MWA led the design team for a sustainable modernization and upgrades to the passenger experience for 1950’s era Oakland International Airport Terminal 1. As part of the Port of Oakland’s “Moving Modern” program, this renovation earned LEED ID+C for Commercial Interiors Gold certification. Terminal 1 contains the ticketing and baggage claim operations, 9 airlines, 16 boarding gates and US Customs and Immigration facilities for international flights.
One of the fastest growing airports in North America, the priority was to upgrade the outdated infrastructure while allowing the airport and security functions to remain in operation. This included seismic improvements and creating a temporary security checkpoint.
