Love Field Modernization

The City of Dallas and Southwest created the Love Field Modernization Program, a public/private partnership established to finance and implement the modernization. The resulting $519 million LFMP is a comprehensive reconstruction of the existing terminal complex , landside roadways, and airside apron areas to provide a single new twenty gate concourse, a new ticketing wing, a new bag claim wing, and an expanded and completely renovated main lobby building. As Master Architect, Corgan was responsible for programming, concept planning, and design coordination for the entire Program, and for full architectural and engineering design services for reconstruction of the terminal complex from Schematic Design through on-site Construction Administration. Corgan planning and design also included construction phasing plans and temporary facilities needed to maintain uninterrupted operations of all existing gates and terminal functions throughout the entire construction process. Corgan also led a USGBC certification process with the goal of LEED Silver certification. Both design and construction are on schedule and under the original Program budget. Design of the project began in 2007 and was completed in 2009. Construction began in 2010. A twelve gate portion of the new concourse opened for operations in April 2013, following completion of the new ticketing hall, expanded and renovated main lobby building, new passenger screening facilities, new outbound BHS and bag screening facilities, new airport-wide information technology and access security systems, and portions of new curbside areas in 2012. The new bag claim wing and the remaining eight gate portion of the new concourse will open in October 2014.
