The Terminal Expansion Capacity Program for the Myrtle Beach International Airport demonstrated a need to develop a new terminal for airport operations and additional gates to serve the increased passenger load. The $129 million project, governed by a tight budget and site parameters, includes a new ticketing lobby, baggage claim, baggage handling, TSA screening, a new 5 gate concourse and connector bridge to existing concourse with an additional gate integrated into the bridge to maximize the efficiency of circulation space.

The comprehensive design approach brings clarity to the overall circulation pattern and minimizes passenger distances traveled. The buildings morphology resulted from careful environmental and climactic studies introducing solar shading, natural lighting, and displacement ventilation for occupancy comfort and energy efficiency. The building form alone reduces the overall energy requirements by 14% from a baseline developed by the existing terminal energy usage over the previous 30 months.
