Helping one of the world’s busiest airports to keep moving

With almost 70 million travelers passing through Denver International Airport (DEN) each year, the world’s third busiest airport wanted to enhance safety and security, create more intuitive passenger flow, and increase capacity to accommodate continued growth.

For the recently completed Phase 1 of this multi-year undertaking, Stantec continued the design leadership for renovating the middle portion of the airport’s Jeppesen Terminal. This phase included deployment of all new hybrid check-in pods that help streamline the baggage/check-in process, while providing an intuitive entry to the terminal and its open, light-filled passenger experience. 

Phase 2 will streamline security by building a new state-of-the-art TSA checkpoint on Level 6 in the northwest quadrant of the Jeppesen Terminal. The new checkpoint is complemented by innovative passenger queueing and improved post-security circulation. Consolidating the checkpoints allows for the balanced redistribution of passengers. Beautifully clad state-of-the-art automated screening lanes incorporate innovative technology including automated tray returns, alarmed bag diverters, and remote screening for faster and less intrusive screening processes.

Future phases will add check-in pods, restrooms, and improved circulation to the south end of the terminal to create a memorable arrival and landside experience. Upon completion, travelers will be able to enjoy more efficient seamless travel in a modern appealing environment that improves the passenger experience.
