Dayton International Airport Terminal Lobby Security Enhancement

Vandalia, OH

We Are Building

This 30,000 sf Lobby Security Enhancement included the installation of an Explosive Detection System (EDS) and Baggage Handling System (BHS). The project also featured the reconstruction of airline ticket offices to accomodate the new BHS, as well as the expansion of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security checkpoint area.

Features and Facts

Through coordination with the owners, Messer was able to complete the project without disrupting the daily activities of the airport. The majority of work took place during off hours to avoid high visitor traffic. Also, temporary walls were built, ensuring visitor safety and ease during their time in the airport.

Messer shared Dayton International Airport’s commitment to M/WBE participation. Messer exceeded the owner's 15% MWBE inclusion goal and was able to finish the project successfully with 29% MWBE participation.
