Challenge of Building up Aviation’s Built Environment in North America

Consumer confidence is paramount to the long-term financial sustainability of airlines and airports. After all, there is no silver bullet when it comes to compelling leisure travelers to board flights with family or convince business passengers to swap out video meetings for air travel once again. However, creative adaptations to the built environment are giving an edge to some in the aviation industry.

From signage and sounds to the look and feel of airline holdrooms and premium lounges, new design-build strategies balance more restrictive budgets with priority construction projects.

Our strong recommendation to aviation clients: if you can fund it, build it now. Or, move forward as soon as you can. Why? There is a greater potential for cost savings due to minimal disruption with less airway traffic.
