With EYW Construction Underway, Designers Think Outside The Box

While construction has begun on Key West International Airport’s new Concourse A project, passengers will notice something familiar in the construction zone being used in an innovative fashion: C crates.

Arriving and departing passengers each have a designated, 80-foot tunnel made of shipping containers for the transition from the existing hold room to the apron, or in reverse upon arrival.

The idea was the result of a collaboration between construction and design teams who were looking for a way to create a seamless transition while protecting passengers at the same time. The containers were put into use in early January.

“As always, we want to keep our passengers safe. We also wanted to shield them as much as possible from ongoing construction, and the best way to do that was to use this innovative solution,” said Director of Airports Richard Strickland.

While rugged enough for the elements on the outside, the interiors are accessible, well-lit and air conditioned.
