Grimshaw lands Newark airport role

  • Comment

Grimshaw and US design giant STV are to design a $1.4 billion (£1 billion) terminal building for Newark Liberty International Airport

The pair were named as lead design architect and lead design firm respectively for the 90,000m2 scheme.

Both practices have studios in New York close to the New Jersey airport. They will work on the project with a joint venture of construction firm Tutor Perini and engineering giant Parsons.

Terminal One, backed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, will replace the adjacent Terminal A building, where passenger volume is expected to increase by 23 per cent over the next five years.

Terminal One will include efficient check-in and security processes and space for passenger amenities. It will feature 33 gates spread across a two-level, T-shaped building and has been designed to accommodate the airport’s growing capacity.

Grimshaw partner Mark Husser said: ‘We are delighted to have been selected for this landmark opportunity to help transform the passenger experience.

‘Newark has a rich architectural history, dominated by the modular concrete structures of the existing terminals.

‘Relating to this context while creating a light, modern, steel-and-glass building with open sight-lines and natural light, the new Terminal One will be a world-class gateway serving an ambassadorial role for the New Jersey and New York region and will establish a new trajectory for the future.’

Construction is expected to get under way in the coming weeks and to complete by 2022.

Grimshaw last year scooped the prized project to redevelop New York’s famous John F Kennedy airport.
