Veterans Airport Terminal

 Location:  Marion, IL      Owner: Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois    |    Architect:  RS&H Illinois

Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois was in need of a new terminal due to the difficult and costly upkeep and inefficient layout of their existing 40+ year old facility.

The new 23,000 SF, two-story terminal was designed with the ability for future expansion, and features an improved layout separating passenger flow functions into arrival and departure areas, along with a centralized security checkpoint and hold room.

Amenities and services include ticketing facilities, baggage screening, modern passenger waiting areas, security screening and baggage markup areas, a new baggage carousel system, as well as a business center and car rental offices.

“The Poettker Team was instrumental in all aspects of the construction process, from accurate cost estimating and detailed constructability reviews with value engineering recommendations, to on time and in budget project delivery. ”
