McCarran’s Terminal 3 nets design firm an award
The Las Vegas office of Houston-based PGAL, LLC has won the 2013 American Institute of Architects Design Merit Award in Nevada for its design of McCarran International Airport's Terminal 3.
The 2 million-square-foot, $1.4 billion terminal opened in June 2012 and houses one of the nation's most sophisticated and technically advanced operations and passenger-baggage systems. The half-mile-long, three-level terminal has 14 aircraft gates and ticket counters and public facilities for 30 more gates in the D concourse, which is linked with an underground shuttle system.
The 67-year-old v has 10 U.S. offices and another in Mexico City. One of the company's specialties is aviation facility development. It provides architecture, engineering, planning, interior architecture, program management and technology planning services for public and private sector clients.
