San Francisco (SFO) Terminal 3 East Retrofit and Expansion

The seismic retrofit and expansion of this fully operational, two-story LEED Gold airport terminal enhances concessions, relieves congestion at the passenger screening checkpoint, and adds a new airport club room while strengthening the existing structure. An innovative structural retrofit solution utilizes the new structural expansion on the terminal’s airside to seismically retrofit the entire existing structure with an “exterior buttress” approach.
