Places Tied to Their Region & Site

Hennebery Eddy has been a trusted adviser to airports for 20 years, with extensive work at major airports in our region. We use our understanding of aviation to go beyond the basics, creating airport spaces uniquely tied to their locale, giving passengers an intuitive sense of place and connection to their travel destinations.

Terminals & Concourses

We design both mainline contact gates and ground-loading concourse configurations, restrooms and concessions, holdrooms, circulation, and ticket lobbies that welcome passengers with daylight, views, and connections that enhance the passenger experience.

Passenger Amenities

A high-quality passenger experience equates to a successful bottom line. Our team brings forward thoughtful design solutions that contribute to increased dwell time and revenue per enplanement.

Working with Airlines

We work with many of the major West Coast carriers and hold master contracts with several airlines to provide on-call services. We know how to work with airline brand and proprietary standards, plan optimized operational spaces, and design “like-for-like” relocations fitting within lease requirements.


Working with airline innovation teams, we design flow-through and traditional ticketing, including future biometric flexibility.


Our designs for airline lounge spaces help entice passengers and enhance brand loyalty.

Operational Spaces

We master plan and design optimized operational spaces focused on efficiency.

“I have not worked with a better team in all of my years at the Port and before.”

Mobility & Connections

Traveling is about connections — between people, places, and the built environment — and it doesn’t end at the airport curb. Connections extend to a range of multi-modal transit types, including bus, advanced air mobility, rideshare, rental cars, rail, streetcar, and bike. We draw on our experience working across a range of public and private markets, including transit, to inform our approach to these spaces, with an eye toward sustainability.
