Occupant Comfort and Sustainability in Aviation Design
This session has passed.
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.
