Corgan was commissioned by American Airlines to assist in the planning, programming, and design development of American Airlines new Hub facilities at Miami International Airport. Approximately 2.2 million square feet of new construction was added to 1.7 million square feet of renovated and converted areas. The resulting design recognizes the applicable components of the existing facilities, while creating a new, clean and unified image that enhances operational efficiency, and improves passenger levels of service. Planning and programming of AA's future schedule required the development of a 47-gate facility, 38-commuter parking positions, 4,000-passenger-per-hour FIS, people mover system, new outbound baggage system, new baggage claim areas, and consolidation of all airline support facilities.



We are consensus builders. Our experience with airport operators, airlines, aviation facilities and other air transit organizations gives Corgan a unique vantage point of the elements needed to facilitate successful operations. We have successful partnerships with a wide range of clients including airport operators, airlines, local transit authorities and government sponsored research organizations. Our projects are just as varied—ground-up terminal buildings, major terminal renovations, terminal planning, cargo and maintenance facilities and system-wide implementation projects. Corgan initiates and implements truly innovative design solutions at any scale, from building additions and renovations to new, large scale terminal programs. Our expertise is second to none and with our global presence, we are able to quickly and efficiently service aviation clients coast to coast and internationally from any of our offices.




We understand scheduling, capacity, material selection and operational challenges. We facilitate consensus amongst all interested parties in achieving a long-term design solution. The need for uninterrupted operations is unquestionable, so we strive for passenger and employee convenience and safety.
