Located south of Fort Myers, FL, the new Southwest Florida International Airport Mid-Field Terminal Complex is a $386 million project that opened in 2005. Kerestes-Martin Associates was selected, by the primary contractor, to manage the signage portion of the 765,000 square-foot terminal building construction.
This busy gateway to the southwestern region of Florida’s Gulf Coast serves as the arrival point for countless visitors to Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Fort Myers Beach, Naples and Marco Island. It is ranked among the 60 busiest airports in the United States, serving more than 5 million passengers annually.
The new mid-field terminal, which will primarily serve the five county region of Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades along the Gulf Coast of Florida, replaces the current terminal which opened in May of 1983.
KMA was selected to manage the signage portion of the project, based on their reputation of excellence in the area of project management. This service, offered to owners and general contractors alike, includes review of shop drawings, review of scheduled location plans, overview of all issues involving manufacturing, monitoring of installation of all necessary signage and development of a comprehensive punchlist for any outstanding items.
The new Mid-Field Terminal project requires KMA to serve as the technical expert for the general contractor regarding all issues involving signage and to track the project and maintain a tight timeline, within budget expectations.
