PDX Terminal Core Redevelopment hero image

Portland International Airport Gets Its Biggest Makeover to Date, from a Team with over Twenty Years of PDX Experience

PDX Terminal Core Redevelopment

With annual travelers expected to climb to 33 million by 2045, the Terminal Core Redevelopment project is a vital expansion that ensures PDX will be able to serve the community well into the future. Using lessons learned during our long history of construction at PDX, Hoffman will preserve the unique character of our beloved airport while making much-needed improvements. To maintain the Best Airport in America, as rated by Travel + Leisure magazine seven years in a row, our team is providing passengers with clear wayfinding, safe passage, and access to the PDX amenities they love.

In a joint venture with Skanska USA, Hoffman is playing a major role in the series of transformative projects at Portland International Airport known as PDX Next. For the primary TCORE project, we are completely remodeling the Terminal Core. We will install a new 9-acre large-span roofing system over the entire terminal core complex, build a 150-foot multi-floor addition between Concourses C and D, and add new pre- and post-security concessions.

The renovated passenger entry terminal will double the size of the current ticketing and lobby area when it opens in 2025. We are also replacing 16 aging passenger boarding bridges plus equipment throughout the PDX concourses. Gate count is critical for PDX operation, so the team must coordinate with each airline to replace one bridge at a time. In addition, Hoffman is rebuilding and enlarging Concourse B.

To do this, Concourse A and the old Concourse B are being demolished and enabling work is required in Concourse C to give displaced airlines a place to move. All construction is being phased to maintain continuous 24/7 operations and uninterrupted service for the 50,000 passengers a day who travel throughout PDX, so that it can maintain its status as America’s Best Airport. The team is drawing on Hoffman’s expertise in public CM/GC work and our extensive experience working at PDX airport. The project is targeting LEED Gold.
