Robins & Morton Makes Progress on Huntsville International Airport Main Concourse Upgrades; Work Begins on Two New Airport Improvement Projects

Construction firm Robins & Morton is currently working on three improvement projects at Huntsville International Airport.

The $13 million main concourse renovation, which began in April 2023, will increase accessibility for travelers with the addition of a second elevator and a second set of escalators. The existing elevator and escalators will also be replaced, and two new sets of stairs will be installed.

To complete the upgrades, temporary ramps were constructed to connect the security exit area to the concourse, maintaining uninterrupted access for travelers to their gates. The project is scheduled to be completed in about a year.

Meanwhile, work is underway on the renovation and expansion of Signature Aviation’s private terminal, a fixed-base operator (FBO) facility that will serve private, corporate, and government aviation customers.

The 5,000-square-foot renovation and 3,500-square-foot expansion will include a redesigned entrance and elegant, new interior, complete with comfortable lounges and private meeting rooms for travelers. Work is expected to be completed later this year.

Finally, Robins & Morton is working to convert an existing airport parking lot into a rental car return lot. The project will include a new entrance and the addition of two canopies, one for the rental car facility and another to cover a walkway for customers. The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2024.

“We are excited about the progress on several upgrades at Huntsville International Airport,” Robins & Morton Division Manager Mitch Coley said. “These renovations will help create a more seamless, welcoming experience for travelers at the airport voted No. 2 in the 2023 USA Today Readers’ Choice Awards for best small airport. We are thankful for the trust the Huntsville-Madison County Airport Authority and Signature Aviation has placed in us to deliver these projects.”

Robins & Morton is the general contractor for each of these projects. EDT-THA Architecture is the architect for the main concourse renovation, HDg Architecture is the architect for the private terminal project, and KPS Group, Inc. is the architect for the rental car return lot project.
