As reported by the News Herald.
HNTB Architecture, the firm that has taken over the design of the new airport facilities presented the new design ideas to the Airport Authority Thursday.
HNTB meets with the Airport Authority Board monthly and have been challenged to get the overall cost of the $30 million terminal down and make it more environmentally friendly.
One of the ways they are cutting costs is by using “stip-type” windows instead of full wall windows. This will still allow great views from the terminal, but the wall structure will not be all glass. They also plan on planting trees indigenous to Florida around the terminal building.
