Orlando International Airport Terminal C Project Awarded Grand Award in Transportation Engineering Excellence

ORLANDO, FL — HNTB, an infrastructure solutions firm, has received an Engineering Excellence Grand Award by the American Council of Engineering Companies Florida (ACEC Florida) in the Transportation category for its Orlando International Airport Terminal C project. The ACEC Florida Engineering Excellence Awards recognize outstanding contributions to the consulting engineering profession by a panel of experts in related fields.

HNTB served as the architect of record to bring the Greater Orlando Airport Authority’s vision to life. The terminal is an architectural depiction of everything that attracts tourists to central Florida. Its design is intended to capture the elements of water, foliage, and sky by incorporating glass skylights, terrazzo art, and artificial palm and bald cypress trees.

“Terminal C at the Orlando International Airport welcomes travelers to experience central Florida through its purposeful design,” said George Gilhooley, PE, HNTB’s East Florida Office Leader. “Visitors are met with an efficient travel experience and modern comforts throughout the terminal. We are proud to work with GOAA on their passenger-first experience in Terminal C.”

The Grand Award winners are finalists for the Florida Grand Conceptor Award, which will be presented on February 23, 2024 at the ACEC Florida Engineering Excellence Awards Banquet in Orlando. Grand Award winners will have the opportunity to enter the national ACEC Engineering Excellence Awards competition which honors projects worldwide.
