Airport Terminal Redevelopment

About this project

The existing terminal at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport, located in Romulus, Michigan, was designed and built with the intent of handling only a few million passengers per year. By 2008, over 35 million passengers per year were passing through the airport. The airport terminal expansion transformed the eleventh busiest airport in the world into a state-of-the-art facility.

The project scope included the design of a two-level, 27-gate terminal. A new 700,000 sq ft footprint included amenities such as boutiques and restaurants scattered throughout the facility along with ticket areas, luggage check-in, modern baggage carousels, security checkpoints, and other airport functions. It connects to an existing parking deck by an enclosed skywalk. The terminal’s linear design enables faster, more efficient and time-saving convenience for travelers.

Sigma provided design services for secondary distribution power and lighting. The design also included the electrical layout of the inbound/outbound baggage handling system, with an automated explosive detection system designed to screen 100% of the baggage.
