The Central Wisconsin Airport (CWA) wanted terminal users to enjoy more space, a brighter interior, modern conveniences, and use as much of the existing terminal as possible. Our aviation architects and building engineers assisted the airport in developing its master plan, then implementing it through program management over the course of 10 years.
In managing the program, our team carefully planned project phases to match available funding. Because amounts changed regularly, the team annually revisited the coming projects to adjust where necessary. Often, this required shifting the construction priority to gain Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval, knowing that the FAA only approves completed projects. Through this approach, the final designs reflected the architectural vision and engineering requirements necessary to successfully complete nine separate construction packages in seven years.
Additionally, when the Central Wisconsin Regional Airport needed a car rental facility, we designed it to complement the sleek design of the main airport building. The facility mirrors the airport with its sloping rooflines and open-air feel. Our team members chose aesthetically pleasing materials and designed high ceilings to create a visually warm and comfortable waiting space.
