Work has begun on a terminal façade and ticketing lobby renovation project at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport in Ohio, USA.
The multi-phased project will include: upgrades to the exterior ‘skin’ structural panels above the upper and lower roadway frontage sidewalk areas; enhancements to lighting; replaced exterior frontage glass; and renovated canopy ceilings, structural columns, doorway vestibules and sidewalk areas. The terminal ticketing lobby will also be revamped with improvements to the lighting, skylight systems, checkpoints and color schemes.
Upgrades will take place on the baggage claim level as well with improvements to the windows, entry vestibules, exterior soffits and lighting. Other improvements outside of baggage claim include a new canopy which will shelter passengers waiting for shuttles on the center island.
Ricky Smith, airport director for Cleveland Hopkins Airport, said, “The airport is the first and last impression visitors get when coming to Cleveland. We’re looking to improve that impression. During the construction there will be inconveniences, but we assure our passengers the finished project will meet their expectations. Meanwhile, we will take every step to minimize any inconvenience, while progressing the project to schedule.”
