Portland Jetport

Portland, Maine

Portland Jetport had grown sporadically, through multiple additions over the years, and suffered a lack of architectural character and severe overcrowding. Gensler’s expansion incorporated a sustainable design program with lasting financial benefits. By highlighting natural materials – real wood beams for the ceiling and roof, with steel supports recalling Maine’s shipping history – the Jetport retains a warm glow and roots in its own context. The renovations include a single security checkpoint, new in-line baggage screening system and connection to the pre-existing terminal – all constructed while maintaining full operation. The transformed passenger experience is complete with clear sightlines, multiple overlooks and a cohesive, natural character.
