Kraus-Anderson completes first phase of terminal construction at Falls International Airport, Minnesota


The Bemidji office of US-based construction company Kraus-Anderson has completed the construction of phase one of the passenger air service terminal building at Falls International Airport (INL) in Minnesota, US.

Slated to open for passengers tomorrow, the new $10m phase one project has been developed to replace nearly two-thirds of the old terminal.

It is part of a two-phase project designed by architecture, planning and interiors company, Alliiance, to build a new replacement terminal building spanning an area of 17,894ft².

The first phase of the project provides passengers with latest arrival and departure services that include new ticketing counters and kiosks, a passenger boarding bridge, secured gate lounge, TSA screening area, baggage handling, car rental services, and a public lobby/waiting area.

"Phase two of the terminal building development project, which is funded separately, will complete the full replacement work of the old terminal."

Other major designers involved in the project include SEH providing ongoing civil engineering services for the commission, LHB offering electrical engineering services, and Bartlett / ABE / UHL for mechanical engineering works.

Phase two of the terminal building development project, which is funded separately, will complete the full replacement work of the old terminal.

It will offer space for US Customs processing and will feature a weather bureau office, transportation security administration (TSA) offices, as well as an airport commission conference room.

Construction work on the second phase of the project is slated to start in spring next year and is expected to be completed in March 2019.
