Built in 1969, the twelve main terminal gates at Little Rock National Airport were handling nearly three times the intended number of flights for the original design. Given the amount of growth, the airport authority is undertaking a phased renovation and expansion based on the 2020 Vision Plan. Phase 1 of the plan included extension of the south canopy, renovations to the existing lobby and ticketing areas, upgraded baggage handling, and expansion of the security checkpoint. Phase 2 will result in a seventeen-gate concourse. SGH provided structural and seismic engineering for both the renovations and new construction.
