March 13 Presentation
MOA Presentation to City Council 


The City of Houston is one of the most diverse and dynamic metropolitan regions in the United States and a key aspect of that strength is the expansive level of global connectivity  made possible by international air service at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).  Houston’s flagship airport facility connects the city to almost 70 individual airports located across the globe and standing at the epicenter of this vital international operation is the Mickey Leland Terminal Building at IAH, otherwise known as “Terminal D.”

Terminal D serves as the primary global gateway facility for air travelers in the Houston region but unfortunately, it does not adequately reflect Houston’s current standing as a world leader in business and quality of life offered to its residents.  It is with this reality in mind, that leaders with the Houston Airport System are moving forward with a dramatic and detailed plan to completely overhaul the Terminal D building at IAH.  The existing structure will remain operational throughout the renovation project, but the end result will be a thorough list of aesthetic and operational changes that impact virtually every corner of the terminal building.


In an effort to maximize community participation and pre-planning efficiency, HAS team members held a “Terminal D Industry Day” on March 13, 2014.  At this meeting, various representatives from the construction industry were given a detailed briefing on the plans to move forward with the Terminal D project.  Information passed along at this meeting included:

-  Overview of Terminal B North project (explanation that this is a United Airlines project)
-  General phasing plans for project
-  Explanation of key design aspects (emphasis on lighting, “sense of place,” etc.)
-  Discussion of funding/management mechanisms
-  Timeline for program launch and completion
