The three-story, 330,000 SF Charleston International Airport was built in 1985, and serves as the primary airport for Charleston, South Carolina. Over the years, the existing facility layout, operations and building system infrastructure all became inefficient and obsolete. The Terminal Redevelopment and Improvement Program (TRIP) addressed these issues by completely renovating and expanding the facility into an efficient, modern airport with the ability to keep pace with the rapidly growing economy and tourism in the Charleston area. Two new building additions totaling approximately 100,000 SF were added, one to each concourse, increasing the overall size of the airport. These additions allowed for eight new gates to be added to the concourses, almost doubling the number of current gates. Renovations included all new buildings MEP/FP engineering systems to serve the terminal building, as well as a new central security checkpoint, ticketing, concessions, baggage, and other passenger amenities.
