The Indianapolis Airport was designed by the HOK architectural practice with Hunter Douglas as manufacturers bringing the project up to contemporary standards with a curved roof and increased mobility, security features and functionality.
The airport is at a distance of 16 miles from the city center and it is between two main runways. The central element of the terminal is the Civic Plaza with a design that is inspired by the Monument Circle in the city and it has a 200 feet wide skylight, retail stores while also acting as a public event space with artworks incorporated.
There are 40 gates equipped to fit different aircraft sizes and all the ticketing, check-in activities, baggage claim, US Customs and Border Protections facilities are located into the terminal with a total surface of 1.2 million square feet.
The new terminal offered an opportunity to increase the sustainable features of the airport and thus energy management systems were integrated by the Hunter Douglas Architectural Products.
