RNO Master Plan: Project 4

Project 4:  Terminal Development – Concourse Redevelopment

Project Description

The development of replacement concourses was identified in the 2018 RNO Airport Master Plan Update as a critical project to improve functional performance, operational efficiency, address the forecasted passenger demand, address changing fleet mixes, and provide adequate passenger and airline spaces. Issues identified include:

  • Narrowness of the existing passenger circulation hallways on the concourses,
  • Long walking distances from the consolidated checkpoint to the airline gates,
  • Small passenger holdrooms and constrained aircraft gate envelopes,
  • Lack of available leasable space, especially back-of-the-house space, for tenants,
  • Lack of available back-of-the-house space for airport functions,
  • Confusing wayfinding due to existing signage and limited line-of-sight between hallways and holdrooms,
  • Remaining useful life of a number of building systems, and
  • A Customs & Border Protection facility located outside of the terminal facility.

The 2018 RNO Airport Master Plan Update recommended a three-phase concourse redevelopment program, starting with a replacement Concourse C, followed by a replacement Concourse B, and concluding with the development of a new Concourse D.
