  1. 1. Austin-Bergstrom International Airport: Terminal East Infill LEED Performance Report BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OFFICE OF THE CITY ARCHITECT
  2. 2. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The following Performance Reports were created in accordance with Council Resolution 20071129-045. The City of Austin is a recognized international leader in sustainable building practices in which municipal building strive to conserve energy, water, and other natural resources while promoting human health and safety. The holistic approach to architecture creates high-quality and enduring structures that enhance the economic value and reduce the lifecycle costs of a building. Design and construction of buildings are driven by the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) guidelines and promote these goals. The following reports provide information about municipal buildings, highlight LEED credentials, and promote sustainable building achievements.

  5. 5. AUSTIN-BERGSTROM INT. AIRPORT TERMINAL EAST INFILL 3600 Presidential Blvd, Austin, TX, 78719 LEEDv2009 BD+C: New Construction AWARDED LEED SILVER SEPT 2017 PAGE SOUTHERLAND PAGE ARCHITECTS As airline transportation increases and efficiency in travel improves, the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) Terminal East Infill project sought to improve the passenger experience as they navigate their travel. Areas of expansion include the security screening, ticketing, and baggage to grow the international arrivals processing from 100 to 600 passengers per hour. While the project increases traffic, the design is still able to enhance the quality of passenger flow by reducing the wait time. Most importantly, the Terminal East Infill increases connectivity within the airport ticketing and gates. The Terminal East Infill is a redevelopment of a previous military base. The expansion turns what was otherwise underdeveloped and unusable land into an expansion of the airport to facilitate travel and growth. The reformation of the entrance to the airport includes a multi-story curtain wall with colorful accents. Natural daylight floods the ticketing and processing area, allowing a stimulating experience for occupants. The site provides the community with alternative forms of transportation and a large amount of green space. The overall carbon footprint is reduced through the implementation of renewable energy. All factors of design optimize the thermal comfort to create a building with consistent temperature year-round and provide visitors with a pleasant experience as they commence their journey.
