growth. The terminal color and material palette reflects a contemporary image inspired by the local automotive heritage. RS&H also designed an additional four gates and associated hold room area.

Another expansion project designed by RS&H has nearly doubled the size of the ticketing lobby, improved the building automation system and communication infrastructure, doubled the handling capacity of baggage claim, and incorporated a computerized access control system and EDS-based baggage screening system.

RS&H created high-quality renderings of the project so that the client, public, and other project stakeholders could better visualize the design. These visualizations aided in making final adjustments, including changing the final finishes and other design elements. The final renderings were also used as a public art display during construction, so the public could visualize what the airport would look like when completed.

The terminal has been honored with numerous awards, including Michigan DOT’s Project of the Year and the American Institute of Architects’ Project of the Year. RS&H was also selected as MDOT’s Consultant of the Year. Additionally, the airport authority’s new logo was inspired by the strong side profile of the terminal roofline.
