The Syracuse Hancock International Airport is currently undergoing a $50 million dollar redesign which will add an additional 14,500 feet to the existing airport. Designed by Gensler, the project will feature a reimagined interior designed to give travelers a more modern and functional space with it’s first complete ​update in 55 years. The airport upgrade will feature an ​perforated and backlit exterior facade designed to prominently welcome​ the 1 million passengers which travel through the facilities yearly.                              

The facade will be composed of a unitized perforated Weathered Steel panel system fabricated to boldly brand the Syracuse branch of the NY Airport System. The design ​​will allow sunlight into the terminal facility, and provide​ an​ illuminated backdrop for the world class facility at night.                                                  

According to NY Governor, Andrew Cuomo, the airport redesign is posed to revitalize the area as t​he main entrance to travelers ​and communicate ​that they've arrived to a growing and vibrant region​.  ​       

Construction began in September of 2017 and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2018.
