This session will use the recently completed Concourse E Extension at Portland International Airport (registered LEED Gold) as a case study for centering occupant experience and sustainability in aviation design. We will provide a brief overview of project sustainability and occupant comfort goals, followed by an in-depth discussion of key strategies incorporated to achieve them. The presentation will describe how large, complex spaces can be spatially organized to maintain comfortable human scale and promote wayfinding. We will review the importance of daylighting on circadian rhythms and demonstrate how the case study incorporates abundant natural lighting while maintaining a high-performance envelope. We will also share how decisions about views, programming, and furnishings can positively impact occupant sense-of-place amid the transitory process of air travel.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand key design principles for occupant comfort in aviation design
  • Learn daylighting and envelope design strategies that benefit occupant health and wellness, and complement energy use reduction goals
  • Learn about the challenges and opportunities for pursuing high levels of LEED certification on an airport project
  • Understand best practices for promoting inclusivity and occupant comfort in airport furnishings and programming

This event will be held on Microsoft Teams and log-in information will be provided to those who register.

Hennebery Eddy will be offering 1 AIA LU/HSW learning credit.
