The global architecture firm based in London, has revealed plans for the US$1.4bn expansion of the Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey.

The airport is set to receive a new terminal with 33 additional gates throughout two floors of the T-shaped building.

The project will cover 90,000sqm of construction land and will introduce more efficient check in systems and security screening processes.

By constructing more efficient methods, the airport aims to meet the increasing volume of passengers travelling through the airport – Terminal A is anticipated to increase passenger volume by 23% in the next five years.

The architecture company was appointed to lead the design of the construction project earlier this month, in partnership with STV.

“We are delighted to have been selected for this landmark opportunity to help transform the passenger experience,” commented Mark Husser, a Partner at Grimshaw Architects.

“Newark has a rich architectural history dominated by the modular concrete structures of the existing terminals.”

“Relating to this context while creating a light, modern, steel and glass building with open sight lines and natural light, the new Terminal 1 will be a world-class gateway serving an ambassadorial role for the New Jersey and New York region and establish a new trajectory for the future.”
