Dothan Regional Airport


The new Dothan Regional Airport Terminal Building replaced an outdated terminal building which had become inflexible in its ability to expand with the area's growth and its inability to comfortably serve travelers.  Also, the Dothan-Houston County Airport Authority needed a tool for competing against other regional hubs such as Montgomery, Tallahassee and Columbus.  The main objective of the building project was not only to expand its current capabilities by adding additional carriers but also to use the facility to provide travelers a positive experience flying in and out of the Wiregrass area.  For these reasons, the building was designed in the vernacular of the area that combines today's technology with the charm of the area's traditional roots into a building that would not be antiquated in the future.  The Terminal Building houses three carriers with expansion room for a fourth, four rental car companies, a restaurant and administrative offices for the Airport Authority.  The building features a bracketed arcade the full length of the passenger drop-off and pick-up areas along with a drive through canopy.  The interior of the building focuses on a two story circulation axis space from the main entry to the enplaning and deplaning waiting area.  The project also called for the relocation of the FAA offices and equipment into a new facility adjacent to the Terminal Building.
