Springfield-Branson National Airport
Midfield Terminal at Springfield-Branson National Airport is a replacement terminal for a 44-year-old terminal, which had exceeded its maximum capacity of 880,000 passengers a year. The new terminal was constructed on previously undeveloped farmland on the west side of Springfield, less than a mile from the old terminal and about 50 miles north of Branson. The new terminal is located midway between a 7,000-foot runway on the east and a future third runway to the northwest; hence the name Midfield.
Midfield Terminal contains 275,000 square feet, 100,000 square feet more than the old terminal. It spans more than 900 linear feet and incorporates 2,700 tons of structural steel. The terminal currently has 10 gates, and was designed to accommodate another 45 gates to the north.
Faith Technologies was the electrical contractor on this project. Ninety-eight percent of our labor/work was self-performed, and we finished this project within a two year time period. We completed the electrical work on the 10-gate airport terminal and 10-gates, and all of the electrical data was self-performed. As a team we successfully completed the security, lighting control, fire alarm systems, lightning protection and sumitomo air blown fiber throughout this terminal. We utilized our in-house pre-fabrication wherever it was possible, and our in-house CAD department designed the slab rough-in drawings and re-designed electric rooms.
