Burns Helps Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority Drive “BNA Vision”
Metropolitan Nashville is one of the most vibrant, quickly growing areas in the country. By 2041, the population of the Greater Nashville Area is expected to surpass 2.5 million. The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA) has embarked on a major expansion program, “BNA Vision” – a dynamic expansion plan designed to get in front of growth and maintain Nashville International as a world-class airport. BNA Vision includes construction of a new Parking and Transportation Center, an International Arrivals Building, Expansion of Concourse D, a Hotel and Landside Plaza, and renovation of the central terminal area.
To support MNAA and the continued growth in the region, Burns is serving as the technology and engineered systems engineer for several capacity enhancements at BNA. Highlights of Burns’ specialized engineering for BNA include:
Information Technology, Security and Special Systems Engineering
- Concept and preliminary design for BNA Vision (with Corgan Architects) to set the technology program for subsequent development projects
- Concourse D and Terminal Wings project (with Hensel Phelps and Fentress Architects) providing additional airside capacity, new campus-wide Central Utility Plant, relocation of remote On-Screen Resolution station, and interim solution for all ticketing and security screening checkpoint operations
