The City of Midland was seeking a new facility that would offer travelers a welcome to the Permian Basin, and convey the image of a progressive business-oriented city while conveying the sense of flight associated with air travel.


The form of the building with its metal-skinned vaulted roofs evokes the shape and material of the airplane wing. Clerestory windows where vaulted roofs meet allow light to flow into the vast, open terminal interior. Exposed three-dimensional steel trusses supporting the arching roofs further evoke the structure of an airplane.

Associated elements in the project included covered parking structures with arched metal roofs, several walkways and canopies, and the renovation of existing parking ticket booths to tie-in aesthetically with the new terminal.


Interior materials include areas of granite with carpeted floors in public areas. Walls are accented with travertine, with areas of horizontal banding of color to resemble the geological strata so vital to the oil industry in the region. Large, arched, perforated metal light reflectors add horizontal and visual interest in the lobby, ticketing and baggage claim areas. Perforated metal is also used in a decorative and functional way in mechanical grillwork and under soffit areas of the drive-up canopy.


In 2009, after having nearly 5 million passengers travel through the Terminal Building, a renovation project was developed to address elements of the Terminal that were showing signs of age and use. Overall the Terminal was still in very good shape.


The renovation included replacing the carpet in the lobby and concourse areas. Rather than going back with carpet in the lobby and the walking areas of the concourse, Terrazzo was used to provide durable, long-lasting flooring. The use of Terrazzo allowed the design of a pattern in the flooring to further complement the existing travertine accents. The design pattern on the lobby level used the full length of the lobby to create the look of geological strata that was representative of the history of the Permian Basin and the oil industry.


The security checkpoint received modifications to align with the current operational process of TSA that wasn’t in place when the Terminal Building was originally constructed. Expansion of the passenger queueing area to accommodate more passengers and adjustment of glass security walls were some of the enhancements made to the security checkpoint.


In addition to the flooring improvements, all the exterior glass was replaced with newer technology for energy efficiency. Most of the mechanical systems were either refurbished or replaced, including replacement of all the inbound and outbound baggage belts and updating of the large revolving entry doors to the Terminal. The aircraft passenger boarding bridges received new carpet and the mechanical systems refurbished.


The vehicle parking exit booths didn’t get left out of the renovation. The booths were updated with new millwork, flooring, paint, lighting and exterior sliding glass windows. Providing an efficient and safe working environment for the employees in the parking booths.
