After careful planning, the design has been completed for the Akron-Canton Airport Security Checkpoint Expansion. SōL Harris/Day has worked with multiple regulatory agencies including the TSA, FAA, restaurant consultants, Summit County Health Department and the City of Green Fire Department to incorporate the latest standards and technology in these new designs.
In an effort to accommodate the increased flow of passengers, a new open restaurant and concession area has been designed to draw travelers into that space along with a new TSA security screening area that will be expanded to integrate new body scanning devices and additional lanes. A detailed phasing plan was developed and the project was designed to keep the restaurants and security areas in operation for the duration of the project.
The coordination with the restaurant consultants has allowed for the re-use of much of the existing equipment which has allowed for the cost savings to be used to enhance the entry lobby area for CAK travelers.
This next phase of the CAK Airport's 2018 Improvement Plan has recently gone out for bid. Look for more improvements and growth at the Akron-Canton Airport as they create "a better way to go."
