MBS International Airport

The cities of Midland, Bay City, and Saginaw, Michigan, share a joint commission that operates the MBS International Airport. The interior is finished with white pine and copper, reflecting the natural resources of the area and providing a warm contrast to the refined technology of the building’s envelope.  Sustainable design strategies include the use of energy-efficient systems and a dramatic roof design to allow for an even distribution of natural light.

RS&H produced multiple bid packages to meet the schedules for the various funding sources. The team coordinated extensively between the many phases of the project through detailed meetings with the airport, tenants, funding agencies, and contractors. RS&H’s funding experts also took a leadership role in getting this project funded.

In 2013, the Michigan Department of Transportation's Office of Aeronautics named MBS International Airport as the Michigan Airport of the Year.  Read the full story in Midland Daily News.
