Thornton Tomasetti provided structural design services for the new United Airlines terminal. The project includes 42 gates in two parallel, 1,600-foot concourses and baggage handling areas. The long-span ticketing area serves as the dramatic entrance to the structure with 1,730-foot-long vaulted gate areas. The ticketing pavilion features folded plate trusses creating a 120-foot by 810-foot column-free area.
