With annual passenger growth of 7% to 25% over the last four years, Appleton International Airport (ATW) knew it was time to renovate.

After sustained growth over several years, the renovation coincided with a 25% annual increase of passengers in 2018.

“Since we were experiencing such growth, one of our biggest challenges was keeping queuing and traffic flow areas open as we were doing construction,” recalls Weber. “We went through spring break 2018 with half of our checkpoint closed.”

The new, more streamlined security checkpoint features a living plant wall and an open floor plan for improved circulation and wayfinding.
