NEWARK, March 19, 2018 – GRIMSHAW, in partnership with STV as Lead Design Firm, have been selected to serve as the Lead Design Architect with the joint venture team of Tutor Perini/Parsons for the $1.41 billion terminal at Newark Liberty International Airport. The team was chosen by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey based on its combined experience and expertise in the successful delivery of design-build projects.

The new Newark Airport Terminal One will feature 1 million square feet of space with 33 gates spread across a two-level T-shaped building. The design, is intended to accommodate the airport’s growing capacity while meeting the changing demands of passengers and airlines for years to come. Once completed in 2022, Terminal One will replace the adjacent Terminal A building and will include additional amenities, a more efficient check in process and ample space for passenger amenities and an efficient security screening process.

Passenger volume at the existing Terminal A is expected to increase by 23 percent over the next five years and by a third by 2032. The flexibility built into Terminal One’s overall design will allow for future modifications and expansion.

The project is the largest transportation infrastructure design-build contract in New Jersey state history and is expected to begin construction in April.

The most successful contemporary airports of today have a clear vision for the future in anticipation of change. Terminal 1 will position EWR to successfully accommodate a rapidly changing industry and unprecedented levels of growth.  New technologies, and systems will continue to appear as the aviation world continues to evolve, and the new Terminal 1 will be able to embrace the challenge of adaptation as EWR expands over time.

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 1 will be a world-class gateway serving an ambassadorial role for the New Jersey and New York region and establish a new trajectory for the future.”
