This project impacts 17 secure access gates throughout the airport. During design, clear communication with airport stakeholders and various user groups was essential to understand how each gate is used daily fully. This communication helped identify several gates that were determined to be non-essential and were able to be removed and replaced with a fence. One of the project’s primary goals was to make the equipment and user interface at each gate consistent. Each gate location was unique and required site-specific considerations and improvements to achieve the desired outcome. Coordination with RDU operations and IT was conducted to determine the best alternatives for equipment selection and extension of power and fiber optic utilities to locations not previously served.
