Spokane International Airport will be undergoing what it describes as its most expensive construction project in history to meet growing passenger demand.
The airport broke ground Thursday on the first phase of its $150 million terminal expansion and renovation project – or TREX.
The project calls for a 144,000-square-foot expansion that will add three new gates and six airline ticket counter locations in Terminal C. On the east side of the concourse, current ground boarding gates will be replaced with three passenger loading bridges with upgrades to existing gates.
The terminal also will receive upgrades to its heating, venting and air conditioning system, in addition to security improvements, according to the airport.
Minnesota-based Architectural Alliiance International and Wolfe Architectural Group, of Spokane, are designing the project. Spokane-based Garco Construction and Q&D Construction of Sparks, Nevada, are the project contractors.
