Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport is implementing a project to replace Terminal D with the new Mickey Leland International Terminal (MLIT) by 2024.
The estimated USD1.3 billion project includes demolition, renovation, and reconfiguration of the existing Terminal D; new access and airside roads; car parking facilities; a new Federal Inspection Services (FIS) facility; and infrastructure for check-in, passenger processing, and baggage reclaim. MLIT will also operate a centralised security checkpoint, and the baggage-handling system (BHS) will need to be expanded.
Fentress Architects is the MLIT project architect/engineer, and the Austin Gilbane Joint Venture is construction manager. Houston City Council is selecting architecture, engineering, and construction contractors for the FIS.
