San Diego International Airport


A renovation of all food, beverage and merchandise areas within both the East and West Terminals, including new Terminal 2, at the San Diego International Airport. This renovation has transformed the airport’s concession areas into themes mirroring San Diego’s personality. Since the airport is a 24-hour facility, construction coordination was critical. Working closely with Port officials and airport management, Highland was responsible for all design coordination, construction management and DBE compliance. The project included a combination of new facility spaces built on the tarmac, and renovated spaces within the terminals. Significant structural retrofit and relocation of existing power, utility and communications wiring systems was necessary.
