N O W U N D E R WAY Huntsville transforms baggage claim A T T H E F I N A L leg of its fiveyear, $92 million capital improvement construction project, the complete renovation and expansion of baggage claim at Huntsville International Airport broke ground on Aug. 11. Designed by Chapman Sisson Architects, the more than $24 million project was awarded to G.W. Yates & Sons Construction based in Philadelphia, Miss. The project will significantly expand the current baggage claim footprint and transform the space to mirror the look and feel of the new public waiting area with vaulted, arched ceilings and a completely glass front façade. In addition to encompassing three new baggage carousels, the space will serve as the future home to the airport’s Visitors’ Center. Also in keeping with the new public waiting area, the new baggage claim will feature a video wall jumbotron. Expanded rental car offices, which will be relocated to the east end of the property, a Huntsville community mural and other numerous amenities will add to the modern-day design aimed at meeting the community’s increasing transportation needs. ■ Huntsville’s renovated and expanded baggage claim will emulate the look of the new public waiting area.
