Allison Hawk, NCARB
Pushing boundaries with innovation, exploring new concepts
and incorporating the latest technology - these are the aspects
of the airport industry that excite Allison Hawk in her work.
" I love the concept of connecting people and making an
impact for the public; from large airports like Atlanta to
regional airports with only two gates. " Hawk said.
Hawk has been utilizing her skills at HNTB Corp. for four years
on complex projects, helping shape innovative, efficient and
creative design solutions that meet airport's needs while
enhancing the passenger experience. Her portfolio of work
includes airport projects across the U.S., including IAH, OAK,

Early in her career at HNTB,
my unique skill sets to it.
Hawk worked with Tampa to
help draft the airport's master

plan update and develop the programming, planning and
architectural concepts for the landside and airside terminals,
including the main terminal and the future Airside D gates.
Two years later, she found herself back at TPA to implement
the design of that plan.
Hawk and the HNTB team presented design ideas and
details to airport staff, providing them the confidence and
information essential to make informed decisions on the
new groundbreaking " Express Curb " concept. As lead aviation
architect, she facilitated the design team to generate this
unique innovation for enhanced customer service - which
allows passengers with only carry-on bags to completely
bypass the airline check-in lobby.
" I was able to use my historical knowledge from the master
plan and bring it to the design process. Now the work is under
construction. It's so exciting to see something that we've been
planning and designing for so long finally being built. " Hawk
Outside of work, Hawk has mentored students at the
University of Kansas and developed an Aviation 101
presentation for airport terminal planning and design. She
offered project reviews and coached students for their
presentation to a panel of professional architects.
