Dulles International Airport Terminal

Location: Washington, D.C.

Client: Federal Aviation Administration

The team of Amman & Whitney, Eero Saarinen and Burns & McDonnell provided planning, design and construction services for the development of Dulles International Airport, Washington, D.C. This was the first U.S. terminal to accommodate jet aircraft. Aircraft were remote parked, and “planemates” were used to carry passengers. Burns & McDonnell participated in all phases of master planning, design and construction services and was responsible for mechanical and electrical systems for the terminal building and design of the aircraft refueling systems and utilities for the entire airport. Burns & McDonnell’s involvement in the airport’s development continues with master plan updates and fueling system modernization and expansion.
