Passenger Terminal Today - Dan Symonds
Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in Texas has opened four new gates at the south end of Terminal C.
Known as the High C Gates, Gates C35-C39 were built utilizing the latest innovation in modular construction and engineering. The gates were constructed off-site, then transported overnight into place to allow for the inside finishes to begin. Modular construction reduced the time needed to build the gates, reducing the impact on customers.
Due to the collaborative approach with DFW constructing the shell and core of the terminal and American Airlines constructing the finishes of the interior, the High C gates were completed under budget and four months ahead of schedule. Gate C33 will be renovated as part of this project and will open as C35, once renovations are complete this summer.
