The Kansas City Aviation Department has started the operations of the Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) terminal for Kansas City International Airport (KCI) in Missouri, USA.

The new 1.1 million sq ft terminal was designed, planned, and engineered by SOM with Clark Weitz Clarkson (CWC) consolidating all airline operations under one roof. The project is located close to a 6,000-space parking garage designed by local architect Berkebile Nelson Immenschuh McDowell, Inc. (BNIM).

There is space for an additional 11 gates in the two-story, L-shaped structure, which currently has 39 gates. It is built around two parallel concourses that include shops in the middle and are connected by a pedestrian walkway that overlooks the airport. The development is totally powered by electricity, and a solar farm is envisioned to run the airport entirely on renewable energy.
