New airport canopies
welcome travelers

M

ore than 107 million travelers pass through
the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International
Airport, making it the busiest airport in the
world. With all of the traffic, airport management
developed a plan to renew existing facilities,
enhancing the airport's aesthetic appeal and
ensuring the best possible customer service.
Called ATLNext, the plan calls for a series
of projects that will be implemented over the
next two decades. One of the first projects was
revamping the Central Passenger Terminal
Complex facility for domestic passengers. This
included building canopies over both the north
and south sides of the domestic terminal that
would cover eight lanes of traffic as well as
pedestrian walkways going to and from the
parking ramps and the terminal.
The airport worked with design-build
contractor FabriTec Structures to create and
construct the enormous tensile canopies,
each measuring 194 feet wide by 874 feet long.
Consisting of pressurized double-layered ETFE
cushions, the membranes were mounted on
frameworks made of a total of 3,500 tons of
steel and aluminum.
FabriTec began construction on the north
structure in October 2017 and followed with
the south edifice in October 2018. Because the
airport is so busy, special care was taken to keep
inconvenience at a minimum. The construction
crew worked nonpeak hours and nighttime shifts
whenever possible.
The massive canopies are a beacon to visitors
arriving by car or plane both day or night. Each
membrane is embedded with 1,938 LED lights
that can be programmed with a variety of colors.
The canopies can also display special patterns
for holidays and events. For more information,
