Nanaimo Airport—Terminal Expansion Phase 1

Projects / Institutional

Project info

In 2016, the Nanaimo Airport Commission Board of Directors approved a 20-year Master Development Plan for the terminal building. The first phase was a $14.2-million expansion of the Nanaimo Airport Air Terminal Building, which officially opened on February 28, 2020. 

The expansion was one of the largest projects in the airport’s history. This project added 14,000 square feet of space, increasing the current footprint by approximately 60% and providing additional comfort and convenience for travelers. 

The scope included a new pre-board screening area with future capacity to screen 1,000 people per hour, a departure lounge that has seating for more than 300 people, and Wi-Fi and device charging stations. The expansion of the airport also allows for the potential for new routes.

Our team provided electrical, security, structured cabling, and audio visual solutions for this project, which included electrical distribution, custom lighting and lighting controls, fire alarm, in-floor duct systems, public address, video surveillance, and access control.
