Miami International Airport South Terminal Expansion


Client: Miami-Dade Aviation Department

Location: Miami, FL

Cost: $368,000,000

Size: 1,200,000 SF


The South Terminal expansion program aimed at increasing the international and domestic passenger processing capability at Miami International Airport. The project consisted of the expansion of the existing terminal building on the South, 1,000 feet towards the east, in a four story building containing approximately 1,200,000 square feet and accommodating a mixture of domestic and international passengers. Conceptually, the new terminal building was designed as a new gateway to the U.S. and to Miami-Dade County accommodating facilities for the processing of up to 2,500 passengers per hour and allowing flexibility for use either as a “Hub” or “Origin/Destination” type operation.

Terminal functions included arrival and departure curbs, extensive ticketing areas, airline offices, retail and food service concessions, public restrooms, security check points, automated domestic and international baggage claim and baggage make-up areas, in-transit baggage re-check area, curbside check-in facilities, Federal Inspection Services (FIS) facilities, in-transit lounges, and general storage and support spaces.

B+P's role on this project was to assist in the programming, all architecture, space planning and interior design, construction documents, and construction administration for the new facility which includes passenger ticketing, baggage claim, airline offices, Federal Inspection facilities and offices, in-transit lounge, and cruise ship bus terminal.
