3DReid has designed all aspects of an airfield’s operation; from logistics, operational and support buildings to passenger terminals and has a keen understanding of the political, business and stakeholder drivers. We have in-depth experience of designing airport facilities, both airside operations and landside facilities including car parking and logistics. We have worked closely with main contractors under design and build contracts to deliver new build, extensions and refurbishment of international hub and regional airports.
Our UK airport experience covers over 20 airports from Aberdeen to Southampton and includes small civil airports, executive terminals (FBO’s) and major hubs including framework positions for both Heathrow and Gatwick. We have worked across a number of major airports globally including a new airport in Brazil, Gibraltar; Abu Dhabi International Airport; Antigua; Libya; Hong Kong International Airport and a major terminal redevelopment for Male International Airport in the Maldives.
3DReid has established a strong reputation for terminal refurbishments, building a portfolio of complex projects that enhance the passenger experience, from drop-off and interchange facilities, through check-in and security; immigration and departures lounges to piers, satellites and air-bridges. We have also designed a number of baggage facilities including the Transfer Baggage Facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport and various facilities across Heathrow Terminals 1, 3 and 5; Gatwick Airport and Birmingham Airport.
We also specialise in the design of Fixed Base Operations executive terminals and Air Traffic Control towers, designing a number of award winning facilities for both uses at airports around the world.
We understand the specific challenges of working within live, passenger facing environments, where it is essential to minimise the impact of construction works on the airport operations and passenger experience and to ensure high standards of health and safety are maintained at all times.

The Aviation Industry, as any other sector, does not stand still. Advancing technology, passenger expectations of service quality and bigger, newer planes are driving much of the aviation work that 5plus architects is delivering.
As a consequence we do not consider ourselves just aviation architects. We are creative problem solvers that question established thinking in everything that we do. Through our highly skilled designers we are able to offer sector leading commercial solutions along with cutting edge innovation.
We work on a variety of aviation focused projects, large and small, glamourous and mundane, where our masterplanning, architectural and interior design skills bring added value.
Our work engages the full range of stakeholders; The passenger, the airport, the airlines, the retailers and the wider community. The passenger is central, without whom there are no journeys, no flights or airports. Our projects give delight, work technically and offer best value for money. They also improve the passenger experience and the sustainability of air travel.
Our recent commissions include the upgraded passenger experience from check-in to IDL at Stansted and East Midlands Airports, the Escape Lounges in 4 locations nationwide, a new arrivals terminal at Bournemouth Airport, the Masterplan for Airport City Manchester, and various projects at Leeds Bradford, London Luton and Heathrow Airports.
