Part of: International Air Transportation: A New International Airport


Denver's new airport uses the services of over 80 separate design firms. The existing airport, Stapleton, could not be expanded to meet the forecasted demand of 1,200,000 operations with the resultant land requirement of 53 square miles. The land need was satisfied in Denver's northeast quadrant adjacent to and outside of the planned circumferential highway. The airport is composed of an east and west landside building joined by an atrium structure; three of an ultimate five airside buildings; automated underground people and baggage moving systems and five of an ultimate twelve runways. The design and construction efforts are divided into five phases - site preparation, roadways, airfield, buildings and utilities.
