Transportation facilities, particularly airports, help give off the first impression of cities and can have a huge impact for first-time visitors with its design. These projects are accompanied by multiple collaboration sessions to determine what the goals are for the final product, what we are looking to communicate through our design, and how we can best serve the community’s current and future needs. We enjoy working on these projects because of the personal connections that are formed with these facilities and we feel that these projects help us give back to the communities surrounding them. These facilities are usually the most used within a community, making our job as the designer and project manager that much more impactful.
Because so many of these transportation facilities are operating 24/7/365, we have to be creative with our timing schedule to get the project done in a timely manner, but without interrupting the staff or guests who are utilizing the space. There is also a unique set of requirements and skills needed to successfully lead a transportation facility project that can only be acquired through many years of experience. Through the years, Lindsey Architecture has continued to learn the changing and adapting regulations of the industry, as well as perfected the ability to keep up with trends to design a transportation hub that will serve the members of the surrounding community for years to come.
