As part of a seven-year, $1.9 billion improvement project to renew and modernize the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Birdair provided the design-build services to provide the tensile fabric structures for airport’s parking facility.
Birdair designed, fabricated and installed four structures comprised of 60,000 square feet of PTFE, a Teflon®-coated woven fiberglass membrane. The structures are located at the exit and entry points of the south and north ends of the parking facility. Birdair previously installed walkway and terminal PTFE canopies at the airport totaling approximately 38,000 square feet in 2004.
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport opened in 1974 and serves approximately 155,905 passengers daily, making it the third busiest airport in the world in terms of aircraft movement.
