Recap of WINSGSPAN and Development Phases

In July 2012, Greenville Spartanburg International Airport launched WINGSPAN, the terminal improvement project. The projected four-year program was composed of three phases that would allow for a higher volume of travelers, be more environmentally friendly, and improve aesthetics throughout the facility. Since WINGSPAN is nearing completion, we thought we would share a little more about the three phases that will dramatically shape Greenville-Spartanburg International airport to one of the most operationally capable and efficient airports of its size.

 

PHASE 1: Enabling Work and Baggage Claim Renovations

Mechanical and electrical systems overhaul will be completed throughout each phase of the program.

Enabling Projects Include:

  • Rental Car Customer Center relocation
  • Concourse A & B expansion of restrooms and food, beverage and retail concessions
  • Construction of the North Wing for temporary airline facilities
  • Utility and infrastructure relocation

Baggage Claims Renovations Include:

  • New baggage claim carousels
  • Construct canopy on curbside for loading and unloading in front baggage claim
  • Covered walkways to parking garages
  • New glass front on terminal

PHASE 2: Building Core Construction

Enhance interior area with state-of-the-art equipment and amenities.

  • Grand Hall Development including new food, beverage, and retail concessions area
  • Renovation of the existing ticketing lobby
  • New Customer Service booths
  • New Landside Garden
  • New baggage screening equipment and facilities
  • Security Checkpoint consolidation and relocation
  • Concourse A and B renovation

PHASE 3: Project Wrap-Up

Complete administrative updates for final phase of improvements.

  • Construction of the new Administrative Office for Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport
  • Construction of the Conference Center

When WINGSPAN began in July 2012, a gallery of photo renderings and a virtual walkthrough was created. Scroll through the galleries and let us know how you think the updates are progressing!
