Present and future Airport developments: From 2017 onwards Denver Airport is preparing to accommodate current and future growth and adderss aging infrastructure: It has set five main priorities, which include the Jeppesen Terminal, Concourses A,B & C, the Air- and Landsides (runways, taxiways, deicing, ramps, fueling; roadways, parking, rental cars); and its Real Estate.
Currently the location of TSA checkpoints are at capacity, but has no space to expand - while summer 2017 is to include 55 days of record passengers. The terminal was intended to serve only 50M (but served in 2016 58M). Aging facilities need major upgrades. Inadequate concession space is needed to accommdate future passenger growth. Airline gates reached capacity and airlines requested 30 more gates by 2020. Lastly, the ticket lobby space is underutilized and inefficient.
Proposed 'Great Hall' Components at both levels 5 & 6 are to be addressed by work on:
- Level 6 - Consolidated Ticket Lobby, New TSA Security Screening and a Bridge Connection;
- Level 5 - new Meeter-Greeter Southern Lobby and a Post-Security Concession Area.
This would decrease terminal vulnerabiltiy and increase capacity from 50 to 80M passengers by 2031/32. If gate expansion could be done, it would balance terminal capacity with new concourse capacity. Security Checkpoints throughput would increase 50-70 percent. Pre- and post-security passenger experience would be enhanced. More Concessions would increase terminal revenue. Upgrades are to be made to mechanical & electrical systems, as well as to escalators, elevators, restrooms ticketing and sceening technology.
