Nashville International Airport (BNA) Terminal Lobby and International Arrivals Facility (IAF)
Nashville International Airport (BNA) is the fastest growing airport in the United States with over 18 million passengers annually and more than 600 flights each day in 2019. Even still, the airport expects to continue experiencing this sharp increase in travelers over the next five years, anticipating over 23 million passengers annually.
To keep up with this impressive growth rate, the airport developed a comprehensive renovation and expansion plan. This substantial plan, BNA Vision, is expected to be complete in 2023. Among the many projects associated with this $1.4 billion plan are a new terminal garage, the renovation of the terminal lobby, an additional concourse, nearby roadway improvements, and an on-site hotel.
Due to the unprecedented growth, BNA has developed another plan, BNA Vision 2.0, for projects from 2024-2028 with an anticipated budget of $1.4 billion.
Barge is serving as a subcontractor to Hensel Phelps on Project 3, a 440,000 square foot progressive design-build central terminal and International Arrivals Facility (IAF). Portions of this phased project are under construction while other parts are in the design phase. The project is expected to be complete in 2023.
The upgraded central terminal will include a new marketplace, a 24-lane security checkpoint (doubling current capacity), ample natural light, and expansive views of the airfield. The IAF will include six new gates and a new U.S. Customs and Border Protection area.
Barge is responsible for providing the airside civil engineering design services for the IAF, situated between BNA’s Concourses B and C. Our scope of work includes the demolition and restoration of the existing aircraft parking apron and trench drains (approximately 7,500 square yards of PCC ramp pavement) in conformance with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) guidelines.
