Freese and Nichols is leading Program Management efforts for the $3.2-billion Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program (TRIP) including rehabilitation/renovation of the four original terminal areas (A, B, C and E) and ancillary facilities and structures. These buildings are approximately 40 years old and primarily consist of original structures and building systems.
TRIP is planned to provide for a complete renovation of the facilities, including replacing all internal building systems to provide a 30-year useful life, along with other high-value operational improvements that will benefit the airport, airlines, tenants, and passengers by enhancing operational efficiency, regulatory compliance, passenger processing and aesthetic appearance.
New commuter rail stations for Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and Fort Worth Transportation Authority (FWTA) will also be built during TRIP. The existing parking garage structures will be renovated and all three of the parking structures at Terminal A will be replaced with a new, larger enhanced parking structure that includes an advanced parking guidance system.
