Terminal A at San Antonio International Airport is currently being constructed and designed to bring the 31-year-old area out of its vintage days and up to 2014 standards. According to a recent article in Airport Improvement, RS&H Project Manager Pat Hargrove, who led the design and architectural planning for the renovation, said the mechanical systems had reached the end of their useful life, and aesthetically the terminal could not match up to the bright, shiny and new Terminal B.

The first phase is nearly complete and phase two is set to begin the end of this summer with construction slated for 2015. The second, and final, phase will bring the customs area on the lower level up to the terminal’s new standards with updated flooring, wall treatments and larger restrooms. Lighting on the 35-foot-high barrel ceiling in the ticketing lobby will also be improved.

The airport’s Aviation Director Frank Miller said, “Travelers are very pleased with the look of the building. And the airlines say it has made their operations better. It’s been a very positive response all around.”
