Allegheny County Airport Terminal Renovations

DLA+ Architecture & Interior Design provided architectural services for renovations to the existing Allegheny County Airport (AGC). The terminal, built in 1931, is an art deco design and was constructed with terra-cotta (Speed) tile and a structural steel frame. The Allegheny County Airport Authority wanted to renovate and update the terminal's interior spaces to support business travelers, who frequently fly from the 92-year-old airport.

First floor renovations included upgrades and renovations for a new entry vestibule, lobby, transformation of an existing administrative space into a multi-purpose conference facility, and upgrading restrooms to meet the building’s planned occupancy. The historic herringbone tiles were repaired, and new flooring was designed to match the original, preserving the Art Deco design, while contemporary art and light fixtures were incorporated to lend a modern touch. A/V upgrades were included throughout as well.

The mezzanine waiting area also received updated finishes, a glass railing, and A/V capabilities. Planning for new administrative offices on the second floor stopped at design development, but the conference center and mezzanine renovations were completed in the Spring of 2022.
